    CRICKET chiefs launched an investigation during England's one-day match against Pakistan yesterday amid fears it was fixed by an illegal betting syndicate.

    The International Cricket Council acted after a Sun probe exposed evidence apparently showing that bookies knew details of Pakistan's innings BEFORE the match even began.
    Incredibly, it comes after three Pakistani stars had already been sent home in disgrace amid claims of match-fixing.
    The new investigation will centre on suspicious scoring patterns in Pakistan's innings and on two suspect overs during yesterday's match at The Oval.
    Illegal bookies in India and Dubai apparently knew in advance what would happen so they could launch a betting coup.
    But The Sun's undercover team was able to pass details to ICC inspectors before the match began.
    Cricket chiefs then watched as Pakistan's score mirrored the target that bookies had been told in advance by a fixer.
    It is not thought that the overall result was fixed, only scoring rates in parts of Pakistan's innings. Pakistan eventually won by 23 runs.
    The scandal centres on whether the match was manipulated by underground bookies to cash in on a popular bet among punters in India, where betting is illegal.
    Gamblers like to bet on how many runs will be scored in each ten-over session of an innings.
    Bookies cash in by knowing in advance what will happen, then offering odds that tempt punters to back the wrong result - or by placing bets with other bookies backing what they know will happen.

    The dramatic probe began after The Sun received details of calls between a notorious Dubai-based match fixer and a Delhi bookie. We alerted ICC corruption busters led by ex-police chief Sir Ronnie Flanagan. After a frantic round of calls the ICC decided to issue a general warning to Pakistan's players, but by then the game had started.
    The Sun is withholding details of the alleged fix while the investigation continues - but we can reveal that horrified ICC chiefs launched their investigation before the Pakistan innings had even finished. The probe centres on an individual within the team camp who is believed to be the ringleader, taking money from bookies and ensuring their orders are carried out.
    ICC chief executive Haroon Lorgat last night thanked The Sun for its investigation and pledged tough action on any players found guilty.
    The Sun can reveal the ICC is also investigating whether the same cartel rigged a Test between Pakistan and Australia in July after allegedly paying players £700,000.
    Pakistan's Test captain Salman Butt, 25, and bowlers Mohammad Asif, 27, and Mohammad Amir, 18, flew home after the News of the World revealed no-balls were deliberately sent down in the Lord's Test. Wicketkeeper Kamran Akmal is also under investigation. All deny any wrongdoing.

    Totally agreed. If anyone fixed this match it has to be England, you can't fix a match to win it..unless opponents throw a match and are equally involved.

    I think Indian and rest of the world is trying to isolate and may be ban Pakistan from international scene I am pretty sure this is whats happening. I would not be surprised if they ban us under these false pretexts.

    On Pakistan's last tour to England, while playing (and winning) test match at Oval, there was ball tampering controversy, started by Darrell Hair.
    Then in t20 cup last year, when Pakistan was playing (and won) against New Zealand at Oval, Vettori suggested that Umer Gul was involve in ball tampering.
    Then after Pakistan's last test match at Oval which Pakistan also won, came latest spot fixing scandal.
    Then came this ODI at Oval, Pakistan won again and yet another issue raised.

    I wonder is it Oval or what :D

    Whenever ICC start investigating a match they never disclose that they are doing it or not. And when Pakistan's match is being investigated they first release a statement then investigate.

    We have to understand the policies of biased English media. These ****ing newspapers are owned by blackmailers and ICC start investigation just on media reports. PCB needs a strong leadership not a gang of maraasis like EJAZ BUTT.

    Shame on ICC and english media. I think Umar Gul might be the next target of ICC...bcoz now he has started performing well. English captain Strauss was feeling helpless against Pakistani pace attack during test matches. Now he is scoring runs after Aamir and Asif removal. England should stop these cheap tactics.
    Pakistan cricket will continue to suffer till
    Sharad Pawar remainas ICC cheif. Its time to open the inquiry of Srilankan team attacked during their visit to pakistan.
    We need a courageuos PCB management, not a lazy person like Ijaz Butt.

    U r right bro. But, i have heard that now UK is seriously thinking about its policy of asylum after the death of Imran Farooq. Cuz, now, they will have to provide extra security to these bhagoras and UK taxpayers will pay for this extra security! I think that UK taxpayers should force their govt to deport these thugs to their respective countries!
