Bangladesh ex-captain Mohammad Ashraful was handed an eight-year ban after he was found guilty of match-fixing during the Bangladesh Premier League (BPL) officials said.

It was reported in AFP that, “He was found guilty of all four charges and is banned from cricket for eight years,” said Khademul Islam Chowdhury, the head of a special panel set up by the Bangladesh board to investigate match-fixing allegations. In addition, he will have to pay a fine of one million taka ($12,820),” Chowdhury told reporters

The International Cricket Council (ICC) had earlier asked the BCB to look into the matter of match-fixing, and a three-member tribune was formed during the second edition of the BPL. ICC’s Anti-Corruption Security Unit (ACSU) had visited Dhaka in May 2013 to look into allegations of match-fixing in a couple of games in the BPL.

Ashraful at that time had confessed to the guilt and had also opened a pandora’s box by naming several other names in the probe. The aftermath was that of the ICC hitting nine players with match-fixing charges and it was reported that the Dhaka Gladiators’ players were involved in the offence.
