The International Cricket Council (ICC) has banned Brendan Taylor for three-and-a-half years.

About Brendan Taylor’s suspension:

This incident took place just days after the former Zimbabwe captain released a statement admitting he had failed to immediately report a corrupt approach by an Indian businessman and that he was blackmailed after taking cocaine during that meeting.

ICC in a statement on January 28 said, “Brendan Taylor has been handed a three-and-a-half year ban from all forms of cricket after he accepted four charges of breaching the ICC Anti-Corruption Code and one separate charge of breaching the Anti-Doping Code.”

Brendan accepts fault:

A few days ago, Taylor had made a disclosure through his social media handle that he had accepted money from a dubious Indian businessman but said was not a cheat. “I may be many things but I am not a cheat,” the former wicketkeeper batsman had said.

The ICC said Taylor chose to admit the charges under the provisions of the ICC Anti-Corruption Code and agreed to the sanctions in lieu of an Anti-Corruption Tribunal hearing.

About Brendan Taylor:

Born on February 6, 1986 Brendan Ross Murray Taylor is a Zimbabwean former international cricketer and a former Zimbabwean captain, who played all formats of the game.

Taylor captained Zimbabwe in ODIs until 2015 ICC Cricket World Cup, having taken over the reins from Elton Chigumbura after the 2011 Cricket World Cup. He became the first Zimbabwean batsman to hit back-to-back One-Day International (ODI) centuries (128 not out and 107 not out), achieved against New Zealand in October 2011.

He called off his national side soon after the 2015 World Cup but on 14 September 2017, he terminated his contract with Nottinghamshire to return home to Zimbabwe. It was announced that Taylor had decided return home and play for Zimbabwe for personal reasons.
