BCCI to probe WC winner's bookie link, England star fit for the fourth Test and more - Cricket News Today, 28th August 2018
#2 BCCI to probe Indian cricketer's alleged link with bookie
Following a slew of claims made by chief investigator BB Misra, the BCCI's Committee of Administrators has ordered a fresh probe. According to CoA chief Vinod Rai, the board's Anti-Corruption Unit has been instructed to look into the matter.
Rai stated, "We have read the reports, looked into them and will take the necessary steps. As the board doesn’t have any record or evidence about the particular findings, as it was not given to the board and which only the court has access to, we will ask the court to provide them. Also, we have informed the anti-corruption unit chief and he will take further steps after studying the events."
During last week, reports emerged of a World Cup winning Indian player's alleged link with a bookie in 2008/09. Misra, who served as the chief investigator of the 2013 IPL spot-fixing scandal, cited time constraints for not pursuing the lead further.
