The International Cricket Council (ICC) and the Bangladesh Cricket Board (BCB) have confirmed their decision to appeal the verdict given by the BCB’s Anti-Corruption Tribunal for the disciplinary proceedings pertaining to the Bangladesh Premier League (BPL) 2013.

The BCB’s Anti-Corruption Code, which governs these proceedings, provides for a two-stage appeal process.  The first stage is an appeal to the Chairman of the BCB’s Disciplinary Panel. The second stage, if necessary, is an appeal to the Court of Arbitration for Sport in Switzerland, the ICC informed on its website.

The ICC expressed its disappointment with the Anti-Corruption Tribunal’s decision. “The ICC and the BCB can confirm that we have received the full written decision from the Anti-Corruption Tribunal. We are extremely disappointed at the outcome of the proceedings, and the reasons given by the Tribunal for its decision has done nothing to address our concerns,” said an ICC spokesperson.

“In the ICC’s view, clear and compelling evidence of corruption by a number of individuals have not been taken into account properly.  We believe that we have very strong grounds on which we can base our appeal.  The sport would not be sending the right message if it does not challenge what, in our opinion, are incorrect findings,” added the spokesperson.
