Abu Dhabi T10 league hit with yet another match fixing controversy from Indian origin player

The Abu Dhabi T10 league has landed itself in another match-fixing controversy. A UAE player of Indian origin, Sandy Singh, was suspended from the league due to his contacts with suspicious persons.

Abu Dhabi T10 league has had previous reports of such instances as well. It is rumored that the owners of the franchises have links with influential match-fixing rings. ------------------------------

Sandy was suspended and sent back from the bio-secure bubble by the authorities after finding proof of his links with suspicious people. Sandy did not play even a single match as there were doubts about his involvement in match-fixing.

According to reports, the players involved in the Abu Dhabi T10 League had a meeting with the ICC’s Anti-Corruption Unit before the start of the tournament. All the players were informed regarding the protocols. The authorities showed the players pictures of suspicious people and directed the players to stay away from them. ------------------------------

Sandy was known to be in contact with them, and his bat was even sponsored by the said elements. Sandy failed to report his links to the Anti-Corruption Unit which resulted in the ban.

Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) is also monitoring the situation as many Pakistani cricketers are also participating in the league. As per reports, the board is closely monitoring the players and is looking to avoid any such situation that can embarrass the nation.
