ICC Official: Most of the ongoing fixing cases are linked to Indians.
ICC has currently investigated all the reported cases of fixing. They said most of the corruptors belongs to India.
The investigation started from the deep root when last week Legendary Sri Lankan player Sanath Jayasuriya charged for violating ICC’s anti-corruption code. He is the first high profile player from Island to charge for this. But he only punished because of not contributing to the ICC investigation unit.
The ICC investigation Unit shared information that Srilankan and England cricketers have link with corruptors. They are involved in a limited-overs match.
In question by ESPN Cricinfo, Alex Marshall ICC General manager said that active corruptors in Srilanka belong to local and Indian corruptors but in international cricket, it mostly belongs to Indian.
Marshall also said that in India there is no fixing law, so corruptors do fixing easily.
He added that according to the initial report no Indian cricketers have link with them but the main problem is an organizer who is communication medium between them.
Alex said after the statement from Danish Kaneria that he had taken money from Indian bookie. This alarmed about a serious situation.
Marshall believed that most of the corruptors in ICC are of Indian origin.
He also warned that the corruptors not only attack international matches or tournaments now they also looked for local cricket.
Alex added there is no legal action against corruptors in India. They only give $300 to players to underperform in the match and there is no legal action.
He said they strictly observe 10-20 active-corruptors. And six corruptors are confirmed.
Srilankan First country to make laws against fixing
He said Srilanka is the first nation that makes a law against these activities and they are successful in controlling corruption.
Marshall said we have to control these otherwise two mega-event which India has to do hosting the T20 world cup in 2021 and Worldcup in 2023 will be affected by bookies.
Criminalizing fixing in India would be a game-changer.
Shakib ul Hassan banned for 2 years. Five UAE players banned by the ICC investigation unit.
Due to these corruptors, many players lost their name, fame, money, and career. Muhammad Amir also one of these players but they come back after completing his punishment. But Muhammad Salman and Asif still not come-back in their field.
Many Indian Players also face this problem and lost everything.
