Bangladesh cricketer ‘involved’ in IPL spot fixing

 

Involvement of a prominent Bangladeshi player, who never played in the IPL, has emerged in the IPL spot-fixing scandal, reported CNN-IBN Online on Thursday.

Involvement of the unnamed Bangladeshi player is the latest development, though police sources said questioning the player is not possible because of jurisdiction.

Investigation moved forward at a rapid pace on Wednesday when name of the Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) President N Srinivasan’s son-in-law Gurunath Meiyappan, who is also the Team Principal and CEO of Chennai Super Kings, also surfaced – allegedly for illegal betting.

Sources also revealed that Sunil Abhichandani alias Sunil Dubai, who is considered to be running this whole racket, took Railways’ player Baburao Yadav to play in the Bangladesh Premier League (BPL).

Baburao, a cricketer-turned-bookie, was arrested over the weekend by Delhi Police.

He had represented Vidarbha in the Ranji Trophy before joining Railways in 2006.

He was suspended by Indian Railways after his arrest.
