CRICKET chiefs launched an investigation during England's one-day match against Pakistan yesterday amid fears it was fixed by an illegal betting syndicate.
The International Cricket Council acted after a Sun probe exposed evidence apparently showing that bookies knew details of Pakistan's innings BEFORE
the match even began.
Incredibly, it comes after three Pakistani stars had already been sent home in disgrace amid claims of match-fixing.
The new investigation will centre on suspicious scoring patterns in Pakistan's innings and on two suspect overs during yesterday's match at The Oval.
Illegal bookies in India and Dubai apparently knew in advance what would happen so they could launch a betting coup.
But The Sun's undercover team was able to pass details to ICC inspectors before the match began.
