Dubai: The ICC on Thursday confirmed that there is”strong evidence” to indicate that the Ajman All Stars tournament is a “corrupt event” but at the same time clarified that the parent body cannot take action as it is not under their sanctioning purview.

The tournament being held in Dubai has come under the scanner for the bizarre way of dismissals during one of its matches, leading ICC to conduct investigations against it.

 

ICC’s GM (Anti-Corruption Unit) Alex Marshall on his part stated: “After speaking to a number of those involved we consider there to be strong evidence to indicate this was a corrupt event and damaging to the wider reputation of cricket and as such will continue the investigation.”

Marshall said ICC is now trying to track down the organisers. “Our ongoing enquiries will now focus on identifying the organisers of the tournament to prevent similar incidents occurring.”
