ICC launches fresh England-Pakistan fix probe

London: The International Cricket Council has launched an investigation into Friday’s England-Pakistan one-day international after information indicated a scoring pattern was prearranged.

The ICC said on Saturday that the investigation was based on information passed on by The Sun newspaper in England.

In a statement, ICC chief executive Haroon Lorgat said “a source informed The Sun newspaper that a certain scoring pattern would emerge during certain stages of the match and, broadly speaking, that information appeared to be correct.”

The investigation comes after a previous fixing scandal on the tour, when an agent for players allegedly received money in return for organizing players to bowl no-balls at prearranged times so as to fix spot betting markets.
