Ajman All Stars League subject of ICC anti-corruption probe

01 February 2018

The International Cricket Council's Anti-Corruption Unit has launched an investigation into a private league match in the UAE, with former England captain Michael Vaughan describing a number of the comical dismissals as "unbelievable".

It has now emerged that Butt, who was banned from cricket for five years and served time in prison following the Lord's spot-fixing scandal of 2010, played two matches in the All Stars tournament despite it being unrecognised by the local Emirates Cricket Board.

The National newspaper reported the Emirates Cricket Board have distanced themselves from the T20 league which is the subject of an International Cricket Council anti-corruption probe.

The footage of the match which apparently was broadcast however, doesn't include any of the Pakistani players.

"I went there as I was not picked for [my domestic team] Lahore and I was doing nothing", said Butt while speaking to the media.

With the spotlight firmly on match-fixing in cricket, the ICC have moved swiftly to investigate.

The UAE is home to several small cricket tournaments being played out in grounds across Ajman and Umm Al Quwain.

Marshall added that the ICC was talking to the players and officials about the match. They are trying to get out rather than score runs. The tournament involved many players from South Asian countries, including a few former global cricketers as well.

A match in the Ajman All Stars League, which is not sanctioned by the Emirates Cricket Board (ECB), saw several batsmen appear to throw their wickets in freaky fashion, by running themselves out or getting stumped without trying to return to the crease, even when the wicketkeeper fumbled.

Going all out for 46 is bad enough.but it was the way they did it.
