A Bangladeshi player received correction requests from the women’s team on Wednesday. An audio recording of a conversation between the two players, one of which was said to be with the South African team, has surfaced and shed light on the incident.
The ongoing Women’s T20 World Cup was delayed earlier in the tournament due to an alleged spot-fixing incident involving the Bangladesh cricket team. One of the Bangladeshi players was approached by another cricketer for the same reason that he is not in the squad for the current tournament.
Bangladesh Cricket Board (BCB) chairman Nizamuddin Chowdhury also commented on the scandal, saying the player in question should immediately report the matter to the Anti-Corruption Unit (ACU) of the International Cricket Council (ICC). He said, “The ICC’s anti-corruption unit is dealing with these matters. Our players are aware of what needs to be done. If there is such behavior, they know they have to report it to the ICC ACU as per the event protocol. That’s it. It’s not a matter of BCB investigation. We can’t react to the news report or talk about the news. It’s very sensitive in nature,” the BCB chief said.
It is said that the player who is currently in Bangladesh is the middleman in South Africa who was approached to fix the defect and the person who resorted to treacherous methods. In the recording, the mediator can be heard saying: “I’m not forcing anything, you can play if you want. The fact that I told you, you can play this time or not. You choose which game to play. you want to do. You can propose a game. It’s your wish. You did well in one game, you can play another game or not. The management of the team allows you to do that.”
“No my friend, I am not involved in these things. Please don’t tell me these things. I can never. please don’t tell me these things.”
The ICC has yet to comment on the matter.
