The former Bangladesh cricket international Shariful Haque has been indefinitely banned for spot-fixing.
The Bangladesh Cricket Board banned Haque after an inquiry found the 36-year-old approached national player Mashrafe Mortaza before the first edition of the Bangladesh Premier League earlier this year to arrange spot-fixing.
Haque, who played his only international match for Bangladesh against India in 1998, denies the charges, calling them "baseless and false."
The BCB set up an inquiry after Mortaza, a former national captain, alleged that Haque offered him percentages of the winnings from spot-betting in return for advanced information on aspects of BPL matches.
The allegations, coupled with the arrest of a Pakistani national on separate spot-fixing charges, marred the BPL, the Bangladeshi answer to India's high-octane Twenty20 cricket tournament.
Non-payment of fees to some overseas players also overshadowed the event.
