Former IPL player CM Gautam and Abrar Kazi arrested for match fixing

CM Gautam Abrar Kazi arrested for alleged role in KPL match fixing scandal

Former Karnataka players CM Gautam and Abrar Kazi have been arrested by the Central Crime Branch of Bangalore in what comes as a further setback for the beleaguered Karnataka Premier League.

Earlier, cricketer Nishanth Singh Shekhawat was also arrested by the Karnataka police in connection with the KPL spot-fixing case on Tuesday. The police, after investigation, found that the bookies had asked Vishwanathan to score less than 10 runs in 20 balls in a match against the Hubli Tigers. Viswanathan made 9 off 17 balls in that innings. After the news of his arrest on Thursday, the Goa Cricket Association (GCA) cancelled Gautam's contract and named Darshan Misal as the new captain for the Syed Mushtaq Ali T20 tournament which begins on Friday.

He was an integral part of the Karnataka side that won the domestic treble two years in a row in 2013-14 and 2014-15.

Wicketkeeper-batsman CM Gautam and Abrar Kazi were arrested in Bangalore by a special unit investigating corruption and fixing in the Karnataka Premier League. "Also, they fixed another match against Bangalore team", Sandeep Patil, the Joint Commissioner of Police, stated in a release. CCB officials stated that the duo was paid Rs 20 lakh for "slow batting" during the final of the tournament. Three others, including the owner of the Belagavi Panthers' team, have been arrested since the scandal came to light a couple of months ago.

They did spot-fixing in the KPL 2019 finals between Hubli and Bellary. Kazi shifted to Mizoram. Abrar Kazi has played Ranji for Karnataka and now for Mizoram.
