Fixing Allegations

Third Ashes Test cleared

International cricket chiefs said Thursday they have found no evidence of match-fixing during the third Ashes Test between Australia and England last December following an investigation into allegations made by a British newspaper.

The Sun said two bookmakers had offered to sell it details of rigged periods of play in the Test which could be bet on to win huge sums.

One of them claimed to have worked on the scam with former and current internationals including a World Cup-winning all-rounder.

No Australia or England players were named as being involved.

The International Cricket Council (ICC) in a statement on Thursday said it had concluded its investigation into allegations of corruption.

"We have carried out an extensive global investigation with anti-corruption colleagues from member countries based on the allegations in The Sun and the material they shared with us," said ICC general manager for anti-corruption Alex Marshall.
