Former Zimbabwe captain Brendan Taylor has been banned from all cricket for three-and-a-half years by the ICC's anti-corruption unit for failing to report an approach from alleged corruptors without delay. In a release on Friday, the ICC said Taylor has accepted the ban, which starts from January 28. Taylor has also accepted one charge of breaching the doping code - relating to a dope test he failed in his last international game last year. He tested positive for cocaine.

The ICC release comes at the end of a week which began with Taylor's confession on Twitter of the encounter he failed to report. Taylor revealed he had been filmed using cocaine during a meeting in India with an alleged businessmen that the ICC refers to as 'Mr S', who then used that video to allegedly blackmail Taylor into an agreement to spot-fix.

Always tell someone how you feel because opportunities are lost in the blink of an eye but regret can last a lifetime.
