CHENNAI: The BCCI’s anti-corruption unit (ACU) has launched an inquiry into alleged approaches made to several players by suspicious people in the latest edition of the Tamil Nadu Premier League (TNPL). It's learnt that seven to eight players had reported approaches to the ACU.

“Some players have reported that they received WhatsApp messages from certain unknown people. We are trying to find out who those people are. We have recorded the statements of the players and we will try to track the senders of the messages,” said Ajit Singh, head of the ACU.

The Tamil Nadu Cricket Association has also appointed a committee to look into the allegations.

Meanwhile, in an unprecedented development, a member of the India women cricket team was allegedly approached to fix matches earlier this year, prompting the Anti-Corruption Unit to lodge a FIR against two individuals on Monday.
