Aussie players not involved in IPL match-fixing: CA

CA's rebuttal came after British newspaper 'The Times' reported that of the 29 players cited by the ICC's anti-corruption and security unit for suspected involvement in match or spot-fixing, it was "thought there are two Australians" on the list.

The newspaper quoted an unnamed source as saying that "some betting patterns were very suspicious at IPL 2" which was held in South Africa last year.

"We don't have any knowledge of this. The ICC tells us they don't have any knowledge either," CA chief spokesman Peter Young was quoted as saying by 'The Sydney Morning Herald'.

Nineteen Australians played in the Twenty20 event last year and inaugural IPL champions' Rajasthan Royals' skipper-cum-coach Shane Warne said he is confident that the event was corruption-free.

"In the time I have played in the IPL, I have never been approached or heard anything at the Royals regarding match-fixing," said Warne.
