ICC demands footage as England and Australia players implicated in spot fixing

The International Cricket Council has demanded that Qatari broadcaster Al Jazeera share footage which allegedly shows evidence of spot-fixing carried out by English, Australian and Pakistani players.

The ICC denied claims from Al Jazeera that the body does not take corruption seriously, and questioned the broadcaster’s refusal to release the raw footage of the sting it carried out earlier this year.

Alex Marshall, the ICC’s anti-corruption general manager, called on Al Jazeera to release the footage in order to play “a crucial part in the full and thorough investigation it has called for.”

The channel alleges that the evidence, dating from 2011 and 2012, shows England players carrying out spot-fixes in seven matches, Australia players in five matches, and Pakistan players in three.
