Fixing scandals that rocked the Tamil Nadu Premier League and Karnataka Premier League: Sourav Ganguly, the former captain of Team India and current chairman of the Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI), made a big disclosure on Sunday about the Syed Mushtaq Ali T20 tournament. Ganguly said that a bookie had approached a player during the current Syed Mushtaq Ali T20 tournament. Which has been reported by the Board's Anti-Corruption Unit (ACU). Ganguly said in the press conference after BCCI's AGM, “Even in Syed Mushtaq, a player was approached. I was told about it but I do not know his name. But the offer was made and the player reported it. '
The former captain said that the biggest problem is what the players do after the offer made to the bookie. He said, 'Being offered is not the problem, it is not wrong. What is wrong is what happens after the offer. ”Ganguly revealed this when he was asked about the fixing case in the Tamil Nadu Premier League (TPL) and the Karnataka Premier League (KPL). Some players like Indian international player Abhimanyu Mithun are also playing in the Syed Mushtaq Ali tournament. He is under investigation in the KPL spot-fixing case.
Ganguly said, “It is very difficult for the board to stop the tournament because someone has offered.” But at the same time admitted that in some states it has reached the next level. We faced it in TNPL and KPL. We also talked to the respective states. KPL is still stalled until it is cleared. '
Apart from this, Ganguly also targeted the selection committee headed by MSK Prasad. Please tell that now the tenure of the selection committee headed by MSK Prasad is going to end. In such a situation, Ganguly said that no work can be done beyond the selection tenure. The selection committee headed by MSK Prasad has completed four years and now these officials will not have the right to select the Indian team. (With language input)
