15 May 2012. The Hindi-language India TV channel, after a sting operation, showed a local player contracted with an Indian Premier League (IPL) team allegedly agreeing to bowl pre-arranged no-balls in a domestic match, with another boasting he could do it in the IPL too.

The Indian cricket board (BCCI)  said it would seek complete footage of the television
channel’s sting operation before deciding if any action needed to be taken. “Some television channels have been reporting a story pertaining to alleged unacceptable practices by players participating in the IPL,” BCCI Secretary Sanjay Jagdale
said in a statement.
