United Arab Emirates cricket trio charged with multiple breaches of ICC anti-corruption code

Captain Mohammad Naveed is one of three United Arab Emirates players to have been provisionally suspended after being charged under the International Cricket Council’s anti-corruption code.

Naveed faces multiple charges, including an agreement to “fix or contrive” matches in the upcoming World Twenty20 qualifiers.

Fellow seamer Qadeer Ahmed has been charged with six breaches of the code while batsman Shaiman Anwar faces two.

They have until 30 October to respond.

In addition to two charges under the ICC code, Naveed, 32, has also been charged with two breaches of the Emirates Cricket Board Code for the domestic T10 League.
