The police went on to say that they had received a tip about betting activities at Morris' house in Versova. “Morris was involved in taking bets on an IPL match,” said an officer. The police also seized laptops and cellphones from the house. He will be in police custody till he is presented in the Magistrate court on Monday.

In fact, last year too he was named by Al Jazeera TV, after a sting operation was conducted. Fomrer Pakistan batsman Hasan Raza was seen on the video, sitting next to Morris, as they spoke to the undercover reporter about spot-fixing in T20 tournaments. But the cricketer had denied any such involvement and said that he was called for an audition for a film.

Morris was earlier part of the rebel league, ICL, and played for Mumbai Champs. This is not the first time he has landed in trouble. On December 1, 2019, he along with four others were arrested for kidnapping a loan agent from Kurla, to recover Rs 2 lakh.

Police had said that Morris had applied for a personal loan with a private agency and paid a heavy processing fee. The application was made through agent Shyam Talreja. When the loan was not approved, Morris started pursuing the latter for the processing fee.
