Afghanistan fast bowler, Aftab Alam has been handed a one-year suspension from all domestic and international cricket. The suspension comes in following a code of conduct violation at the ICC World Cup 2019.

The Afghanistan Cricket Board (ACB), who earlier launched an investigation into what it said in a statement was Alam’s “alleged misconduct off the field” has handed down a one-year suspension for a code of conduct violation at the Cricket World Cup.

It was later found out that he was sent after allegations of misbehavior with a female guest at the team hotel in Southampton.

The alleged incident of misbehavior is said to have taken place on June 22, after Alam played his last game where Afghanistan lost to India by 11-runs.

The decision of his suspension came after an investigation by the Afghanistan Cricket Board’s disciplinary committee, following a decision taken at the board’s annual general meeting in Kabul last week.
