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

The alleged incident, which the player reported to the Board’s ACU, took place in February, ahead of the limited-overs home series against England.

Ajit Singh Shekhawat, who heads the ACU, conformed the development to PTI.

“She is India cricketer and an international cricketer so the ICC conducted an inquiry into it. The ICC warned the person who made the approach and informed us and acknowledged that the cricketer has done the right thing by reporting the approach,” Shekhawat said.

The ACU has registered a first-information report (FIR) with the Bengaluru police against two individuals, Rakesh Bafna and Jitendra Kothari, for the allegedly approaching Indian women team.
