One of the umpires involved in the sting was alleged to have provided pre-match information relating to a domestic Twenty20 match - the state of the pitch, the playing XIs and the result of the toss - and had allegedly been paid Rs 15,000 (US$285) for it. On the Skype video, he can be heard promising the same information for a World Twenty20 practice game, which included a pitch report 90 minutes before the start of the match, as well the result of the toss.
When an umpire makes a promise like that to strangers over skpye, one has to wonder whether he was serious about this or just playing along to see where it will get to.
