Mohammad Ashraful (Bengali: মোহাম্মদ আশরাফুল) (born 7 July 1984) is a former Bangladeshi international cricket player who has represented the Bangladesh national cricket team. A top-order batsman with a penchant for flashy strokeplay, he was also selected to represent the ACC Asia XI ODI side. Between 2007 and 2009, Ashraful captained his country in 13 Tests, and 38 One Day Internationals (ODIs) of which Bangladesh won eight. Ashraful has scored the fastest fifty in Test, ODI and Twenty20 international amongnst all Bangladeshi cricketers.[2][3][4] Ashraful is Bangladesh's second-highest run-scorer in both Tests and ODIs.[5][6] When not playing for the national team, Ashraful plays domestic cricket for the Dhaka Division cricket team in Bangladesh's domestic one-day and first-class competitions, captaining both sides on occasion. In 2014 the Bangladesh Cricket Board banned him for eight years after he was found guilty of match-fixing. The ban was later reduced to 5 years with 2 years suspended.[7]
