Instances of players involved in foul activities in the game of cricket come to light every now and then. While some face life bans, others serve their terms and return to contribute to the game. Although this has always been a moot point whether such players should be allowed to make a comeback or not, it eventually boils down to the extent of involvement in the activity. Here at The SportsRush we look at 5 Cricketers who returned to play after facing a ban
1) Mohammad Ashraful
At the early age of seventeen Bangladesh fans called him their answer to ‘Sachin Tendulkar’. Such early praise! Ashraful is undoubtedly talented, but his records never reflected it. Before he could do anything significant he got involved in spot fixing controversy in 2013, which he admitted to do in the BPL (Bangladesh Premier League). He was allegedly paid $12,800 for losing a match in the second edition of BPL.
Ashraful got banned for 8 years from all forms of cricket which was later reduced to 3 years. His has completed his term recently and will soon return to domestic cricket.
