Almost a month after the culmination of Tamil Nadu Premier League (TNPL) 2019, the domestic T20 tournament has come under the scanner for corruption claims.
As per a report published in ANI, the Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) has started inquiry over the alleged corruption in TNPL.
There have been reports of an unknown person approaching some of the players during the competition and the players then complained to the Anti Corruption Unit (ACU) to handle the matter.
“Yes, some of the players have approached us and based on their statements, we have initiated an enquiry. We have also recorded their statement on how and when they received messages from the unknown person. Actually, there was a WhatsApp message that was sent by some unknown people and then the players approached ACU. It can be anyone but we are sure that there is no international player involved,” Anti Corruption Unit’s (ACU) chief Ajeet Singh told ANI.
TNPL 2019 was played between July 19 to August 15 and the matches were held in Dindigul, Tirunelveli and Chennai.
Ravichandran Ashwin, Murali Vijay, Dinesh Karthik and Vijay Shankar were some of the star cricketers to have participated in this year’s tournament.
