The BCCI on Tuesday said that it was not aware of any wrongdoing by any cricketer in the Indian Premier League Twenty20 tournament.
A report in The Australian, which quoted two unnamed IPL officials said "a leading batsman had played so suspiciously that they could not explain his behaviour."
However, IPL's interim chairman Chirayu Amin and BCCI spokesman Rajiv Shukla denied receiving any report from the International Cricket Council and said they were not aware of any such wrongdoing.
"There is a constant endeavour to check on any wrongdoing by the players. It's been there and to make it stronger we continue to be vigilant under the ICC rules and as well as IPL regulations. Everything is under constant monitoring and surveillance," Amin said.
"As IPL chief I am not aware and don't have any knowledge of any request made from the ICC ACSU for investigation unless it has been made to BCCI," he added.
BCCI's media and finance committee chairman Shukla also denied was not aware of any such reports and said if any such thing is reported, the Anti corruption and Security Unit of the ICC will look into it.
"If the ICC Anti-corruption and security unit investigates anything, BCCI always extends full cooperation. So there is no question of not cooperating with them. As far as IPL is concerned so far we have received no such report," he said.
"But in IPL 3, the BCCI and the IPL had taken solicited services of anti corruption unit of ICC, which is an expert body. If they had found anything, they would have definitely investigated that but so far we are not aware of anything. If anything comes up now, it is purely upto anti-corruption unit to look into it," he added.
After the spot-fixing scandal rocked international cricket last month, the Indian Premier League (IPL) also came under the scanner with reports in an Australian paper claiming that a leading batsman played so "suspiciously" in the event that he had to be moved up the order to stop him from "manipulating matches".
This report comes in the wake of the ongoing spot-fixing scandal exposed by a British tabloid which has led to the suspension of three Pakistani cricketers -- Test captain Salman Butt and fast bowlers Mohammad Aamer and Mohammad Asif -- and an inquiry by the Scotland Yard.
