The UAE players Mohammad Naveed and Shaiman Anwar Butt have been found guilty of two offences, each under the ICC Anti-Corruption Code, following a hearing by an independent Anti-Corruption Tribunal, a statement from the game’s governing body said.

Naveed and Shaiman, who were charged under the ICC Anti-Corruption Code for attempting to corrupt matches in the ICC Men’s T20 World Cup Qualifier 2019, have been found guilty on all charges after they exercised their right to a hearing before a tribunal.

The pair remain suspended and sanctions will follow in due course.

Naveed has also been found guilty of attempting to fix a match during the 2019 T10 League, the ICC said.
