The Mumbai Cricket Association (MCA) has told India and Indian Premier League (IPL) side Rajasthan Royals’ cricketer Harmeet Singh not to play in the ongoing Kanga League tournament till the spot-fixing probe in the cash-rich Twenty20 league is completed.

The Board of Control for Cricket in India’s (BCCI) Disciplinary Committee will meet in New Delhi on September 13, during which the board’s Anti-Corruption and Security Unit (ACSU) head Ravi Sawani will produce his report, according to the Indian Express.

MCA joint secretary PV Shetty said the association wants the BCCI to convey their stand on Harmeet before allowing the cricketer to take part in its tournaments.

Shetty said, “We don’t know what BCCI’s stand is till date. We are waiting for the disciplinary committee verdict, which is expected next week. We have informed Harmeet to wait until the board clears his name. Until and unless BCCI clears him we can’t do anything.”

A few days ago, India Under-19 cricketer Harmeet in a statement to Sawani said that his Rajasthan Royals teammate Ajit Chandila deceived him into meeting the bookies.

“Ajit deceived me into meeting them. I did not even know their names. When I asked Ajit who they were, he brushed aside the topic and claimed they were like his brothers,” Harmeet was quoted by Hindustan Times.
“It was only when Delhi police showed me their photographs could I recognise them.”

According to reports, Harmeet is yet to be suspended by BCCI and nor the board has issued a show-cause notice against him.
