(Irfan Ahmed has been charged on nine offences)

ICC have handed life bans to Hong Kong cricketers Irfan Ahmed and Nadeem Ahmed whereas their teammate Haseeb Amjad has copped a five-year ban for breaching the Anti-Corruption Code. The ICC Tribunal heard evidence that all three players "fixed or contrived to fix matches" and "failed to disclose approaches to fix during a number of international fixtures across a two-year period".

Nadeem Ahmed and Haseeb Amjad were charged on three offences each.
