The chief of the BCCI ACU refused to name the cricketer who reported about the fixing. ‘She is India cricketer and an international cricketer so the ICC conducted an inquiry into it. The ICC warned the person who made the approach and informed us and acknowledged that the cricketer has done the right thing by reporting the approach’.
