Pakistan Cricket Match Fixing

A bookie involved in a cricket spot-fixing scandal that has rocked the Pakistan tour of England has implicated four Pakistan players:  Kamran Akmal, Umar Akmal, Wahab Riaz and Imran Farhat. 

The bookie has denied the involvement of Pakistan limited-over skipper Shahid Afridi, former captain Younis Khan, all-rounder Abdul Razzak and off-spinner Saeed Ajmal in any fixing.

London tabloid News of The World had also reported on the involvement of Salman Butt, Mohammad Asif and Mohammad Amir in the spot-fixing scandal.  It claimed that Asif and Amir were paid to fix the opening day match of the Lord’s Test between Pakistan and England by deliberately bowling no-balls.

An investigation into the cricket fixing scandal is ongoing and being carried out by law enforcement and the Cricket Counsil.  No player has been charged in association with this case.

Implicated player Kamran Akmal has been left out of the Twenty20 and Test squads announced on Tuesday for next month's tour of New Zealand as a result of intensive investigations into alleged match-fixing that spread beyond the England tour.

In early September 2010 The International Cricket Council sent an official notice to the Pakistan wicketkeeper that he is under investigation for allegedly fixing the Sydney Test during the tour of Australia.

From Wikipedia: 

In the 2nd Test match on the 2009-10 tour of Australia, Akmal dropped four catches in the Australian innings, three of those coming from Michael Hussey. Hussey went on to score 134* and was involved in a massive 9th wicket partnership stand of 133 runs with Peter Siddle. Pakistan eventually went on to lose the match by 36 runs, after being dismissed for just 139 in the second innings.
