'European bookies not involved in Lord's Test spot-fixing scam'

The body that monitors betting patterns in Europe has said that none of the bookmakers that it regulates were involved in the Lords Test spot-fixing scandal.


London, Sep 2: The body that monitors betting patterns in Europe has said that none of the bookmakers that it regulates were involved in the Lord's Test 'spot-fixing' scandal.

The European Sports Security Association (ESSA) said that none of its members offered odds on 'no-balls' during the fourth Test between Pakistan and England.

"The body is prepared to work with the International Cricket Council's anti-corruption unit to provide them with betting related information to make sure cricket's integrity is upheld," The Daily Times quoted Mike O'Kane, ESSA chief bookmaker, as saying.

The Pakistan team is in the midst of a betting scam, where fast bowlers Mohammad Amir and Mohammad Asif are alleged to have bowled pre-arranged no-balls in the Lord's Test, which England won by an innings and 225 runs.

According to The News of the World, London-based agent Mazhar Majeed is the alleged man behind the 150,000-pound betting scam.

The tabloid claims that they have footage of Majeed accepting money, and in return, he detailed what would happen and when on the field of play next day.

It also claims that Majeed had identified Butt as the ringleader.

He also named wicket keeper Kamran Akmal, and a total of seven corrupt cricketers.
