Ashraful involved in match fixing?

At a situation when world cricket is going through some vulnerable periods, the next suspect of match fixing is Bangladesh's batting master, Mohammad Ashraful. The star batsman has been going through tough times on the field for the past few years already, and for the last few days he has been under ICC's investigation. 
The Anti-corruption unit of ICC has arrived in Bangladesh to investigate two matches of the second edition of Bangladesh Premier League which includes the match between Dhaka Gladiators and Chittagong Kings, followed by Dhaka Gladiators and Barisal Burners. The Gladiators were said to be the strongest team in the tournament on cards, but it raised some eye brows when they fell apart against Chittagong Kings. Keeping Mashrafe Mortaza on the sideline for the match increased the suspicion. On the other hand, Ashraful was involved in a few run outs which helped the collapse of Dhaka's batting relatively strong batting line up.
Ashraful has been questioned by ICC and he has been told to keep matters a secret. Thus, no further information regarding the matter has been received but BCB has joined hands with ICC to provide them 100 percent support regarding this matter. It has also been confirmed that superstars Mashrafe Bin Mortaza and Shakib Al Hasan are out of this issue and there is no suspicion against them. When the career of Mohammad Ashraful is going through ups and downs, if proved guilty, things may go drastically wrong for Ashraful.
