Sportskeeda ( a news portal for sports) spoke to a former bookie, who revealed why they never approached Dada for match-fixing. He said- “During the time Sourav Ganguly was the captain, most bookies wanted him to fix matches. But, they also knew that it could never happen, because Dada was one of the most patriotic captains.”

He also added that no one approached Dada as they knew that approaching him would bring an end to their business.
