The 26-year-old pacer, Aftab Alam, has been suspended from both domestic and international Cricket on charges of violating the disciplinary code of conduct during the 2019 Cricket world cup held in England. The decision was taken by the Afghanistan Cricket Board’s Discipline Committee.
Afghanistan cricket board informed that Alam had been removed from the team and sent back home after he breached the disciplinary code of Conduct by ICC but didn’t clarify what exactly was the breach.
An inquiry was set up after Alam was sent back and the ban for one year comes as a result of the inquiry in which he was found guilty. During these 12 months of the ban, his contract with ACB will also be suspended.
The last game that Alam played at the 2019 ICC world cup before he was sent back was against India at Southhampton where reports of his misconduct with a woman in the team hotel also came around.
In this edition of the world cup, Alam played 3 of the 8 matches for Afghanistan, in which he had a total of 4 wickets to his name.
