The ICC anti-corruption unit found 35 years old bowler found guilty in two bilateral series, the UAE played away in 2019. The first was against Zimbabwe where Qadeer Ahmad contacted corruptors and was offered 60,000 to 70,000 AED (US$ 16000 to 19,000 approx)  and then against Netherland. The ICC suspended him just at the start of the 2019 World Cup qualifiers held in Zimbabwe in October- November 2019.  The medium-pacer played 11 ODIs and 10 T20 matches while representing UAE internationally.

ICC briefed to media that Qadeer Ahmad cricketer failed to disclose any detail while contacting corruptors or with that person who played with him club cricket. ACU named that person to be Mehardeep Chhayakar known as “Mr Z” who was well known to Qadeer Ahmed while playing domestic cricket in UAE  from Ajman.

“His five-year period of ineligibility is a reflection of the seriousness of his breaches and the number of charges. He has accepted responsibility for his actions and expressed regret for those he has let down”
