Dhaka: Afghanistan wicketkeeper-batsman Shafiqullah Shafaq has been banned for six years from all forms of cricket after breaching anti-corruption rules.

The 30-year-old has played 24 one-day internationals and 46 Twenty20s.
The Afghanistan Cricket Board’s senior anti-corruption manager said the ban was a warning for all players.
