Fake T20 tournament in India for the purpose of match-fixing!
India is regarded as the birth place of all kinds of match fixing and in cricket. This time there were allegations of organizing a fake T20 league in a village in Mohali, India. Live Streaming Apps Fancode claims that they have no involvement with the tournament. The BCCI and the Anti-Corruption Unit of the Sri Lanka Cricket Board are looking into the matter of the tournament.
Currently, various franchise-based T20 tournaments are a major source of income for gamblers. Fixing is also increasing in tournaments to earn extra income. This led to allegations against a Sri Lankan T20 tournament. However, the Sri Lanka Cricket Board has made it clear that it has no involvement with the tournament.
Fancode, the live streaming partner of the tournament, has been shaken by the Sri Lanka Cricket Board’s comments. According to various Indian dailies, the tournament was not held in Sri Lanka, but in a village in Mohali, India. The main purpose of the tournament was to earn money by winning matches and gambling from there.
Fancode was made clear that the tournament was not affiliated with the Sri Lanka Cricket Board. Fancode was assured that well-known Sri Lankan cricketers would also play in the tournament. Fancode made the deal based on that promise. So the name of Fancode Apps has also come up in the investigation.
Not only that, the name of Dream Eleven has also come up in Aksu’s investigation. Because the jersey sponsor of all the teams participating in the tournament is ‘Dream Eleven’. The BCCI and the Sri Lanka Cricket Board’s anti-corruption unit are investigating whether Dream XI and Fancode were involved in the incident.
However, Dream Eleven denied the allegations against them. One official said they had nothing to do with the fake tournament.
