3. Shane Warne

Regarded as the best bowler ever, Shane Warne, the 'legend', got a one-year ban in 2003. Warne had taken one tablet of Moduretic ("the liquid tablet"), and a committee set up by the Cricket Board of Australia (a.k.a. Cricket Australia) observed that to be a break of the Board's medication policy, giving him a one-year ban from organized cricket.

2. Herschelle Gibbs

The most aggressive South African opener was engaged with the infamous Hansie Cronje match-settling embarrassment, and because of his contribution, he got a six-month ban. Hansie Cronje had offered Gibbs $15,000 to get out for "under 20", and he confessed to accepting his offer.

1. Mohammed Amir

Mohammed Amir, Pakistan's quick bowler, was implicated in the infamous match-fixing saga of 2010 involving the Pakistan Cricket Team on their tour of England. He was convicted along with senior cricketer Mohammed Asif and then captain of the Pakistan team Salman Bhatt. Members of the media had gathered proof that Amir had agreed to deliberately bowl no-balls in test matches in exchange for payment from a betting syndicate. Eventually, the authorities got involved, and Amir received a five-year ban from all forms of cricket from the ICC.
