21 April 2016 Current Affairs GK: International Cricket Council (ICC) on 20 April 2016 announced that it has suspended Hong Kong all-rounder Irfan Ahmed from Cricket for two-and-a-half years. He was suspended after he admitted to breaching the ICC Anti-Corruption Code (the ‘Code’).Ahmed was charged with offences under the Code and provisionally suspended by the ICC on 4 November 2015.This followed an investigation carried out by the ICC's Anti-Corruption Unit (ACU), relating in part to the activities of another individual known to the ACU and suspected of making corrupt approaches to participants.His period of ineligibility will take effect from the date of his provisional suspension and will therefore expire on 4 May 2018.ICC in its statement said that Ahmed was not charged with any offence involving corruption but he failed to disclose details to it full details of approaches or invitations to engage in corrupt conduct that had been made to him between January 2012 and January 2014.During the investigation, Ahmed admitted that he was aware of his obligations under the Code and that his failure to report such approaches was a breach of the Anti-Corruption Code.Ahmed has accepted the imposition of such a penalty and therefore waived his right to appeal against the decision.
