The ICC are investigating UAE cricket game for match fixing

ICC launches investigation over 'irregular activities' in private UAE league Match-fixing? ICC probes All Stars T20 League, seeks information [Video]
| 01 February, 2018, 01:15

"The Emirates Cricket Board (ECB) is aware that the ICC Anti-Corruption Unit (ACU) is now investigating the All Stars T20 Ajman, that took place in Ajman, UAE, recently".

Dubai Star was chasing a modest total of 136 against the Sharjah Warriors but could only manage 46 as the wickets tumbled freely in scenes of high farce.

The tournament was reportedly called off after its first day after authorities refused to allow further use of the ground - and after footage of the collapse went viral, the ICC stepped in and opened an investigation.

The cricket match has come under the spotlight of International Cricket Council's (ICC) Anti-Corruption Unit (ACU) for alleged "irregular activities".

It has now emerged that Butt, who was banned from cricket for five years and served time in prison following the Lord's spot-fixing scandal of 2010, played two matches in the All-Stars tournament despite it being unrecognised by the local Emirates Cricket Board.


The investigations into the matter started after a video showing the batsmen's lack of intent went viral on social media.

The league included a few former global players and a number of expatriates from South Asian countries. Lots of batsmen were seen charging down the wicket, and farcial of acting to make it back to the crease, while run-outs also occurred in a similar fashion.

The National newspaper reported the Emirates Cricket Board have distanced themselves from the T20 league which is the subject of an International Cricket Council anti-corruption probe.

"We have a zero tolerance policy towards corruption and are cooperating with the ICC in their ongoing investigation", Mulk added.

The Ajman Cricket Council (ACC) has suspended all matches at the Ajman Oval.
