The BCB has captured 77 BPL gamblers, including 12 foreigners, 10 of whom are Indians.
But since there are no existing laws regarding cricket gambling, cricket’s governing body in the country was unable to indict them or register a general diary.
“Other than raising awareness, the BCB has nothing else to do regarding this. Through the LED and scoreboard placed at the stadium, we are trying to raise awareness. It is not possible for us to stop the betting that is taking place in this country. The whole issue depends on the law enforcement authorities. We have no laws in our country regarding betting,” said BPL governing council member secretary Ismail Haider Mallick.
“However, the anti-corruption and security units have been working on this. If betting takes place inside the stadium then these two units will take action. But even if we capture the gamblers, we can’t place them under the legal system. We can’t even place a general diary against them,” he added.
