Lou Vincent handed match-fixing ban

1:38 pm on 19 June 2014

The former New Zealand batsman Lou Vincent and a past Bangladesh captain Mohammad Ashraful have been handed lengthy bans from all forms of cricket for their roles in a Twenty20 match-fixing scandal.

A special tribunal set up to investigate claims of corruption in the Bangladesh Premier League has banned Ashraful for eight years after he admitted match-fixing.

Vincent, who is also separately charged with match-fixing in England, was banned for three years for failing to report approaches to fix matches.

Vincent has given evidence to the International Cricket Council about his involvement in match-fixing and the 35-year-old is co-operating with the sport's ruling body.
