The Bangladesh Premier League have hit a new scandal as four suspected bookmakers have been thrown out of the cricket stadiums in efforts to ensure that the tournament goes on freely without any problem an official said on Thursday.

BPL Secretary Ismail Haider Malick said that Anti-corruption officials have spotted four bookies whom they suspected of placing bets on the behalf of the clients during the Twenty20 league matches which is illegal in Bangladesh.

 “We don’t have the law to put them behind bars so we opted to throw them out (of the grounds),” Mallick told AFP, without revealing the nationalities of those identified.

The BPL modeled on the Lucrative Indian Premier League resumed in November after its 2013 edition was marred by the match-fixing scandal involving players and team owners.

The Bangladesh Cricket Board cancelled last year’s edition but now believes everything is fine and going on smoothly.

However the Bangladesh media this week labeled a November 30 match dubious after several incidents including a bowler conceding numerous runs in a single over including with no balls and wides during Barisal Bulls win over Chittagong Vikings.

“We cannot investigate a match simply based on media reports,” said Mallick. “Our anti-corruption officials are active in every ground and hotel. If they find anything fishy only then we will investigate.”

Nearly 50 foreign cricketers including Kumar Sangakarra and West Indies Chris Gayle are taking part in this six franchise tournament.
