Old habits die hard; IPL again in betting trap

Cricket bat and ball

By Newsgram Staff Writer

A Rajasthan Royals’ cricketer followed a zero tolerance attitude towards betting, after he was approached a month ago for fixing 2015 Indian Premier League (IPL) matches, the team said on Friday.

The Mumbai-based Royals’ player was approached by his Ranji Trophy teammate “with an offer of money, if he followed a pre-decided pattern of play”.

The player refused the offer and informed his team management, who in turn reported the matter to the Board of Control for Cricket in India’s (BCCI) Anti-Corruption and Security Unit (ACSU).

“Over a month ago, a player from Rajasthan Royals was approached inappropriately by a player (who was not part of the IPL) in connection with the IPL 2015 matches. Maintaining high standards of integrity, the player informed the team management of this inappropriate approach,” said Royals chief executive officer (CEO) Raghu Iyer.

In keeping with applicable IPL regulations, Rajasthan Royals management immediately reported the incident to the ACSU of the BCCI.
Rajasthan Royals will continue to provide full support and assistance to the BCCI to ensure that the game of cricket is played in the right spirit.
