Shakib was banned for two years for breaching ICC’s Anti-Corruption Code

One of the most unfortunate occurrences has transpired in the history of Bangladesh cricket as Shakib al Hasan, Bangladesh Test and T20I captain, was banned for two years from cricket.

Shakib was banned, with one-year suspended, after he accepted three charges of breaching the ICC’s Anti-Corruption Code of failing to disclose to the ACU or any other concerned authority in full details of any approaches or invitations he had received to engage in corrupt conduct.

One year of that ban is a suspended sentence that will take effect if Shakib fails to obey the code by the anti-corruption.

Following his ban , several members of the Bangladesh Cricket Team, as well as others cricketers along with Bangladeshi celebrities took to the social media to impart their opinions about the debacle.

Some excerpts of the reaction are as follows:
