The Central Bureau of Investigation (CBI) has concluded that there is spot fixing in the T20 cricket league.
The CBI was investigating after getting the news about spot fixing in the league. CBI spokesperson and SP Sanjay Singh Thapa informed that the investigation led by the DSP concluded that there was spot fixing. He also said that he is preparing to publish a report about this on Monday.
He said that some officials in managerial roles, some players and some other people were involved in this. However, he said that only when the matter is made public. The league, which ended on January 28, was controversial from the start. After suspicion of spot fixing in the league, the CBI investigated. According to the investigation, some Nepali and foreign players may be involved. CBI has not made this public yet.
The Cricket Association of Nepal (CAN) gave the entire right to organize the Nepal T-20 League to the Indian company Seven Three Sports. The league became controversial when an Indian company was given project rights without a tender. 1X Bat is the main sponsor of the often-shifted league. This company is a subsidiary of 1xBet which offers betting. There were suspicions of betting and spot fixing, as 1X Bet.com was opened directly in the browser.
Jatin Aluwalia, the owner of Seven Three Sports, reached India after the same league became controversial. The CBI’s investigation has raised several questions about the integrity of the league and the involvement of those in managerial positions. The publication of the CBI’s report on Monday will provide more information and clarity on the matter. The Cricket Association of Nepal and the Indian company Seven Three Sports will also have to respond to the findings of the CBI’s investigation.
