The Ajman All-Stars League of United Arab Emirate (UAE) will be investigated by the International Cricket Council’s (ICC) anti-corruption unit after some suspicious video clips from a match went viral on the internet.

In the videos that had gone viral on the social networking sites, viewers can witness bizarre run-outs and stumpings from the players; during a T20 match between the Dubai Stars and Sharjah Warriors.

The league that is played under the authorisation of UAE Cricket Board was shut down after just two days as United Arab Emirates officials blocked any further cricket action at the Ajman Oval.
