Former United Arab Emirates captain Mohammad Naveed and batsman Shaiman Anwar have been banned for eight years for attempted match-fixing.

in the JanuaryNaveed, 33, and Anwar, 42, have been suspended for violating the International Cricket Council's anti-corruption code.

They have been accused of attempting to fix games during the 2019 World Cup qualifier tournament and not reporting any corrupt approaches.

The bans are dated back to October 2019.

Naveed, who played in 39 one-day internationals and 31 Twenty20s, was also found guilty of similar violations of the Emirates Cricket Board Code for the domestic T10 League.

"Both had long international careers and were very familiar with the threat posed by match manipulators," said Alex Marshall, general manager of the ICC Integrity Unit, in a statement.

"The choice of both of you to engage in this corrupt activity was a cynical betrayal of your positions, your teammates and all supporters of cricket in the UAE.

"I am pleased that the independent tribunal has imposed significant bans on all types of cricket and this should serve as a warning to any cricketer who is considering taking the wrong turn."
