One player has been called into hearing by the Bangladesh Premier League (BPL) and ICC Anti Corruption and Security Unit (ACSU) officials on Monday after a man was arrested the previous night for his suspected involvement in fixing in the BPL.
Sajid Khan, a Pakistani citizen, was approached by Chittagong Kings officials during their game against Barisal Burners at the Sher-e-Bangla National Stadium in Mirpur on Sunday evening. The Bangladesh Cricket Board (BCB) security staff stopped him near the players' zone, which he was trying to access.
The BCB security chief, Col (rtd) Mesbahuddin Serniabat, told New Age that the BCB had kept an eye on Sajid since the matches held in Chittagong, and finally captured him on Sunday. "His movement was very suspicious and we followed him from Chittagong," he said, adding that they had immediately taken him to the ICC Anti-Corruption and Security Unit official before handing him over to the Mirpur police, who were supposed to raid the man's hotel room.
