The BCCI ACU is spreading awareness to prevent age fraud
The Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) strengthened its measures to prevent age-fraud of cricket players. They started a helpline available at any time of day to report any form of corruption. The Anti-Corruption Unit (ACU) of the board is spreading awareness to prevent any anomalies in the sport such as the incorrect declaration of age and fake documents from junior cricketers.
The helpline numbers are displayed in dressing rooms for everyone to read. It will be placed in all facilities where the 2019-20 domestic season of the BCCI will be played. Whoever wants to file a report on suspicious activities should contact the helpline. The board vowed that they will keep the complainant’s activity confidential.
Last month, two individuals were reported after they allegedly approached a member of the India women’s cricket team for match-fixing. The anti-corruption committee filed a first information report against the reported persons behind the corrupt approaches.
The ongoing competition under the 2019-20 BCCI domestic season is the Vijay Hazare Trophy. It began on September 24 and scheduled to end on October 10, 2019. Matches of this competition are played in One Day Internationals (ODIs) format. To know more about cricket formats, read the page on Betwala.
