The International Cricket Council announced that they will be investigating the All-Time Ajman League after footage emerged of the shocking ways some batsmen were getting out. This gave the batsmen ample time to return to the crease but neither batsmen made any effort. There have been several instances of corruption in domestic as well as global tournaments.

The Ajman Oval has, over the last few years, emerged as a potential cricketing venue owing to facilities that are of global standard, including floodlights.

According to reports, the league involves players from the UAE, India, Pakistan and a small number from other cricket countries.

". We found the Ajman Oval breaching the code a couple of times and hence we have suspended their affiliation", ACC secretary general Shaji Ul Mulk told a website. "But when I reached there, I realised it was just an amateur level event which had no match referee, ICC anti-corruption representative or even scorers", said Butt as quoted by Sportstar. UAE is an associate member at the ICC whose club and department cricket actives are regulated by four major councils under the ECB's watch.
