The United Arab Emirates (UAE) cricketers Mohammad Naveed and Shaiman Anwar Butt have been banned for eight years from all forms of cricket by the International Cricket Council (ICC). Naveed, the former UAE captain and right arm bowler, and Butt, the middle-order batsman were found guilty by the ICC Anti-Corruption Tribunal. The bans on two players have been backdated to October 16, 2019, when they were provisionally suspended for attempting to corrupt matches at the ICC T20 World Cup Qualifiers in 2019 in the UAE.

ICC with a press release stated that both the cricketers were found guilty of Article 2.1.1- for being party to an agreement or effort to fix or contrive or otherwise influence improperly the result, progress, conduct, or other aspects of a match or matches at the ICC Men's T20 World Cup Qualifier 2019.

Both the players were also found guilty of Article 2.4.4 - for failing to disclose to the ACU full details of any approaches or invitations received to engage in corrupt conduct under the Code at the ICC Men's T20 World Cup Qualifier 2019.

In 2019, while participating in T10 League, Naveed had also breached the two counts of the Emirates Cricket Board Anti-Corruption Code. In 2019, the former UAE captain was booked under Article 2.1.1 – for being party to an agreement or effort to fix or contrive or otherwise influence improperly the result, progress, conduct, or other aspects of a match or matches at the T10 League 2019 and Article 2.4.4 - Failing to disclose to the ACU full details of any approaches or invitations received to engage in corrupt conduct under the Code at the T10 League 2019.

Alex Marshall, the ICC Anti-Corruption Unit General Manager, was satisfied with the sanctions given to both the players. In a statement, he said, "I am pleased that the independent Tribunal has imposed significant bans from all forms of cricket and this should serve as a warning to any cricketer who considers taking the wrong path."
