A Tennis Integrity Unit investigation concluded Kilani conspired with a third party to manipulate the outcome of matches played at an ITF Futures tournament in Egypt in August 2016. In addition to the match-fixing offenses, Kilani was also found to have failed to fully co-operate with a TIU investigation into the corruption allegations against him.

Kilani is prohibited from playing in or attending any tennis event authorized or sanctioned by the governing bodies of tennis for a period of seven years, effective June 25th, 2020.
