The Income Tax Department is bringing out dreaded details of a possible scandal on the cricket field as well – that is at least what the reports in the media are suggesting. Even as Sachin Tendulkar felt off field problems would not affect on field action, Tiger Pataudi’s fear of the match fixing allegations may yet be proved to be correct.
Following a confidential IT investigation report, as many as twenty-seven cricketers from the IPL 2 season maybe probed on the possibility of match fixing. The report is said to have an IPL official as well who was in regular contact with the cricketers.
The news is particularly worrying because the IPL is already undergoing a trail by media of the fiasco involving Lalit Modi and with the matchfixing angle rearing its head once more, it has left the franchisees on a shaky pitch as well and they are believed to be upset over the reports about this information about the tournament played in South Africa and demanding to know details of it.
At the time of putting this in ink, the government officials as well as those of the IPL are said to have denied knowledge about this.
