Rangpur deny Jupiter's fixing claim

Update : 28 Nov 2016, 12:51 AM
Recently, a few questions have been raised with regards to match-fixing issues surrounding Bangladesh Premier League Twenty20 franchise Rangpur Riders. However, the Rangpur team management has denied the allegations, raised by their suspended player Jupiter Ghosh, through a press release on Sunday. According to the media release, Rangpur informed that a certain group of people, including Jupiter, are trying to tarnish the image of the franchise after he was suspended due to disciplinary issues recently. When Dhaka Tribune contacted Jupiter, he stated that he has not breached any disciplinary conduct and that it was former national cricketer and Rangpur manager Sanwar Hossain who approached him illegally before he signed the official contract with the franchise prior to BPL 4. “I was given some illegal offer by Rangpur manager Sanwar before I signed the contract, which I obviously declined. But after I signed the contract with Rangpur on November 4, all of a sudden the team management started to provide illogical allegations against me, citing disciplinary issues, which I didn't do. I am going to inform everything to the Bangladesh Cricket Board’s anti-corruption security unit (Monday),” Jupiter told Dhaka Tribune on Sunday. When Dhaka Tribune contacted BPL governing council member secretary Ismail Haider Mallick, he said, “We will investigate the matter soon.”
