Unlike, another season, this season of IPL is extraordinary. The matches are being played in the absence of the fans and crowd who used to cheer or support their respective teams.
This all, as a consequence of this COVID situation. And most of the industries have ceased their operations as they went down the steep road of the financial crisis.
INVESTIGATION ON THE REPORT
IPL has already started and until now it is working out pretty well. However, one of the players, who is playing the current season, has filed a corrupt approach. This has put the ACU (a.k.a Anti-Corruption Unit) on high alert.
This season of IPL took place in UAE in a bio-secure environment. In order to, maintain safety and reduce the chance of getting infected. Moreover, this has also cut down the chances of persons with suspicious thoughts approaching the player directly.
Although, the concern sustains greatly as it can also be accomplished through social media networks. Ajit Singh, the chief of ACU has ascertained the formation of PTI.
He stated that a player has filed an approach, Ajit Singh validated.
And when asked if the accused person is caught then he responded that they are hunting for the person and it’ll take a while. However, the name of the player whether Indian or overseas has not been disclosed for privacy purposes according to the protocols.
As the cricketers and other staff remain in the bio-bubble environment, the team looks highly towards the probable online corrupt ways.
Nearly, all the players, especially youngsters are active on social media platforms whether it be Instagram or Twitter. These are the programs where people deceive to be companions when in reality they are not.
BCCI had stated that all the cricketers including overseas had attended several anti-corruption courses. And the stated that the good thing was the player who had been approached had already sensed the foul stench.
He became dubious and shortly he confronted this with the ACU. And all the players including the youngsters are well familiar with the protocols that need to be followed in such case, they said.
BCCI and Sportradar
Moreover, BCCI has collaborated with Sportradar, an English company which provides its morality service to prohibit such betting and corrupted activities as the IPL progresses with the assistance of their Fraud Detection System.
