Bookie claims all Pakistan-Eng Tests were fixed

Karachi: Law enforcement agencies here are searching for an unidentified bookmaker, who appeared on a television show and claimed that all the Tests between Pakistan and England last month were fixed.

The bookmaker, whose face was hidden, appeared in a talk show and claimed that there are two yet-to-be-caught players present in the Pakistan team who had been involved in match-fixing in the past.

The bookmaker also claimed that players were purchased by big bookmakers for bigger returns.

His claims come amid the raging controversy of alleged spot-fixing by the suspended Pakistani trio of Test skipper Salman Butt, Mohammad Asif and Mohammad Aamir during the same series.

Reliable source said soon after the interview of the bookmaker was aired, the law enforcement agencies got into action and were trying to locate and identify the man.(PTI)
