Criminals claim they paid Australian batsmen during test match

It's understood Cricket Australia had contacted players last week to alert them of the allegations.

It also called for the immediate release of any evidence and supporting material to enable the anti-corruption unit to "undertake a full and comprehensive investigation".

CA chief executive James Sutherland said his organisation would investigate credible allegations if they came to hand.

It claimed that particular sessions in the Ranchi and Chennai test matches were "scripted" by players in collusion with match fixers. "It would be wrong to blame that for the way we played".

"The thing Justin said the other day is we want the Australian cricket team to be heroes of young kids in Australia", Paine told reporters in Brisbane.

"Neither the ICC or Cricket Australia is aware of any credible evidence linking Australian players to corruption in the game", Sutherland said in a statement.

The ICC have confirmed they were aware of the allegations.

The Guardian reports that ICC officials are to meet with the Qatar-based broadcaster this week as cricket's governing body seeks all the unedited material sourced during the making of Cricket's Match Fixers, the documentary aired on Sunday which has prompted both Australia and England's cricket boards to refute the allegations.

"A full investigation led by the ICC Anti-Corruption Unit, working with full cooperation from all Member countries identified in the programme, is now underway to examine each claim made". Since the match-fixing crisis of the 1990s, the awareness among players of the problem of fixing, the potential consequences (time in jail and five years out of the game for Mohammad Amir, remember, for nothing more than a newspaper sting) and stringent controls around dressing rooms by the ICC have made it much less likely to be a problem in worldwide cricket. "I'm really confident none of our players are involved".




A Mumbai-based fixer by the name of Aneel Munawar, allegedly from Mafia syndicate D-Company, alleges the final over of a "session" was to be a "manda" - Indian betting slang for an over that has no more than two runs.

The curator of Galle Stadium, Tharanga Indika has already admitted to doctoring pitches.

Asked when the next such fix would be carried out there, Morris replies: "England vs Sri Lanka". The two sides are scheduled to play a Test match at Galle on November 6-10.

The channel said there was no evidence to indicate any other Australia players had been involved or aware of the alleged plot.

Sri Lanka Cricket (SLC) said it would follow ICC guidelines on anti-corruption operations for forthcoming tours.

Although no big-name Sri Lankan player has ever been convicted of corruption, several former stars have made allegations of either match-fixing or spot-fixing - when players deliberately bowl or field badly to give away a set number of runs.

Raza has declined to respond to a request for comment from Al Jazeera but has since denied any connection with match-fixing.

South Africa, however, is actually also indirectly involved in the saga.
