Ashraful, who admitted to corrupt practices in Bangladesh Premier League, is expected to return to domestic cricket on August 13 this year, having served his ban, as per the decision of the ICC tribunal.

"It is not going to be very easy for me. From August 13, the day my ban is supposed to officially end, a new battle will begin. That is to regain the trust of the people. If you ask me, I am happy that I could again play atleast club cricket. But I am expecting to resume my first-class career for Dhaka Metropolitan," Ashraful, now 32, said during an interaction.
     
But Ashraful knows and has accepted the fact that there will be trust issues once he is back in the side.
     
"There is no doubt in my mind that there will be a distinct lack of trust when I make a comeback. The dressing room might not be as welcoming as it should be and rightly so. I have made a mistake and winning the trust is also a part of my road to redemption,” he added.
