The newly-crowned champions Minerva Punjab on two occasions — one in January and the other earlier this month — had alleged match-fixing approaches.

“Regarding the first approach relating to the alleged phone calls made to the Minerva players and the support staff, we have handed the information and the details to the CBI,”

As per the information, it is learnt that the Minerva players who were allegedly approached for the match fixing, are Souvik Das, Willian Opoku, Abhishek Ambedkar, Sukhdev Singh, Kassim Aidara, Rakshit Dagar and Chencho.
