Cricinfo website has reported that Bangladesh Premier League (BPL) tribunal will give their verdict on alleged spot fixing and match fixing on 26th and 27th February.
This tribunal was formed last year when it was surfaced that some matches of Bangladesh Premier League were fixed, and spot fixing also occurred. Former national cricketer and captain of national team Mohammad Ashraful admitted his wrongdoings. He also alleged that some other top cricketers and team officials were also involved. But they denied the allegation.
Bangladesh Cricket Board has an anticorruption code to fight against match fixing. They invited ACSU of ICC to investigate the matter. Some ACSU officials visited and interrogated some cricketers and officials, Rapid Action Battalion (RAB) also helped them.
The hearing ends on Thursday and after the final arguments final verdict will be announced. Now a temporary ban on cricketer Ashraful is imposed.
BPL was a T-20 league where a lot of money was invested by the teams. But experts say, Bangladesh’s market is not big enough for such investment and as a result the teams relied on match and spot fixing for money.
