Watch Pakistani Players Match Fixing Scandal Video in England. A man has been arrested in connection with an alleged cricket betting scam carried out during the current test between Pakistan and England at Lord’s.
A 35-year-old man has been arrested after allegedly being caught offering to fix part of England’s current cricket Test match with Pakistan.
Mazher Majeed allegedly offered to bribe certain Pakistani bowlers to manipulate the game, according to the News of the World.
Secret filming appears to show Majeed counting out £150,000 given to him by the newspaper in a London hotel the night, before the current 4th Test at Lord’s.
He then allegedly offers to ask certain bowlers to make sure they bowl “no balls” at specific points in the match.
Posing as businessmen from the Far East, investigators from the paper told Majeed that they were planning to bet on when no balls occurred.
The paper alleges that the no balls were delivered during the Test match exactly as described in the video footage.
The investigation has been passed to the police who in turn have alerted the International Cricket Council, the game’s ruling body.
It is unclear how the allegations will impact on the fourth Test, which is due to resume at Lords on Sunday.
