Former Captain of Bangladesh Mohammad Ashraful on 18 June 2014 was banned for eight years by the disciplinary panel set up by the Bangladesh Cricket Board.
He was found guilty on four charges of fixing matches in Bangladesh Premier League of 2013. Ashraful has also been ordered to pay a fine of one million taka (12280 US dollar).
The 29-year-old was under suspension since June 2013 after he admitted to the ICC's Anti-Corruption and Security Unit that he had indulged in fixing BPL matches.
In addition to Ashraful, the tribunal also banned ex-New Zealand batsman Lou Vincent for three years for not informing authorities he was approached to fix BPL matches and Sri Lanka's Kaushal Lokuarachchi for 18 months for the same offence.
