Bangladesh ex-captain Mohammad Ashraful was ordered an eight-year ban from cricket after he was found guilty of match-fixing during the Bangladesh Premier League (BPL) as officials exclaimed. 

Recently there was a turmoil created about the match fixing incidents in BPL and according to a tribunal set by the Bangladesh Cricket Board, even ICC investigators were found guilty off it. But Ashraful’s involvement was found actively in the event of match fixing as a result of which he got the desired punishment for stinking the Spirit of the Game.

Mohammad Ashraful is a Bangladeshi international cricket player who has represented the Bangladeshi national cricket team. He was a reliable batsman for Bangladesh and played with flashy strokeplay. Ashraful captained his country 13 tests and 38 ODIs winning eight. It is indeed for the entire cricket world that a player of his class and experience was involved in such scam.

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

The International Cricket Council (ICC) had earlier interrogated 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) also visited Dhaka in the month of May 2013 to look into any type allegations of match-fixing in a couple of games in the BPL. Ashraful is found guilty of match fixing during the BPL.

Ashraful at that time had confessed that he has been guilty and had also opened a pandora’s box by naming several other names those who were included in the probe. The aftermath was that of the ICC hit nine players with allegations of match-fixing charges.It was also reported that the Dhaka Gladiators’ players were mainly involved in the offence.

It is hoped that Ashraful’s punishment will alarm the other cricketers and will force them to think twice before getting involved in such scams for the sake some money.
