Spot-fixing: Majeed's texts could help nail Pak cricketers

A British tabloid has revealed that a trail of texts could help Scotland Yard nail London-based bookie Mazher Majeed and the Pakistani cricketers accused in a 150,000 pound spot-fixing scandal.


London, Sep 5: A British tabloid has revealed that a trail of texts could help Scotland Yard nail London-based bookie Mazher Majeed and the Pakistani cricketers accused in a 150,000 pound 'spot-fixing' scandal.

One text from Majeed's brother, Azhar, on March 25, reads: "Let's get f*****g hold of cricket and squeeze everything we can from it."n reply to the text, Majeed replied: "Exactly the attitude I wanted from you yesterday."According to News of The World, a number of messages sent to numbers around the world - including US, India, Italy, Switzerland and the United Arab Emirates - could hold the key to unravelling the scandal.

"Messages have been sent and received from a vast range of contacts. We are working quickly to establish whether codes were used in these text messages, who they were sent to and where they were sent," the tabloid quoted a source close to the investigation, as saying.

During the undercover investigation, the tabloid also claims that Majeed also explained how he changed his mobile phone and SIM card every fortnight in an effort to cover his tracks.

"We change our phones, and the thing is... you've got to get rid of the sim and the phone separately," Majeed told the tabloid's reporter.

It is also claimed that in the days before the start of Pakistan's Test series against England, Majeed allegedly ran up a four-figure phone bill.
