Shabir Khandwawala, the new head of the anti-corruption department of the Cricket Control Board of India, has strongly opposed legal betting on the sport’s events. Although the former leaders of the council thought otherwise – in their opinion, legal betting and its strict regulation will help fight underground bookmakers and corruption in cricket. Khandwawal, who previously led the Gujarat State Police, said he believes betting could trigger match-fixing. He promised to tighten the regulation of betting in cricket. Analysts noted that in India, at the national level, the market for sports betting, which are accepted both via the Internet and at land-based points, is not fully regulated. At the same time, regional authorities can independently regulate betting. Cricket is the most popular sport in this country, which means that it attracts the attention of both bettors and bookmakers, experts noted. As My Lucky Story wrote, the well-known international company Sportradar has been involved in the fight against corruption in sports in the Netherlands. As reported, Jose Maria Marin – former president of the Brazilian Football Federation – was sentenced to four years in prison. The ex-sports functionary, who was in the United States, was found guilty of taking bribes by an American court. Recall that in Wales, law enforcement officers detained ten people who were considered involved in organizing football match-fixing.
