The International Cricket Council (ICC) has given a clean chit in the matter, rejecting the attempt of spot-fixing in India in 2016, against England and 2017 in Australia. The ICC said that the TV channel’s allegations are fundamentally weak. The match against England was held in Chennai and against Australia in Ranchi. The ICC issued a statement saying that the ICC has closed the investigation conducted after the program ‘Cricket Match Fixers’ shown by Al Jazeera on 27 May 2018. Nobody is charged under the Anti-Corruption Code for not having sufficient credible evidence. “
Experts did not see anything wrong
The ICC said that it had called four betting and cricket experts for the case but did not see anything wrong in it. “Four independent betting and cricket experts were called by the ICC to investigate the passages shown in the program,” the statement said. All four people came to the conclusion that there was no credible evidence of the aspect shown in the program. The 2018 documentary showed that a group of English and Australian cricketers were allegedly involved in spot-fixing.

Not enough evidence
ICC general manager Alex Marshall said in a statement that they welcome reporting of current corrupt activities within cricket.

The claims made in this program are impossible and also lack credibility. The four independent directors have also confirmed this.
