Afghanistan fast bowler, Aftab Alam, has been suspended from Domestic and International cricket for one year for violating the disciplinary code of conduct during the 2019 World Cup.
The decision came out last week after an investigation thrown on him by the Afghanistan Cricket Board’s disciplinary committee at the board’s annual general meeting at Kabul.
Alam played his last game on June 22 in which Afghanistan lost the match with 11 runs against India, where he was caught of serious misbehavior with a female guest at the team hotel in Southampton.
Initially, he was suspended for two matches by head coach Phil Simmon for not being present in the ICC anti-corruption unit meeting on June 23. Later it has emerged as he was in London and went to a hotel later on that day.
Alam was however sent home for his misbehavior in the unit against the rules for a year. Coming to theWorld Cup, he played three out of eight matches and took a total of four wickets.
