The issue of match fixing has often come up in the country. How do players avoid this issue? Former Delhi Police Commissioner made a big revelation in this regard on Sunday. He said that the law against corruption in Indian sports is not very strict. This is the reason why despite there being strong evidence of spot-fixing, players like former Indian cricket team fast bowler S Sreesanth have not suffered any loss. Sreesanth’s name came up in the match fixing case in IPL 2013.

Sreesanth was saved even after getting evidence

A Special Cell team led by former Delhi Police Commissioner Neeraj Kumar had arrested Sreesanth and his fellow Rajasthan Royals cricketers Ajit Chandila and Ankit Chavan on spot-fixing charges. The Supreme Court in 2019 had said there was enough evidence against the former player and asked the BCCI to reconsider imposing a lifetime ban, but ultimately reduced the punishment to a 7-year suspension, which will end in 2020. Done.

There is no law against corruption in cricket

Neeraj Kumar said that there is no law against corruption in cricket in our country. If we talk about other countries, there are laws in countries like Zimbabwe, Australia, New Zealand. There is corruption not only in cricket but also in football, tennis and golf. He said there is a lack of legislation to prosecute corruption in sports.

Difficult to prove case in court without victim

The former police commissioner said that when we say in the court that people were cheated due to match fixing, the court asks who was cheated, bring him. In such a situation, which person will come to the court and say that I had gone to watch a fair cricket match? Because of this, it is difficult to prove this case in court without any victim.
