No reports of match-fixing have surfaced during IPL 2020. However, one of the players reported a 'fixing approach,' which is being probed by ACU.
The report was confirmed by the Chief of BCCI’s Anti Corruption Unit (ACU) and the former DGP of Rajasthan Police, Ajit Singh, who said that an investigation had been launched and attempts are being made to nab the accused.
The name of the player and the franchise has been kept confidential, as per anti-corruption protocols.
The 13th edition of the IPL is being held in the UAE in a bio-secure environment, which has reduced the chances for people with dubious credentials approaching the player directly.
The BCCI has also signed up with a UK-based firm- Sportradar, which detects betting irregularities during IPL 2020. The company uses its Fraud Detection System (FDS), which identifies betting-related manipulation in the sport.
Since the player immediately reported the incident and didn’t indulge in any match-fixing activity, it would be incorrect to say that match-fixing activities have been reported during IPL 2020.
