ICC launches probe after weird dismissals in private UAE league

Ajman All Stars fixing

The Warriors were chasing 136 to win but folded for just 46.

A private T20 cricket league that was being played in Ajman, UAE, has now come under the scanner of the International Cricket Council's (ICC) Anti-Corruption Unit (ACU) after a bizzare footage of some ridiculous dismissals during a league match emerged on social media. The tournament, named the All-Time Ajman league, had to be called off on its second day after local cricket authorities refused to allow them to continue using the ground.

If you've ever played cricket you might stand a chance of being player of the tournament.

The league included a few former worldwide players and a number of expatriates from South Asian countries. Out of the 10 wickets taken in Dubai's innings, five were stumpings and three were runouts, which is highly irregular for a cricket match.

Butt featured in the league along with some other former Pakistan cricketers like Hasan Raza and Muhammad Khalil. "But when I reached there I realised it was just an amateur level event which had no match referee, ICC anti-corruption representative or even scorers", Butt said Wednesday.

Footage emerged on YouTube highlighting the weird nature of the dismissals.

Former Pakistan captain Salman Butt has suffered many tenacious and hard moments in his global cricket career.

The tournament was a private one and since it is not sanctioned, it does not come under the purview as such of the Emirates Cricket Board (ECB) or the ICC but the governing body intervened after reviewing the videos.

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