Cricket bosses launch corruption probe after weird scenes in UAE T20 match

ICC launches investigation over 'irregular activities' in private UAE league

The ICC has launched a probe into a private T20 league played in the UAE which saw freakish methods of dismissals where batsmen refused to get back into the crease to save their wickets after either dancing down to the bowlers or going after non-existent runs in the infield. Set 136 to win, the Warriors were bundled out for 46 with most batsmen either being stumped or run out.

After the reaching for the competition in UAE, the left-hand batsman realised that this just an amateur level event, which did not include any major officials.

It is believed Neo Sports, the league's broadcaster, is also being questioned by the ICC.
