The ICC has reportedly launched an investigation in regards to match-fixing allegations relating to the third Ashes Test which commences in Perth today.
The allegations relate to an undercover sting by the UK Sun who gained footage of two bookmakers via hidden cameras in which the men stated they could spot-fix matches.
The bookies offered to sell information regarding to specific periods of play.
They allege to be working with an Australian “fixer” from the cricketing community known as the “Silent man.”
"Before match. I will tell you this over, this runs and then you have to put all the bets on that over," one of the alleged bookmakers said.
The bookmakers told the undercover reporters they could signal a bet was on via the players' uniforms and actions such as stopping at the end of the pitch after a run-up for a delivery.
“I give you a red watch, you wear a red watch ... A player bowls the over in full T-shirt, that is the signal," the man said.
"A wide, running in and stopping without bowling, so many signals."
Cricket Australia said it welcomed an investigation into the matter.
“The allegations raised by media outlets are of serious concern. Cricket Australia takes a zero-tolerance approach against anybody trying to bring the game into disrepute,” the statement read.
“Cricket Australia will co-operate fully with any ICC Anti-Corruption Unit investigation.
“Australian cricket has a long-standing, proactive approach to sports integrity management and Cricket Australia has a dedicated Anti-Corruption and Security Unit (ACSU) to prevent corruption within Australian domestic competitions, including the BBL.
“In addition to this, all players participating in CA sanctioned competitions, including the BBL, are required to complete an anti-corruption education session before they can compete.
“CA works closely with the ICC ACU on all international fixtures played in Australia.
“Players are able to report any suspicions they have on a confidential basis and in the past there has been a strong Australian player culture to do so.”
