'Spot-fixing' cash trail leads to Salman Butt

Cash used in the 150,000-pound Lords Test betting scandal has been reportedly found in the belongings of Pakistan skipper Salman Butt.


London, Sep 3: Cash used in the 150,000-pound Lord's Test betting scandal has been reportedly found in the belongings of Pakistan skipper Salman Butt.

According to The Sun, the Scotland Yard police would interrogate Butt today over how the notes - said to have been marked - were found in his hotel room and his locker at Lord's.

Detectives believe that it is part of the 150,000 pounds handed over by News of The World undercover reporter to London-based agent Mazhar Majeed, the alleged mastermind of the betting racket.

The cash is undergoing forensic testing to prove its origins.

In the most sensational sporting scandal ever, it has been claimed that Pakistan fast bowlers Mohammad Amir and Mohammad Asif had delivered three 'no-balls' to order.

According to The News of the World, 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.
