Rajagopal Sathish, a former first-class and IPL cricketer, allegedly received a $40,000 offer to rig games in the Tamil Nadu Premier League.
Cash Offered Over Social Media to Rajagopal Sathish
Sathish, 41, played on the Chepauk Super Gillies team that won the TNPL last year. The former Tamil Nadu player has also played for the Kolkata Knight Riders, Mumbai Indians, and Punjab Kings in the IPL. The offer came from a man by the name of Bunny Anand. “Earlier this month, he told us and the International Cricket Council that he had received a cash offer over social media. We urged him to file a police report because, in these situations, we are merely facilitators. Shabir Khandwawala, the head of BCCI ACU, told PTI that because he had done that, police will now look into it and take appropriate action.
Bengaluru Police Have Received the Complaint
The Bengaluru Police have received the complaint. The ACU chief responded: “Whatever the circumstances were, it needs to be seen by the police. ” When asked why Sathish chose to contact the BCCI only now, he added.We don’t want to put him off. Our responsibility is to lead him if he has made the decision to come out, said Khandwawala, a former Gujarat DGP.
Sathish has also participated in 57 List A games and 41 first-class games. He also participated in the now-defunct, illegal Indian Cricket League.
