    World Cup 2011 clouded by spot fixing?

    As per a report by IBN7, 21 players from 5 nations ( England, Sri Lanka, Pakistan, Australia & West Indies ) are under serious scanner for spot fixing. Investigation agencies has traced some phone calls which were involved in some illegal activities and the same numbers reached some of the players rooms as well :

    +44 208673 xxxx
    +44 208675 xxxx
    +254 040320 xxxx

    Calls were made to Ahmedabad, Bangalore, Nagpur.

    2 senior Australian players were seen with a bookie in an Ahmedabad hotel ahead of the Zimbabwe game.

    7 games are being considered as fixed.

    Some of the international journalist are under radar as well as its very easy for journalists to get in touch with players.

    Phewwwwwwwwwww! Hopefully this is not true.

    I saw it on IBN7 ( A well reputed news channel in India ). It was an exclusive by their editorial team. I am unable to find anything on their website yet.

    Sounds like a lot of speculation.

    Big difference between spot-fixing and actual match fixing btw.

    Would love to see some 5 and 10 year bans thrown out if the allegations are true.

    Talking about things like that is pointless after such a sketchy report.

    If it turns out to be bollocks, hopefully the ****s at the news channel are taken to the cleaners for defamation.

    I understand why people want to discuss match and spot-fixing reports. Just to remind people, if this goes beyond discussing media reports and into unsubstantiated mud-slinging against players then the thread will be closed.
