Nine individuals have been charged with various offences allegedly committed in violation of the Bangladesh Cricket Board's anti-corruption code during the 2013 Bangladesh Premier League.

According to sources it is also revealed that a Sri lankan cricketer is also accused of match fixing at the BPL.

The charges, which followed an investigation carried out by the ICC's Anti-Corruption and Security Unit , relate to an alleged conspiracy within the Dhaka Gladiators franchise to engage in match-fixing and spot-fixing during the tournament, as well as failures by individuals to report approaches made to them to be involved in the conspiracy.
