Domestic matches in Bangladesh often throw unrealistic results that provokes allegations of match-fixing.

In 2017, a bowler received 10 years of suspension for delivering successively 13 wides and three no-balls to concede 92 runs in the first over and therefore deliberately lost the match stating it was a kind of protest against some biased match officials.
