ICC official has rubbished claimed British bookie’s report that Aussie players were connected in match-fixing, saying the world body had “no proof” of any wrongdoings carried out by the Australians. As per a report in ‘The Australian’, Ex- Scotland Yard police man, Alan Peacock, who’s been with the ICC ‘s ACSU since its inception in Sept 2000, insisted at the Southwark Crown Court on Tuesday, that there was no proof of corruption against Aussie players.
“We have no proof that the Aussies have devoted 10 brackets a day, or any brackets,” Peacock says when Salman Butt’s lawful team told a question as to whether he’d proof that Aussie cricketers fix matches or parts of games.”Most probably the brackets he (Mazhar Majeed) is discussing is what we call session betting. That connected gambling on the runs and wickets scored within a single session of play or a particular number of overs,” he says.
Mazhar Majeed, a players’ agent who was trapped in a sting operation for apparently playing corruption in cricket matches, has said that he understood many worldwide cricketers and that Aussies were “the main” culprits of match-fixing.
The claims have led to furious responses from Aussie cricketers with Nathan Bracken and Ex- skipper Ricky Ponting bluntly refusing Mazhar Majeed’s report that he’d access to both the cricketers. Australian Board also clearly responded to the claims and termed the statements as “outlandish”.
