The ICC Tuesday banned the ace Tigers all-rounder for two years, with one year of that suspended, for failing to report multiple corrupt approaches made during the tri-nation ODI series between Bangladesh, Sri Lanka and Zimbabwe in January, 2018 and the IPL T20 2018

Bangladesh Test and T20I captain Shakib al Hasan will miss a total of 36 matches – 13 Tests, six ODIs and 17 T20Is – during the span of his one-year ban, with the exception of the World T20I 2020 in Australia.

The ICC Tuesday banned the ace Tigers all-rounder for two years, with one year of that suspended, for failing to report multiple corrupt approaches made during the tri-nation ODI series between Bangladesh, Sri Lanka and Zimbabwe in January, 2018 and the IPL T20 2018.

Shakib will now miss the upcoming tour of India, comprising two Tests and three T20Is next month.

In December, the 32-year old will miss three ODIs away to Sri Lanka.

If the Tigers do visit Pakistan pending security clearance, the Magura lad will miss two Tests and three T20Is in January-February, 2020.  

Shakib will then miss the two Tests at home against Australia in February, and the tour of Zimbabwe in March, containing a solitary Test and five T20Is.

The all-rounder will also miss the tour of Ireland in May-June, comprising a one-off Test, three ODIs and as many T20Is before sitting out the three Tests away to Sri Lanka in July-August.

He will then miss the two New Zealand home Tests in August-September before sitting out the three NZ T20Is away in October.

Then comes the all-important World T20I, scheduled to be held in October-November, in which Shakib will miss the entire eight-team first round, with Bangladesh’s matches slated for October 19, 21 and 23.

Shakib’s one-year ban will come to an end on October 29.

If the Tigers do go through to the 12-team second round, let it be as the group champion or runners-up, Shakib will miss the first two games.

Provided the Bangladesh team management picks Shakib in the squad for the marquee event, he will then be available for the remaining three matches, and potentially the semi-finals and the final.
