The International Cricket Council (ICC) has found no evidence of match-fixing in the third Ashes Test between Australia and England in Perth.
The global cricketing body launched an investigation after The Sun published a story last year, in which they claimed that they had received information from two bookmakers after the match being fixed.
However, following a thorough probe by the ICC, they found nothing to support the allegations made by the British newspaper.
“We have carried out an extensive global investigation with anti-corruption colleagues from Member countries based on the allegations in The Sun and the material they shared with us,” ICC general manager – anti-corruption Alex Marshall said in a statement as quoted by Sky Sports. “I am satisfied that there is no evidence to suggest any match has been corrupted by the individuals in the investigation nor is there any indication that any international players, administrators or coaches have been in contact with the alleged fixers.”
