ICC launches probe on World Cup match fixing claims

The UK Sunday Times has reported that the International Cricket Council is probing claims that the World Cup semi-final between India and Pakistan might have been fixed.

The UK newspaper also claims that Indian bookmakers tried to influence World Cup matches last year and it had uncovered evidence that tens of thousands of pounds was on offer to players to throw part or all of international matches, including last year's World Cup semi-final between India and Pakistan.

The newspaper claims that about 44,000 Pounds offered to batsmen for slow scoring, 55,000 Pounds offered to bowlers for conceding runs, 750,000 Pounds for a player or official who guarantee match outcome.
