Spot fixing: Probe into controversial MCG match likely

The chairman of the International Cricket Councils anti-corruption and security unit, Ronnie Flanagan, has said that ICC could widen its probe into the alleged spot-fixing scandal, to cover the controversial Twenty20 match between Pakistan and Australia at the Melbourne Cricket Ground (MCG) last summer.


Sydney, Sept 5 101: The chairman of the International Cricket Council's anti-corruption and security unit, Ronnie Flanagan, has said that ICC could widen its probe into the alleged 'spot-fixing' scandal, to cover the controversial Twenty20 match between Pakistan and Australia at the Melbourne Cricket Ground (MCG) last summer.

Investigations could cover Pakistan's "dysfunctional" tour of Australia, though at this stage, the unit had no evidence to support match-fixing claims at the MCG, the Sydney Morning Herald quoted Flanagan, as saying.

"We will go where the evidential trail takes us," he added.

Australia beat Pakistan by two runs in the controversial Twenty20 match played at the MCG.

Former Australian batsman Dean Jones said he would not be surprised if the anti-corruption unit went through that match.

"If they are doing their job properly, they should look at every game they played here, every game in the last year," he added.

Jones also raised a critical question whether Pakistan was "the only team implicated in this."

Cricket Australia (CA) general manager affairs Peter Young said the governing body was prepared to help if a new investigation was launched.

The Pakistan cricket team is in the midst of a betting scam, allegedly involving captain Salman Butt and fast bowlers Mohammed Aamir and Mohammed Asif.
