In a recently concluded private league match in Ajman, United Arab Emirates (UAE), there have been hilarious modes of dismissals, with the players not even trying their bit to save themselves.

Cricket has always been in the spotlight when it comes to betting scandals, whether it be South African Hansie Cronje's match fixing in April 2000, or the case of three Pakistani players colluding to play no balls against England in the 2010 test match at Lords.

"I don't know the exact score I got since there was no proper scorer around". The tournament involved many players from South Asian countries, including a few former worldwide cricketers as well.

As per the report, during a match of the T20 tournament named "Ajman All Stars League", several batsmen appeared to be deliberately throwing away their wickets in a freakish manner, either by running themselves out or getting stumped without even trying to return to the safety of the crease.
