Fake cricket league in India’s Gujrat dupes punters from Russia – SUCH TV

A group of local Indians tricked Russian players into creating a ‘fake Indian Premier League’ (IPL) in a remote village of Gujrat.

According to Indian media, the police have arrested a group of residents who are involved in the intrigues of online gamblers in Russia.

The reports detail that a “fake IPL” was created by scammers and broadcast live in the Russian cities of Tver, Voronezh and Moscow.

Contact with the Russian players took place via Telegram and the first betting payout – up to INR 300,000 – was transferred when the group was arrested by the police.

Police said the mastermind of the fake tournament was Shoeb Davda (resident of Molipur, Gujarat), adding that he had previously worked in a gambling pub in Russia for eight months.

“Shoeb rented Ghulam Masih’s farm and installed halogen lights there. He groomed 21 farm workers, promising them 400 rupees a game. Then he hired videographers and bought T-shirts. of the IPL team,” a police official told Indian media.

“Shoeb once made a request to the umpire via walkie-talkie four and six. Following the instructions, the pitcher will throw a slow pitch, allowing the pitcher to hit it with a score of four or six,” the official added.

A commentator from Meerut, with a talent for imitating the famous Indian commentator Harsha Bhogle, also alludes to reinforcing the “authenticity of the fake IPL”.

This news caught Bhogle’s attention and he laughed it off.

“Can’t stop laughing. Gotta heard this ‘commentator’,” the commenter wrote on Twitter.
