Agarwal was also the corruptor who had contacted Shakib Al Hasan

‘Mr X’, who gave Heath Streak two bitcoins while also presenting the former Zimbabwe captain with an expensive phone for his wife, is understood to be Indian businessman Deepak Agarwal, who was banned last year until 2022 by the ICC for breaching various anti-corruption codes.

On Wednesday, the ICC banned Streak for eight years after being found guilty for five charges including failing to disclose approaches, facilitating contact with various players, and accepting gifts from a corruptor. The ICC described the corruptor as being from India and identified him only as “Mr X”.
