Match-Fixing? 5 Stumpings, 3 Runouts In One Innings

Ajman All Stars fixing

With a total of 136 set on the scoreboard for victory, the Warriors were bowled out for a paltry 46 as their batsmen lost wickets at regular intervals.

The ICC Anti-Corruption Unit has launched an investigation after a video of a cricket match - at the Ajman All Stars League T20 tournament - showing most players of the same team either getting run out or stumped went viral on social media.

Cricket has always been in the spotlight when it comes to betting scandals, whether it be South African Hansie Cronje's match fixing in April 2000, or the case of three Pakistani players colluding to play no balls against England in the 2010 test match at Lords. The league had to be called off after just two days since the authorities did not permit it to continue playing on the ground.

The league included a few former global players and a number of expatriates from South Asian countries.

"But when I reached there I realised it was just an amateur-level event which had no match referee, ICC anti-corruption representative or even scorers". The game has given cricket another black-eye in the war it is losing against corruption and match-fixing.

The video highlighted many comical dismissals.

Former Pakistan captain Salman Butt has suffered many tenacious and hard moments in his worldwide cricket career. But any cricket that takes place there has to be approved by the local cricket council.

The National newspaper reported the Emirates Cricket Board have distanced themselves from the T20 league which is the subject of an International Cricket Council anti-corruption probe.

It is believed Neo Sports, the league's broadcaster, is also being questioned by the ICC.
