Javed Omar Barred from ICC Events

The ICC had asked the Bangladesh Cricket Board to exclude Javed Omar from major events after he had been eyed for some suspicious activity.

Former Bangladesh opener Javed Omar had been appointed as the manager of the women’s international team for their recent series. He went to Australia with the team during the 2020 ICC Women’s T20 World Cup and it is believed that he had passed on some team information.

His actions are being steadily investigated by the ICC which did not take legal actions against him for he was a former Bangladesh player.  His actions had been placed under constant scrutiny by the ICC officials. After enough pieces of evidence were gathered, the ICC urged the BCB to reject and exclude him in any future ICC events. 

A BCB official confirmed that by saying, ‘Yes, the ICC has informed us about the matter and we have decided not to include him in any future events. Honestly, it’s very disappointing’.

Omar has played 40 Tests and 59 ODIs for the Bangladesh national cricket team after he had his ODI debut in 1995. To learn more about the formats of cricket, visit Betwala.
