- Ashwin said that this disclosure is eye opener for all
- Taylor told that in 2019 he was blackmailed by an Indian businessman for spot-fixing
Former Zimbabwe captain Brendan Taylor has revealed Somwara was ‘blackmailed’ by an Indian businessman for spot-fixing. Indian off-spinner R Ashwin has reacted after Taylor’s disclosure. Ashwin says that this revelation is eye-opener for all and in such a situation it is better to go quietly when there is another option to bet on.
Taylor on Monday made a sensational disclosure that he was approached by an Indian businessman for spot-fixing in 2019 and that the International Cricket Council (ICC) could ban him for several years for late reporting it.

Ashwin tweeted in this context, “Spread awareness. The person in front of us at the poker table gives us the option to place or leave the bet. In such a situation it is important to leave the table. May God give strength to Brendan and his family.”
Taylor admitted his mistake, claiming that the Indian businessman had invited him to a ‘sponsor’ in India and to discuss possible plans for a T20 tournament in Zimbabwe.
He did not reveal the name of the businessman but said he was offered $15,000 in October 2019.
