A Bangladesh Cricket Board (BCB) anti-corruption tribunal has banned Mohammad Ashraful for eight years and Lou Vincent three for match-fixing activities.

Ashraful, a former captain of Bangladesh and Vincent, an ex-New Zealand international, will also pay fines for breaching regulations during the Bangladesh Premier League in 2013.

"He will pay a fine of Tk 10 lakhs (one million Taka) to Bangladesh Cricket Board in accordance with article 633 of the court," Justice Khademul Islam confirmed.

"He will participate in an authorised education or rehabilitation programme organized by BCB, or the ICC, or ACC-Asian Cricket Council, if called upon to do so at anytime as from today until the expiry of the full period of ineligibility."

The news follows the England & Wales Cricket Board (ECB) handing Naveed Arif Gondal a life ban for six counts of corruption while playing for Sussex.

As well as Ashraful and Vincent, Sri Lankan leg-spinner Kaushal Lokuarachchi was also banned by the BCB.
