Match-fixing: Uproar in Parliament; Maken promises actionZeenews Sports Bureau

New Delhi: Sports Minister Ajay Maken Tuesday promised action against match-fixing in the field of sports in the country.

Won’t tolerate corruption in Indian cricket, says BCCI»

What is spot-fixing?»

Fixing Timeline »

Maken was reacting to BJP leader Kirti Azad’s demand in the parliament that government should take strict action against match-fixing or spot-fixing allegations brought up by an Indian news channel on Monday.

Maken also asked the BCCI to take the matter seriously and resolve them as soon as possible. He said, “It is a challenge as well as an opportunity for the BCCI as it would help them eradicate the menace of match-fixing. They should resolve the issue early.”

He also said that every sports lover in the country wanted action against match-fixers. He also said that fixing happened not just in cricket. “Not only in cricket but fixing takes place in other sports as well.”

Former Indian cricketer and BJP leader Kirti Azad asked the government to step up internal auditing of different sports bodies and associations to check the spot-fixing in sports.

He also questioned how the second edition of the IPL was shifted to South Africa.


Earlier on Monday, a TV channel had claimed to have done a sting operation wherein cricketers had confessed on hidden camera that they are paid more than their prescribed auction amount.

The channel further claimed that spot-fixing is not only prevalent in IPL but also in first class cricket, where matches are fixed and women played an important role in match-fixing.

Blame yourself. Don`t See these matches directly or through visual media. As I do. Where there is money involved, such cheating is possible. There is no value addition to the Economy. Just money changing hands. Don`t encourage it beyond a limit. Don`t believe the politician also.
