The Ashes Embroiled In Match-Fixing Allegations
The ICC has reportedly launched an investigation over alleged attempts to fix the third Ashes Test in Perth, starting today.
The UK Sun has published purported evidence of bookmakers offering to sell details of rigged periods of play for betting purposes.
"Before match, I will tell you this over, this runs and then you have to put all the bets on that over," a man, who the newspaper claims is a bookmaker, says in purportedly undercover video footage.
During the video information on fixes are heard to be worth around $A200,000.

There is also mention of fixing "four to five" Big Bash League matches.
"We take all allegations of corruption seriously and welcome The Sun's offer to share this information," the ICC is quoted as saying.
