The UVA T20 league has made headlines and has come in the notice of the Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) and the Punjab police after it was streamed live by FanCode, a Dream11 subsidiary. Moreover, the live scorecard of the match was also run by Sportskeeda.
According to a report in The Indian Express, the game was played in Sawara village which is 16 km from Chandigarh and the match was streamed as a ‘Uva T20 League’ match in Sri Lanka’s Badulla city, home of the Uva Province Cricket Association.
The police have got hold of two people in the case and the BCCI’s anti-corruption unit is having their own investigation.
“Our process is on. When we will know about the people involved, we will update our database. We would like to know who was involved. However, only police can take action on this. As a BCCI enforcement agency, we have no jurisdiction over it,” BCCI anti-corruption chief Ajit Singh told PTI.
The league’s teams had Sri Lankan players’ name in the squad list. Farveez Maharoof in fact, denied the involvement on social media.
