Brendan Taylor banned from cricket until 2025

By ZBC Reporter

FORMER Zimbabwe National Cricket Team Captain, Brendan Taylor has been banned from cricket for three and a half years after admitting charges related to drug abuse and a match-fixing approach.

Taylor claimed he was blackmailed with a video in which he was caught on camera taking cocaine before it was used to threaten him to accept a bribe of 15,000 dollars.

The 35-year-old, who took five months to report the incident, will not be allowed to play any form of cricket until 2025.

International Cricket Council (ICC) rules state that players must report any approach to fix a game without delay.
