SHAUN TAIT STATEMENT RE: ALLEGATIONS OF IMPROPRIETY IN IPL
Rajasthan Royals and former Australian paceman Shaun Tait has welcomed statements from the Delhi police clearing him of any involvement in spot or match fixing in the IPL.
“I’m bewildered, I’m angry and I’m upset at the false suggestions I’ve been involved in any wrongdoing. While I welcome the recent statements from police clearing me of any involvement, for a few hours today I was deeply distressed by the rumours that were rapidly circulating about me, most of which were aired in the social media space. Not only were they without foundation, they highlight the danger of a medium that deals with innuendo rather than fact, the result of which has brought my name into question. At no stage in my career have I engaged in spot or match fixing and I’m in discussions with my manager and legal representatives to examine how this episode unfolded and any further action I may take. I pride myself on playing cricket hard and fair and look forward to continuing my career in this vein.”
