ICC says no list of IPL players under scanner

September 15, 2010 16:34 IST

The International Cricket Council on Wednesday refuted media reports that 29 players who participated in the Indian Premier League are under the scanner of its Anti-Corruption and Security Unit for suspected match-fixing or spot-fixing.

"In particular, over the last 24-36 hours we have noted a number of specific unfounded media allegations about individual players being investigated by the ACSU --  a so-called list of 29 players," ICC CEO Haroon Lorgat said in a mail to individual member boards.

"This is to confirm that there is no such list and we believe it is simply a way that the media is trying to fish for information without any basis for doing so," he added.

"If there were any specific players being investigated by ACSU we would have notified the relevant Member Board."

London-based The Times had reported that 29 players, two of them Australian, were named in a secret dossier, detailing match-fixing and spot-fixing in the IPL's second edition, prepared by the ACSU.

Lorgat advised individual boards to dismiss any queries with regard to the reported dossier.

"Kindly dismiss such queries and if in doubt please refer any media enquiries to the Head of ICC Media and Communications, Colin Gibson," he said.
