Anatnag, July 23: Teams participating in the ongoing Anantnag Corporate Premier League have alleged tournament organisers of mismanagement despite paying a hefty entry fee.

The organisers have allegedly eliminated a team on the basis of Net Run Rate by giving them walk-over win in one of the matches. In a WhatsApp conversation conveyed to KSW, the team has hit out at ACPL, saying them ‘looters’.

According to the allegation, organisers had asked the team to report at the venue at 11AM, however, on match day they were informed at 9:30AM about other team having fortified the match.

Moreover, it was also alleged that only 9 players fielded for both teams in the match played on Tuesday, which again has raised questions on the standard of league,

“They’re looting people on the name of cricket. Today only 9 players fielded from both teams. Teams paid about 65K for participation and this is the standard they’re provided with,” a source claimed.

KSW tried to reach organisers of the league for further clarification in the matter, however, they weren’t available.
