Rizwan Javed: Rizwan was among eight players and officials charged by the ICC on behalf of the ECB (as designated anti-corruption officials under the code) in September last year. Among those named was Bangladesh international Nasir Hossain, who is serving a two-year ban.

Five violations of the Emirates Cricket Board’s (ECB) Anti-Corruption Code pertaining to 2021 Abu Dhabi T10 Cricket League participants were found to have been committed by Rizwan. Rizwan failed to answer the charges and was therefore deemed guilty of the crime, and his right to trial was waived.

Javed Rizwan declared guilty.:

Article 2.1.1 – Being a party to, attempting to fix, unfairly influence or attempt to influence matches or aspects of matches in the Abu Dhabi T10 2021 (on three separate occasions).

Article 2.1.3 – Offering a reward to another participant in exchange for a player involved in corrupt conduct.

Article 2.1.4 – Directly or indirectly soliciting, inducing, enticing, instructing, inducing, encouraging or knowingly facilitating any participant to violate Code Article 2.1 (on three separate occasions) to do.

Paragraph 2.4.4: Not providing the DACO with complete information about any approach or offer to participate in corrupt activity as defined by the Code.

Paragraph 2.4.6 – Failure or refusal without good reason to cooperate with any investigation conducted by the DACO into possible corrupt conduct under the Code.

This sanction comes before Rizwan’s ban date of 19 September 2023, when he was provisionally suspended for the above offences.

ICC General Manager Integrity Alex Marshall said, “Rizwan Javed has been handed a lengthy ban from cricket for repeated and serious attempts to corrupt professional cricketers.”

“The ban imposed should send a strong message to other corrupt people trying to target cricket at any level and shows that any attempt to corrupt cricket will be dealt with sternly.”
