Wednesday, 19 June 2013 - 8:01



Nadir Shah, the banned Bangladesh umpire, has submitted a mercy plea to the BCB to reduce the term of his suspension.


He was given a 10-year ban after a BCB investigation found him guilty of corruption after an Indian TV channel's sting operation in 2012


He has submitted a mercy letter addressing the board president Nazmul Hassan, and it has been received by the acting CEO Nizamuddin Ahmed.


Shah said that he has asked to lift the ban that the cricket board has issued against him as he has already served a year of it.


The sting claimed to have "exposed" several first-class umpires from Bangladesh, Sri Lanka and Pakistan who were allegedly willing to give decisions favouring players for a fee.
