London, Aug 14 (ANI): The Bangladesh Premier League has been brought into scanner as seven people have been charged with match fixing by the ICC, while another two have been charged for not reporting corruption in the game.
According to the BBC, the ICC revealed that the charges relate to an alleged conspiracy within the Dhaka Gladiators franchise to engage in match-fixing and spot-fixing activity.
Those charged with fixing offences have been provisionally suspended and all nine people charged have 14 days to respond to the allegations made against them, the report said.
The charges are a result of alleged incidents uncovered by the ICC's Anti-Corruption and Security Unit as the Bangladesh Cricket Board (BCB) asked the ACSU to monitor the second edition of the BPL, a Twenty20 tournament which took place in February and March this year, the report added.
The ICC said the identities of the nine charged would not be revealed until the conclusion of disciplinary proceedings, the report further said.
Former Bangladesh captain Mohammad Ashraful said he sought forgiveness for all the wrong-doings that he had committed and added that he had come clean to the ICC investigating team, co-operating with them completely. (ANI)
