    I just received this from Cricket Australia.

    Please see below a statement released by Shaun Tait via his management at Essentially Australia.

    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.

    Tait said:

    “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.”

    ENDS

    Heard Phil Tait was interviewed about this, unsurprisingly he's as upset as Shaun is. Some seriously twattish Twitter users about who may have put themselves in legal trouble over this. Really, there wasn't even the slightest inkling to suggest he was involved at all, someone just started a rumour out of nowhere.

    I mean, well, you never know but I'd back any of the Taits to be cleaner than Mr Sheen.

    That's what happened with Cronje though. Denied it completely. And then...oops.

    Indians can't bowl - Where has the rumour come from as I myself and many indian friends arwe competent fast bowlers ?

    With the English bid I said: Let us be brief. If you give back the Falkland Islands, which belong to us, you will get my vote. They then became sad and left

    Haha. Such outrage.

    Would be funny if Sreesanth names Stuart Binny.

    Always knew Sreesanth was dodgy. And ****. Turns out he's **** for a multitude of reasons, however.
