There was spot-fixing in Nepal T20 League: CIB

KATHMANDU: The Central Investigation Bureau (CIB) of Nepal Police concluded that there was spot-fixing in the Nepal T20 League concluded last week.

CIB Chief Uttam Raj Subedi said that preparations are underway to file cases against some people.

“They can be anyone, players, managers and officials,” AIG Subedi said.

He said that the probe report pertaining to the issue will be made public on Monday.

“We were planning to make the report public on Sunday. But the government has announced a public holiday on that day. That is why the report will be made public on Monday,” Subedi said.

Earlier, commentator Sachin Timilsena had left the tournament saying that there was an approach of spot-fixing in the Nepal T20 League.

The tournament dragged into controversy after former national cricket team captain Gyanendra Malla said that one of his players was approached for fixing.

Officials of the Indian company Seven Three Sports, which had got the responsibility of organising the tournament, left for home in the middle of the tournament.

All the players of the six teams participating in the tournament have not got the salary.

According to a player, the Cricket Association of Nepal has expressed its commitment to provide them the salary within six months.

The tournament was dragged into controversy from the beginning after the Seven Three Sports was allowed to host the tournament without a tender process.

The CIB has kept the names of the people involved in the spot fixing secret.

After the suspicion of fixing, the anti-corruption committee of the ICC has also arrived in Nepal.
