Is BCCI’s Anti-Corruption Unit weighed down by rising state-based T20 leagues?While the BCCI has continued the practice of maintaining dedicated integrity officers for each franchise in IPL, it has been unable to follow the practice in state T20 leagues.advertisement Next Rasesh Mandani MumbaiSeptember 17, 2019UPDATED: September 17, 2019 21:43 IST BCCI’s anti-corruption unit is investigating cases of alleged match-fixing in TNPL (Tamil Nadu Premier League Photo)HIGHLIGHTSBCCI has initiated inquiry over alleged corruption in Tamil Nadu Premier LeagueThere have been reports of fixers approaching some players in TNPLBCCI’s Anti-Corruption Unit (ACU) keeps a watch on all state-based T20 leagues and the IPLOver half-a-dozen corrupt approaches have been made to cricketers during the course of this season’s Tamil Nadu Premier League (TNPL). The Board of Control for Cricket in India’s Anti-Corruption Unit (ACU) as well as Tamil Nadu Cricket Association (TNCA) are inquiring into the matter.But TNPL, best known for unearthing talent for IPL, is suddenly facing credibility crisis. Although BCCI’s ACSU itself monitored proceedings this year; a first in the league’s four year old history. Which begs the question, does the BCCI ACSU has too much on its plate with more and more state units formulating their own T20 leagues?. Tamil Nadu, Karnataka, Saurashtra and Mumbai Cricket Associations have their T20 leagues going and more are in the pipeline.Former anti-corruption unit chief of ICC, Ravi Sawani thinks so. “BCCI doesn’t have full time employability for these kinds of leagues nor the supervisory resource. Maybe in future they will look at it,” Sawani told India Today.Currently the BCCI’s anti-corruption wing, headed by former Rajasthan DGP Ajit Singh Shekhawat, is eight members strong. The ACU chief has sought five to six more intelligence officers and some additional staff but the recruitment is still in the works.As a result, the BCCI’s ACU has been unable to keep a designated officer with each franchise, as has been the practice in the past.”Till last year we were following a system where we had dedicated integrity officers for each team in TNPL. Officers used to travel with the team, stay with them, develop rapport, build confidence so that they can share anything that is amiss in the system. For some reason that has been stopped,” Sawani said.advertisementSawani’s private security company was employed by the TNPL as well as Karnataka Premier League (KPL) until the BCCI decided to bring all anti-corruption cricket operations, including IPL, under its ACU’s purview, last year. The IPL was earlier overseen by ICC’s anti-corruption unit.The decision taken by BCCI’s Committee of Administrators (CoA) was driven by recommendations of Justice Mudgal committee as well as Lodha committee which discouraged use of ICC’s anti-corruption wing for IPL. The committee’s argument was the ICC’s anti-corruption officers would report to the ICC and not BCCI.While the BCCI continued the practice of maintaining dedicated integrity officers for each franchise in IPL, it has been unable to follow the practice in state T20 leagues.BCCI’s ACU Chief Ajit Singh however, does not agree the operational change would make a difference. “We had four officers there who covered each and every game and stayed in the team hotels. So it’s not just manpower that is required. You have to develop information sources, develop confidence and take exemplary action where required,” Singh told India Today.The other handicap in having fixed integrity officers for state leagues revolves around budgeting. “The fact is even the franchisees are operating on low budget. We can’t have dedicated officer for each team like IPL.”The BCCI ACU is spread out during the competition,” TNPL Governing Council Chairman PS Raman clarified.Sheer manpower may not clinch BCCI its anti-corruption drive but with more and more of its state units exploring the T20 league idea to generate revenue, the susceptibility quotient as well as pressure on its ACU continues to rise.For sports news, updates, live scores and cricket fixtures, log on to indiatoday.in/sports.

Delph called off a proposed moved to the Etihad Stadium last weekend and issued a statement in which he insisted: “I’m not leaving. I’m staying at the football club and I can’t wait for the start of the season and captaining this great football club.” But the 25-year-old had a change of heart on Friday and, after completing a medical at City, he prepared to fly to Australia to join his new team-mates on their pre-season tour. In a statement issued to Press Association Sport, Delph maintained his initial decision to stay at Villa was an emotional rather than career decision and quickly became one he began to regret. Delph said: ” My decision to stay initially was purely based on the emotion and feelings that I hold for the club and the people there that I would be walking away from – rather than looking at the football opportunity that had been placed in front of me. “I’ve experienced some incredible low times in my career with injuries and at one point even questioned whether I would even return to Premiership level. Despite that, I’ve always been 100 per cent committed to improving my game and developing as a player and a person. “As a kid watching the game on TV and then as a young footballer you dream about testing yourself against the best in the world, to compete for major trophies and to play in the Champions League. I’ve proved that I can play at the very top level with England and believe I owe it to myself to take the challenge of playing for one of the biggest clubs in the world in Manchester City.” Delph added that he was “immensely proud” to have been granted the honour of wearing the captain’s armband by Villa boss Tim Sherwood earlier this season – but he is set to a face a stormy reception on his first trip back to Villa Park. In a further twist, Delph later cited the opinions of Micah Richards – who left City to go in the opposite direction to Villa last month – as one of the reasons for his change of heart. In an interview on City’s official website, Delph said: “I spoke with Joe Hart when I was with him for England and he was always been telling me how the club has come on and what City are trying to achieve – and Micah Richards told me that as far as he is concerned, this is the best club in the world and he had the time of his life here.” Former Villa striker Stan Collymore told talkSport’s Drive programme shortly before the deal was officially confirmed: “He (Delph) said twice now that he wants to stay at the club – nobody put a gun to his head. Fabian Delph has defended his decision to sign a five-year deal with Manchester City less than a week after publicly committing his future to Aston Villa. Press Association “He said twice that he believes Villa is a great club that he wants to stay at…if he signs for Manchester City or any other club in the next few days then he’s an absolute disgrace.” Delph made 128 appearances for Villa, scoring eight goals, and received the first of his six England caps against Norway in September 2014. And City boss Manuel Pellegrini was delighted with the signing, telling City’s official website: “Fabian Delph is an excellent player and I am looking forward to working with him. “He has made a huge impact in recent seasons at Aston Villa and is now one of the brightest young midfielders in the Premier League. “Fabian has tremendous skill and energy, and the fact that he has become a regular member of the England squad is further evidence of his progress over the past few seasons. At just 25 years old, he still has his best years ahead of him.” Villa had reacted with joy last week to the news that Delph was apparently staying, with assistant boss Ray Wilkins hailing him for rejecting City’s millions in favour of “700 games and a good career” at Villa. Frank Lampard, who had himself angered some at his former club Chelsea by joining City on loan shortly after signing for New York City FC, tweeted: “Congratulations and good luck to Fabian Delph, the new number 18 @MCFC. Enjoy wearing the shirt for City and England!”
