Former Zimbabwe cricket director banned for 10 years

The International Cricket Council have banned former cricket chief, Enock Ikope from all cricket after being found guilty of corruption.

Ikope was found guilty of breaching three counts of the ICC Anti-Corruption Code. These all involved his failure to cooperate with the ACU’s investigation and refusing to hand over his mobile phone along with documents demanded by the ACU.

The offence was linked to the 2017 match-fixing attempt during the West Indies Tour.

Mr Ikope was banned by the Tribunal for 5 years in respect of each breach. The Tribunal ordered the first two of the 5 year periods of ineligibility to run concurrently, with the penalty for the third breach to run consecutively, resulting in a total ban of 10 years.
