New Delhi, September 17
The BCCI has roped in Sportradar to detect betting irregularities in the course of the IPL starting within the UAE on September 19.
The BCCI was pressured to take the IPL in a foreign country this season as a result of COVID-19 pandemic. The league will kick off with the match between final 12 months’s champions Mumbai Indians and runners-up Chennai Super Kings.
“As part of the agreement, all matches in IPL 2020 will be monitored by Sportradar’s Integrity Services to detect betting irregularities,” a press launch mentioned.
“Sportradar will also provide a risk assessment to the BCCI driven by intelligence and data-driven insights, and furthermore the BCCI will be able to call upon Sportradar’s Intelligence and Investigation Services during the term of the partnership, if required.”
Sportradar MD Andreas Krannich mentioned: “We know that the BCCI takes integrity seriously, and we look forward to working alongside them throughout the tournament and providing our support to their integrity programme.” PTI
