Cricket news - TNCA awaiting committee's report on allegations over corruption in TNPL

The TNPL has come under the scrutiny of the ACU

In response to allegations of corruption in the Tamil Nadu Premier League, the tournament's Governing Council noted that a Committee has been appointed to look into the matter, and they would refrain from making a statement until they thoroughly examine the allegations.

According to a report on The Indian Express, the Board of Control for Cricket in India's Anti Corruption Unit is probing links between players and bookies over alleged corruption in the league.

Meanwhile, Ajit Singh, head of the ACU, told ESPNCricinfo that the inquiry isn't directed towards any player but has to do with the person making the approach. "It is an inquiry into who has made an approach. The players have told us we have received these messages, so it is not an inquiry against the player. There were messages who is going to bat first in the match, basically seeking (match related) information. We presume it's coming from those who are interested in betting."

The Tamil Nadu Cricket Association, while not getting into specifics with its own inquiry in place, issued a statement mentioning that the tournament comes under the jurisdiction of the BCCI's amended Anti-Corruption Code and that they have a "zero-tolerance policy" towards any cricketer involved in malpractices.

"Having received information of acts that would constitute, if accurate, offences under the regulatory framework of the TNPL, the TNCA had appointed a committee to enquire into the issue and submit a report and until the Committee has been afforded an opportunity to thoroughly examine the allegations and submit their report, the TNCA is unable to make any statements on the specifics of the allegations concerning teams, players or officials," P. S. Raman, chairman, TNPL Governing Council, observed.

"The TNPL since its inception in 2016 has been covered by a robust anticorruption programme with stringent regulations that are modelled on ICC and BCCI regulations with a team of anti-corruption officials who maintain vigilance on the teams and officials.

"The TNCA would like to assure all stakeholders of the game of cricket that it has a zero tolerance policy towards any persons indulging in unethical practices which would subvert the faith of the public in the fairness of the matches. The TNCA affirms its intention to stringently penalise any persons if found guilty to the fullest extent of the law."
