ACU evicts Accused bookies from Jaipur and Mumbai games

Throughout the Indian Premier League, the Board of Control for Cricket in India's Anti-Corruption Unit (ACU) has kept a close eye out for suspicious activity. The ACU has removed suspected bookies from two Rajasthan Royals games in Mumbai and Jaipur during IPL 2024.

During the Rajasthan Royals' home game against the Delhi Capitals on March 28, the ACU reportedly turned out two suspected bookmakers to local police from a corporate box. A BCCI official confirmed this information. Two suspects were later turned up to police from the MCA President's Box at Wankhede Stadium on April 1 (during the MI-RR game).

Even though both people had an FIR filed against them in Jaipur, the Mumbai case was a likely instance of mistaken identification.

'Nothing untoward was found on their electronic devices,' an officer from Marine Drive Police Station stated, so the two were released.

The eight to fifteen-second gap between live action and a televised or streamed feed is typically exploited by bookmakers through firsthand observation of matches and information sharing. CCTV and live TV video appear to have seen the ACU coming into action.

Under the condition of anonymity, the BCCI source emphasized that the ACU is 'doing its best to keep corrupt elements away from the IPL' with the help of the BCCI apparatus.

It's interesting to note that none of the 200 seats available for the MCA President's Box, located directly above the Wankhede Stadium dressing rooms—are offered to the general public.
