Goa Terminates CM Gautam's Contract After Being Arrested for Fixing Allegations

CCB arrests two batsmen in KPL spot-fixing scandal

The KSCA has also stated that any players, match officials or umpires who have been arrested in connection with the incident based on the first impression will be suspended with immediate effect. According to the police, Shekhawat was the link between bookies and Vinu Prasad, a Bengaluru Blasters bowling coach, who was arrested in October along with batsman Vishwanath, formerly with the same team.

Police said the two were involved in fixing in the KPL 2019 final between Bellary Tuskers and Hubli Tigers after accepting Rs 20 lakh each for slow batting.

Gautam is by far the highest profile name to emerge in the KPL fixing scandal, which broke in September with the arrest of Belagavi Panthers owner Ali Asfak Thara, and the consequent suspension of the franchise.

Gautam also played for the India-A team and has represented Royal Challengers Bangalore, Mumbai Indians, and Delhi Daredevils in the IPL.

Bellary Tuskers captain Gautam and his teammate Kazi were arrested by the city's Central Crime Branch, which is investigating charges of spot-fixing in the last two seasons of KPL.

Captain Gautam had reportedly agreed to bat slowly as long as he was at the crease, while Abrar Kazi had agreed to bowl and give away more than 10 runs a over in the finals.

Gautam has been a consistent performer in domestic cricket and was Vinay Kumar's deputy for a long time. He shifted to Goa this season. There was also evidence that they fixed more matches.

Match-fixing activities happening behind the scenes are a total disgrace to the gentleman's game.

The coach allegedly manipulated a game between Bengaluru Blasters and Belagavi Panthers past year.

"The CCB has made two important arrests in the KPL spot-fixing scandal", Sandeep Patil, the Joint Commissioner of Police, told ESPNcricinfo.

"Based on the initial investigation report, the KSCA has suspended the owners of the franchise - Belagavi Panthers, one of the franchise of the Karnataka Premier League (KPL)". Severe actions would be taken against each individual if they are found guilty.

Goutam was supposed to represent the Goa cricket team in the Syed Mushtaq Ali T-20 tournament scheduled to begin from Friday.
