KATHMANDU: The Ministry of Home Affairs has instructed the Central Investigation Bureau (CIB) of the Nepal Police to investigate the issue of match-fixing in the Nepal T20 League.

The Home Ministry gave this instruction on Tuesday after the news about a match-fixing proposal to the players in the ongoing Nepal T20 league came to light.

Earlier, a commentator involved in the tournament suspected match-fixing. Later, without disclosing the name of his players, Kathmandu Knights captain Gyanendra Malla had revealed that one of his friends was approached for the fixing.

Malla shared that he reported the proposal to the Anti-Corruption Unit.

The match started very late on Tuesday due to the fact that the players did not get their salaries in the tournament, which has been in controversy since the beginning.

The match was played for 9 overs after Cricket Association of Nepal (CAN) officials assured the players that CAN would arrange the money by the evening.

In the meantime, the league itself faced a critical juncture after CAN president Chatur Bahadur Chand admitted that the owner of Seven Three Sports, which CAN made a commercial and strategic partner, was out of touch.

On Tuesday, Sachin Timalsina, who was working as a commentator in the official broadcast of the league, mentioned that the League had become the victim of ‘fixing’.
