The Bangladesh Cricket Board will launch an investigation committee to probe the alleged match-fixing in the National Cricket League, said BCB president Nazmul Hasan on Saturday. BCB is expected to take immediate actions in this regard as they maintained zero tolerance in previous cases related with match-fixing corruptions. ‘We would form an investigation committee tomorrow [Sunday],’ Nazmul told reporters on Saturday.
‘Though there is no written complaint by the match referee,’ said Nazmul.
‘But we can neither sit down about it nor take it lightly. ‘After the investigation is over, the disciplinary committee will take action on it,’ he said.
Rangpur Division won their maiden title in NCL, country’s traditional first-class tournament, after defeating Dhaka Metropolis by 102 runs at BKSP.
Khulna Division were among the front-runners in the championships and could have won it had Rangpur failed to earn an outright win in that match, few minutes before the curtain was pulled down of the longer-version tournament at BKSP-2 on March 12.
Khulna officials lodged a formal complaint on March 19, claiming that the match was fixed.
In support to their claim Khulna officials provided evidences to BCB’s tournament committee and disciplinary committee including a 35-minute recorded conversation between their officials and Dhaka Metro coach Hannan Sarkar.
