'Spot-fixing' not confined to Pak cricket, operates out of Mumbai: Imran Khan

Former Pakistan captain Imran Khan fears that the menace of spot-fixing might be going on uninterrupted in many countries, and was not just a problem confined to Pakistan cricket.


Karachi, Sep 5: Former Pakistan captain Imran Khan fears that the menace of 'spot-fixing' might be going on uninterrupted in many countries, and was not just a problem confined to Pakistan cricket.

"I still fear that there is no way to stop this problem of betting and spot fixing. How can anyone tell that something is wrong if a batsman plays a maiden over or if a bowler bowls a no-ball," The Daily Times quoted Imran, as saying.

"We really don't know the scale of this problem at the moment. There are only allegations against our players, but one thing I know is that if Scotland Yard is involved then they will reach a fair conclusion," he added.

He also accused India of being the country, where the menace gains momentum.

"The trail always leads to India because the real betting mafia operates out of Mumbai. I remember when we used to tour India we used to hear a lot of about how players had been approached by bookmakers to fix matches," he added.

Imran further said that he had warned the Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) in 1994, and had told the officials to take exemplary action against some players accused of indulging in match-fixing.

"I told them this is the time to root out this disease. I think that perhaps if at that time the board had taken decisive action we would never have seen this problem emerge again in our cricket," he added.
