ECB, Cricket Australia dismiss latest fixing claims

The spot-fixing claims made in the second documentary of Al Jazeera's series Cricket's Match-Fixers have been dismissed by both Cricket Australia and the England Cricket Board.

The documentary had alleged that 7 England and 5 Australia players were involved in spot-fixing during 2011-12 period.

"Cricket Australia takes a zero-tolerance approach against anyone trying to compromise the integrity of the game, and to suggest anything otherwise is unsubstantiated and incorrect," CA chief executive James Sutherland said Monday.

"We have full confidence in our players in also protecting the game."

Prior to the latest broadcast, CA's Integrity Unit conducted a review of the claims, which it said came from a "known criminal source".

"From the limited information provided by Al Jazeera, our team have not identified any issues of corruption by any current or former player," said Sutherland.

The ECB was also adamant that the claims lacked credibility.

"Whilst the limited information we have been given by Al Jazeera is poorly prepared and lacks clarity and corroboration, it has been properly assessed," it said in a statement.

"Analysis of this by the ECB integrity team has cast no doubt on the integrity or behaviour of any England player, current or former."
