Disgraced Bangladesh captain Mohammad Ashraful has announced that he has appealed against the eight-year ban that was handed to him after he admitted to being involved in a match-fixing scandal during the 2013 edition of the Bangladesh Premier League (BPL).
“My lawyer has sent the appeal papers to the disciplinary committee’s chief,” Ashraful said. “I want to return to cricket before my eight-year ban is up. That’s why I have made the appeal.”
The Dhaka Gladiators’ managing director, Shihab Chowdhury, who was banned for 10 years, also submitted an appeal in an attempt to get his ban reduced.
