Dubai : Hong Kong players Irfan Ahmed and Nadeem Ahmed have been banned from all cricket for life, while teammate Haseeb Amjad has received a five-year ban for involvement in fixing matches.

During the hearing, the International Cricket Council's Anti-Corruption Tribunal heard evidence that all three players fixed or contrived to fix matches, failed, for reward, to perform and failed to disclose approaches to fix during a number of international fixtures across a two-year period, according to the apex body.

"Their conduct was premeditated and sophisticated and each of the Ahmed brothers sought to corrupt others."
