Bangladesh captain and all-rounder Shakib Al Hasan was banned from all cricket for two years, with one year suspended, the International Cricket Council (ICC) said.

The ban came after Shakib "accepted three charges of breaching the ICC Anti-Corruption Code", the sport's governing body said in a statement.

These included failing to disclose to the ICC's Anti-Corruption Unit full details of approaches or invitations made in relation to the Bangladesh, Sri Lanka and Zimbabwe Tri-Series in January 2018 as well as the 2018 Indian Premier League (IPL), it said.

The 32-year-old's ban came as a blow to Bangladesh's preparations for next month's tour of India where the all-rounder was set to lead the team for a two-Test series and three T20 international matches.
