Sportsradar has partnered with the Tamil Nadu Cricket Association to monitor any fraudulent activities during the TNPL for the next three seasons.
The fifth edition of the TNPL has kickstarted from Monday at the MA Chidambaram Stadium (Chepauk) in Chennai. TNPL 2021 final is scheduled to be played on August 15. A part of the contract all the matches in TNPL will be monitored by Sportradar’s Integrity Services Fraud Detection System (FDS), which will provide additional support to help safeguard the integrity of the tournament.
The fraud detection system tracks betting data through online channels in real-time & its analysts’ reviews & tracks the matches that will be played during the TNPL season with the latest technology & sports data. Tamil Nadu Cricket Association (TNCA) secretary R S Ramaswamy believes that this partnership is the need of the hour.
“The partnership with Sportradar is an extension of our intent to make the TNPL a secure and world-class product. It is the need of the hour in current times,” he said in a statement.
Along with providing FDS solutions to the TNPL, Sprotsradar has also become the Official Data Distribution Partner of the League for the next three seasons for the collection & distribution of the TNPL match-related data internationally.
Speaking about the partnership, Mona Motwani of Sportsradar said: “We believe that monitoring and fraud detection is fundamental to public confidence in sport, and that wrongdoing at any tier of competition affects all levels of a sport and its fans. As the global leader in sports integrity solutions, we look forward to providing our expertise to help protect the TNPL against fraud-related issues”.
“We also believe that our agreement on data distribution will provide the League further leverage in terms of reach and exposure internationally since cricket is already the most followed sport in Tamil Nadu and in India. The agreement showcases the wide range of services that we offer to engage and support sports rights holders in the region,” Motwani added.
The TNPL partnership with Sportsradar comes two months after Sportsradar acquired InteractSport, a sports data & technology company with partnerships across a range of leading sporting organizations with a particular depth and expertise in cricket.
