Over the years, the franchise cricket has always been vulnerable to corruption. The bookies and the other groups involved in this dreadful activity, approached different players to make the tournament un-fair. Tamil Nadu Premier League, Indian-based league, is recently under the threat of corruption.
The tournament which was inaugurated by Mahendra Singh Dhoni, faces early jolts. The players approached the authorities and informed them about the grim situation. Veteran Indian commentator, Harsha Bhogle showed his concern over the incident. He feels that these are not the good signs for cricket especially for a newly began league.
“Very concerned at the news of possible match-fixing in the Tamil Nadu Premier League. Shows that the crooks can infiltrate even a traditional cricket loving city like Chennai. But the silver lining is that more players are reporting approaches. Moreover, we need a law against fixing urgently and then, hopefully, the sight of people going to jail will act as a stronger deterrent.”, Harsha added.
