Mumbai cricketer Hiken Shah has been suspended by the Board of Control for Cricket in India's (BCCI) due to corruption.
Mumbai's Hiken Shah has been found guilty of breaching the Board of Control for Cricket in India's (BCCI) Anti-Corruption Code and suspended from all forms of cricket.
The 30-year-old batsman was found guilty of making a corrupt approach to a first-class cricketer - the team-mate in question is also a member of an IPL team.
The BCCI also confirmed in a statement that Shah's suspension from all affiliated cricket competitions would stand until its disciplinary committee passes "appropriate orders".
BCCI president Jagmohan Dalmiya said in the statement: "BCCI has zero tolerance for corruption in the game of cricket.
"We have and we will take swift action against such incidents to set a precedent and control the menace of corruption in the game.
"While placing the player under suspension, I have referred the matter to the disciplinary committee of the BCCI to take further action against the player involved."
Honorary secretary Anurag Thakur added: "This particular incident demonstrates that BCCI's education policy against corruption is showing results, as the player approached was vigilant enough to report the matter to the ACU [Anti-Corruption Unit] of the BCCI.
"Having said that, the fight against corruption is an ongoing battle and we will not leave any stone unturned. BCCI is committed to keep cricket corruption-free."
