As per the Reports in FirstPost – Ravi Sawani, The Anti-Corruption and Security Unit (ACSU) Chief, has warned the IPL team owners to put an end to yacht parties and lavish dinners as they all are under the threat of violating their “zero tolerance policy”. 

In an email to all team owners, Sawani listed the instances when the players and franchise violated operational rules and the Anti-Corruption Code. The most common of those was the unknown women staying with players in their hotel rooms. In a case, an unknown CSK player had a late night women visitor, who stayed with him in his hotel room. When questioned, the player answered that she is his ‘fiancee’. ACU then inquired about her and it revealed that she was the same woman, who was in touch with the banned Indian cricketer S. Sreesanth and some other IPL players in the past. 

According to BCCI’s ACU protocol, players are only allowed to share their rooms with their wives, blood relations and the partners that have been declared in advance. 

It has been learnt that ACSU has taken this step so as to get a more strict after the spot-fixing scandal, that somewhat tarnished its image in 2013. Rajasthan Royals’ (RR) players Sreesanth, Ajit Chandila and Ankeet Chavan were caught for the same. 

Earlier this year, an unknown RR player was approached in a match fixing attempt. After getting across to the news, BCCI secretary Anurag Thakur immediately tweeted out that “BCCI’s education policy [is] showing positive results. Players are alert and they know what is to be done due to our regular education efforts.”
