Finally all the accused of the match fixing scandal are being sentenced to what they deserve.  Earlier in the scheme of things, Mohammad Ashraful has been banned for 8 years (here years suspended) by the Bangladesh Premier League’s Anti Corruption Unit.

Also the former  New Zealand batsman , Lou Vincent   , has been handed a ban of 3 years and the Sri Lankan all rounder , Kaushal Lokuarachchi has been handed a ban of 18 months. They were accused of not reporting the fact that they were approached by the bookies. Earlier in February, Vincent admitted that he did not report him being approached by a bookie. Vincent is also separately charged with match fixing in England.

Several questions will surely be raised over the franchise cricket as the managing director of the Dhaka Gladiator , Shihab Chowdhury has been banned for ten years (three years suspended) for fixing.  Chowdhury  has been found guilty of fixing the match against  Chittagong , held on 2nd February 2013. He has been charged according to article 6.2 and 6.5 and thus cannot in any cricketing events. He will be paying 20 lakhs Bangladeshi currency to the Board.

Justice Khademul Islam, the convenor of the three-member probe committee, read out the sentences to the media on Wednesday. Former cricketer Shakil Kasem and Ajmalul Hossain QC,are  the other two committee members.

Khademul added that Ashraful cannot take part in any authorised  cricket for atleast 5 years  and after 5 years , his ban may be lifted if he takes part in any anti corruption  education or rehabiliatation programme under any recognised body of ICC.

Vincent too was charged under the same articles as Chowdhury, whiloe Lokuarachchi was charged under article 2.4.2. Article 2.4.2  is charged on a player if a player does not report him being asked to fix a match.

But all the punished players and personals can appeal to Sheikh Sohel, who is the chairman of disciplinary committee of the Bangladesh Cricket Board.
