Bookies approached to India skipper Mithali Raj?


Kolkata: ICC on Sunday asked Indian women’s cricket team captain Mithali Raj that whether the bookies had ever approached to her. They asked this on the first day of ICC's five-day meeting in Kolkata.

The India skipper was present here as a 'special invitee' on ICC's quarterly meeting which began with discussions on women's cricket.

"She was here for a small part during the meeting. She was asked whether she has encountered any instances of match fixing. She said she has not till date," an ICC official said.

Since Under-19 and women's matches are being televised more and more, ICC wants to take precautionary measures.

Before any ICC event, even the U-19 and women's teams have to attend the classes of the ICC integrity unit on how to tackle corrupt approaches.
