A player reports corrupt approach in IPL
A corrupt approach has been reported in the ongoing Indian Premier League (IPL) by a player. The name of the player has been disclosed.
The thirteenth edition of the Indian Premier League (IPL) is up and running. The cricket world has already witnessed some thrilling encounters between the teams. But along with the thrilling matches, the controversies are also a big part of it when it comes to franchise league tournaments.
Meanwhile, it has already been reported that a corrupt approach has been made to a player. The report was confirmed by BCCI’s ACU chief Ajit Singh. He also informed that they are tracking the person who made the approach.
“Yes (a player has reported approach). We are tracking him (the person who made the approach). It will take some time. The company’s Fraud Detecting System (FDS) monitors odds in the markets of over 600 bookmakers and these bookmakers are of different kinds, from different countries, different regions, including the so-called grey market or the illegal operators,” he said.
The FDS is set up to track changes in these odds and the system generates alerts when there is potentially suspicious and unusual movement. It is the first time that IPL has introduced something like this. The FDS personnel conducted their first online session with the IPL players in UAE on September 15 and followed it up with other sessions as well.
