Spot-fixing: British tabloid claims to shatter ludicrous claims of Pak envoy

The British tabloid, which unearthed a 150,000 pound spot-fixing scandal, has said that it can shatter the ludicrous claims of Pakistans High Commissioner to the UK, Wajid Hasan, that his countrys cricketers were victims of a set up.


London, Sep 5: The British tabloid, which unearthed a 150,000 pound 'spot-fixing' scandal, has said that it can "shatter the ludicrous claims" of Pakistan's High Commissioner to the UK, Wajid Hasan, that his country's cricketers were victims of a "set up".

Hasan had earlier alleged that the video evidence was filmed after the three 'no-balls' had been bowled by Pakistan fast bowlers Mohammad Asif and Mohammad Amir in the Lord's Test against England.

"We are not seeing on the video what the date or time is. Do you have answers to these questions? It could have been dated before the match or after the match, or at a different time," Hasan had said.

However, News of The World claims that they have cast-iron proof with timed evidence from e-mails, text messages, phone records, videos and receipts.

"We have dated receipts showing our reporters picked up 140,000 pounds from a London travel agents and took a hired car to the London hotel where our undercover Investigations Editor Mazher Mahmood met match fixer Mazhar Majeed to hand over the cash," the tabloid said.

Police possess CCTV footage from the hotel showing Mahmood and Majeed arriving separately for the meeting on August 25.
