The inaugural edition of the Qatar T10 League, a 10-over format tournament organized by the Qatar Cricket Association, was held from 7 to 16 December this year.

The International Cricket Council is investigating the Qatar T10 League after stopping “many knowns corrupts” who cleared it a year ago and featured some of the leading retired players such as South Africa’s Hashim Amla.

The ICC’s anti-corruption unit was working with the organizers to oversee the league.

“The ICC approved the event 12 months ago based on information provided by the organizers,” Alex Marshall, general manager of the ICC’s Integrity Unit, said in a statement released Tuesday night.

Substantial changes in team organizers & ownership occurred some days before the event, which rang alarm bells for us & we applied additional investigative resources to the ground to address our concerns.
