Pakistan Cricket Match Fixing Scandal

Mazhar Majeed, the bookmaker who alleges that various Pakistani cricket players were involved in a high profile match-fixing scandal, has been served legal papers by one of those he accuses. Pakistani Test opener Imran Farhat became the first player to do so on Wednesday.

"The notice will be delivered to Mazhar Majeed in person and we have asked him to either tender an unconditional apology or face a suit for damages," Farhat said.  "I can't tolerate anyone making such allegations against me and trying to defame me.”

The bookie implicated four players, including Farhat Kamran Akmal, Umar Akmal and Wahab Riaz and claimed he was representing the said individuals. 

Mazhar worked as an agent for several Pakistani players.  He claimed last August to have bribed Pakistani cricketers Salman Butt, Mohammad Aamer and Mohammad Asif to deliberately bowl no-balls in the fourth Test against England at Lords.  All three players were later suspended.
