IPL 2021: Major Update from BCCI for IPL 2021 Venues, Dates and Fans involvement

Delhi based nurse asked Indian player some confidential information about IPL.

IPL 2021: After the recently concluded IPL, a case has come-up of a Delhi-based nurse alleged to be aksing some confidential team information to the Indian players on social media. As per the reports, the nurse who was seeking information wanted to bet on IPL teams during the time of IPL.

The case took place on 30th September, which is in the middle of the tournament. The girl was identified as a nurse in a private hospital in South Delhi. The player who witnessed this incident immediately informed BCCI’s Ani Corruption Unit (ACU).

It is learned that both met online on Social Media a few years back and the cricketer was in touch with the Delhi based girl. She earlier claimed to be a fan of the cricketer and got in touch.

ACU chief confirmed the incident:

The chief of BCCI’s ACU Ajit Singh confirmed the news and said the case is now done and dusted. “The cricketer informed us during the IPL and we started our investigations back then. The matter is closed now as the girl who tried to approach was unprofessional and did not have any connections with any betting syndicate and there was no further lead found.”

If reports are to be believed, the cricketer never met the girl but had some interactions on social media platforms. The ACU took all the necessary details from the cricketer and later questioned the women too.

“The cricketer clarified that he did not know much about her, where she lived and worked. During an online interaction, the woman told him that she wanted to bet and for that she wanted to know about the playing XI of the team and other details.”

The matter came to the news a month later another cricketer contacted BCCI’s ACU for the same. The other cricketer was also approached on social media for some confidential information. Finding it suspicious, the cricketer informed the regulating bodies and the team management about the same.

BCCI’s Anti Corruption Unit (ACU) organized some seminars before the start of IPL 2020 to make the cricketers alert about the social media approach by such peoples claiming to be fans or well-wishers. IPL has been defamed by the spot-fixing scandal back in 2013 that resulted in the two years ban on Chennai Super Kings and Rajasthan Royals.
