Shahid Afridi's autobiography is not short of a shocking revelation, though few are as compelling as his role in the uncovering of the spot-fixing scandal of 2010. Afridi’s autobiography is landing him in one controversy after the other.
The 2010 spot-fixing incident has caught everyone’s attention and it could land Afridi in hot waters after the latest revelations. The Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) treasurer Anirudh Chaudhry has raised doubts regarding former Pakistan all-rounder Shahid Afridi’s inaction in the 2010 spot-fixing controversy.
Anirudh Chaudhry argued that why Afridi didn’t report the matter to International Cricket Council (ICC) Anti-Corruption Unit (ACU) despite knowing what was happening behind the scenes. The ICC law on reporting corrupt practices states: “Participants must report all approaches, or information regarding corrupt, or invitation to engage in corrupt conduct, to the appropriate ACU, without unnecessary delay.”
Afridi has revealed in his autobiography 'Game Changer' that he was aware of the malpractices by teammates Salman Butt, Mohammad Amir and Mohammad Asif before the 2010 spot-fixing scandal broke out.
