The tournament committee chairman of the Bangladesh Cricket Board (BCB) Akram Khan on Wednesday dismissed the alleged match-fixing claims during the final round of this season’s National Cricket League.
The accusation had been laid on the Rangpur Division-Dhaka Metropolis match where Rangpur had picked up a 102-run win to clinch their maiden NCL title.
However Akram Khan, the former Tigers skipper, informed that the inquiry body was unable to find any proof or anyone guilty for the alleged match fixing. He also added that his committee would send letters to two teams formally to acquit them from the match-fixing issue.
The officials of Khulna Division had lodged the complaint on March 19 to the BCB tournament committee. They had also submitted a recorded conversation between a Khulna official and a Dhaka Metropolis coach. Following the accusation, the board’s anti-corruption unit first investigated the matter, followed by the investigation committee.
