A Bangladesh international cricket umpire has been been banned for ten years for corruption.

The Bangladesh Cricket Board has banned Nadir Shah, who umpired in 40 international one-dayers three Twenty20 matches, including games involving New Zealand between 2006-11.

In October, the Hindi-language news channel India TV showed footage of Shah and other officials from Sri Lanka, Bangladesh and Pakistan allegedly negotiating deals with under-cover reporters to affect the outcome of matches.
