First England-Pakistan Test at Nottingham also fixed: Reports

The beleaguered Pakistani cricketers may face more problems after it was reported that even the first Test match between Pakistan and England at Nottingham was fixed. England had easily won the first Test match by 354 runs, only days after Pakistan had beaten Australia in the previous game at Headingley.

According to a newspaper in England, Scotland Yard’s Assistant Commissioner Cressida Dick had been informed that some of the Pakistani cricketers could be involved in fixing the first Test match as well.

There was an intelligence report that had said that many of the Pakistani cricketers were fixing events within the game, and Dick was still looking into the information when the English tabloid exposed Mazhar Majeed and the Pakistani cricketers.

Earlier, Majeed, who had been arrested on Saturday, was out on bail on Sunday night. It has also been reported that the mobile phones of all the Pakistani cricketers involved have been confiscated.

The Pakistani players like Asif and Amir had been accused by the Scotland Yard of spot-fixing in the fourth Test match at Lord’s.
