6 umpires tossed for helping gamblers --- February 9th, 2016

It is a practice whereby gamblers attend sporting events live and bet on scores before bookmakers have up-to-date information.

Umpires at smaller tournaments update the scoreboard themselves after each point, and this information is transmitted to live-score sites and bookmakers.

The umpires being investigated are alleged to have deliberately delayed updating the scores for up to 60 seconds – allowing gamblers to place bets on events they knew the outcome of.
