Former Bangladesh captain Mohammed Ashraful suspended for alleged fixing in BPL 

 Today Ashraful confessed that he was involved in fixing. The International Cricket Council’s Anti-Corruption and Security Unit (ACSU) has been probing allegations of match-fixing during the Bangladesh Premier League (BPL), a Twenty20 competition. Bangladesh Cricket Board president Nazmul Hassan said “As Ashraful has confessed his involvement in fixing to the ACSU team, so he should not be allowed to play any level of cricket until we get a full report of the investigation”. “I have spoken with Ashraful, he told me that he has confessed everything to the ASCU,” Nazmul Hassan said, although he added that the batsman had not disclosed details to him.Hassan made Tuesday’s announcement during a meeting of the Bangladesh Cricket Board (BCB) in the capital Dhaka called to deal with the allegations, which have been widely reported in local media. The alleged fixing involved a match between the Dhaka Gladiators and the Chittagong Kings during the second edition of the BPL, BCB spokesman Jalal Yunus has told AFP. Local media have reported that 28-year-old Gladiators star Ashraful was allegedly paid about one million taka ($12,800) to lose the February 2 match, but the cheque he was given, later bounced.The big-hitting batsman was also allegedly involved in fixing another match 10 days later, against the Barisal Burners.
