The Board of Control of Cricket in India (BCCI) has detected a culprit named as Ravinder Dandiwal who has been accused of having relations with match-fixing and is among the heads of such made on club levels and Tennis.
The criminal is also linked up with the Afghanistan Premier League (APL) and BCCI is further investigating about him as he is under the keen observation of the board.

“He is originally from Mohali near Chandigarh but moves around a lot in the Middle East and other places. His name has figured among those who organise cricket leagues. Once it figured in a private cricket league in Haryana, which the ACU scuttled. An advisory was sent to all BCCI-registered players not to participate,” revealed Ajit Singh as quoted by Indian Express.
“He had taken a cricket team to Australia, where a club was organising a tournament, and a few players from that team never returned… We found that the players who had vanished were charged hefty sums to be part of the team. Probably, it was an immigration racket and that’s why we lodged a complaint with police,” an official of BCCI added.
As he was not a participant, not much harsh action taken would be taken.
“There have been inquiries about him, but he is not a participant, so there’s very little action that we can take against him. He hasn’t figured in the inquiries we conducted in the T20 leagues (organised by state associations). But he is a person of interest, and we do try and keep him under watch,” Singh further added.
