The International Cricket Council (ICC) on Tuesday charged eight cricket players and officials with violating anti-corruption laws in a match-fixing probe at the Abu Dhabi T10 event.
“The ICC has charged the Emirates Cricket Board (ECB) with eight players and officials involved in the T10 league for various breaches of the ECB’s Anti-Corruption Code,” cricket’s governing body said in a statement. The indictment has been filed. The ICC said that ‘the allegations relate to the Abu Dhabi T10 Cricket League in 2021 and attempts to tamper with matches in the tournament which were called off’. Bangladesh player Nasir Hussain and team co-owners Krishnan Kumar Chowdhury and Parag Singhvi are also accused. Several allegations against the group include match-fixing, offering money to players to engage in corruption and failure to cooperate with ICC investigations. Six people, including Chaudhary and Singhvi, have been provisionally suspended for their alleged conduct and given two weeks to respond.
