The 13th edition of the IPL, which is being played in the biosafety environment in the United Arab Emirates (UAE), has also seen a cloud of fixing, which has also been confirmed by the Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI). An external agent is believed to have approached the player playing in the IPL for fixing. The name of this player and his team has been kept secret due to confidential process in such cases. The case has been confirmed by the BCCI’s Anti-Corruption Unit (ACU). ACU chief Ajit Singh has said that an unknown man in the IPL had tried to contact an unknown man about fixing. An attempt is being made to locate that agent.

It is noteworthy that during the IPL, ACU is giving online counseling sessions to the players to make the game more transparent. All protocols have also been given to players playing IPL. The IPL, however, is being played in a biosafety environment where no one can directly contact a player, but players can be contacted due to the online platform. The BCCI has tied up with UK company ‘Sport Radar’ to curb fixing and betting in the IPL which will monitor corrupt activities through an investigation system.

Under the agreement, ‘Sport Radar’ will work closely with ACU for all IPL matches and will try to curb corruption through its own investigative system. Andreas Kranik, managing director of the ‘Sport Radar’ Integrity Service, said that we would help curb corruption in the tournament. So far the first such case has come to light where the player has been contacted. Although the player immediately informed the ACU about this, but the BCCI has become fully alert and the ACU has stepped up its investigation.
