ICC investigates match fixing

Then International Cricket Council (ICC), cricket’s world governing body, is investigating an approach made to Zimbabwe captain Graeme Cremer to fix parts of the recent two-Test series against the West Indies.

Media reports said the Cremer had rejected the approach, allegedly from a former Zimbabwe Cricket board member prior to the first Test on Oct. 21, 2017 and reported the incident to head coach Heath Streak.

The matter was referred to Zimbabwe Cricket and then to the ICC who has since confirmed that its Anti-Corruption Unit was investigating.

The Test, played at Queen’s Sport Club in Bulawayo, saw the West Indies win by an innings and 17 runs inside four days.

However, Zimbabwe hung on for a draw in the second Test at the same venue, leaving the Caribbean side with a 1-0 series win.
