CA challenges Al Jazeera over new spot-fixing claims

Melbourne, Aug 28 (Agencies) | Publish Date: 8/28/2018 12:05:10 PM IST

Cricket Australia has urged Al Jazeera to provide information relating to alleged corruption in cricket to the International Cricket Council.

The Qatar-based television station is planning to produce a follow-up to the documentary released earlier this year that made several spot-fixing allegations.

The latest offering is set to involve claims against current and former Australia internationals relating to historical matches from 2011.

“We are aware of the new investigative documentary by Al Jazeera into alleged corruption in cricket,” Cricket Australia CEO James Sutherland said.

“Since the broadcast of Al Jazeera’s first documentary, the ICC Anti-Corruption Unit has been conducting a thorough investigation into the claims made, however this has been hampered by a lack of cooperation from Al Jazeera.”

“Although not having been provided an opportunity to review any raw audio or footage, our long-standing position on these matters is that credible claims should be treated very seriously, and investigated.”

“Cricket Australia’s Integrity Unit have conducted a review of the latest claims by Al Jazeera, from a known criminal source, and, from the limited information provided by Al Jazeera, our team have not identified any issues of corruption relating to current or former Australian players. We urge Al Jazeera to provide all un-edited materials and any other evidence to the ICC Anti-Corruption Unit.”
