Eng, Pak & Aus Cricketers Involved in Spot-Fixing: Al Jazeera

26 spot-fixes in 15 international matches during 2011-12, claims Al Jazeera's documentary - Cricbuzz Spot-fixing: ECB rejects claims against England players in new documentary

"Cricket Australia's Integrity Unit have conducted a review of the latest claims by Al Jazeera, from a known criminal source, and, from the limited information provided by Al Jazeera", outgoing chief executive James Sutherland said in August.

The documentary, Cricket's Match Fixers: The Munawar Files, claims to have evidence of fixed passages of play on which bets were placed, which were arranged by Aneel Munawar, an alleged fixer about whom the ICC is...

"The Munawar Files" is based on some revelations by Aneel Munawar, who claimed that up to 15 global matches in the 2011-12 period had been subject to spot-fixing.

In the programme we see Munawar photographed in the vicinity of some of the world's greatest cricketers during the World T20 tournament in Sri Lanka in 2012, which should never be taken as evidence of implicating those cricketers.

The report based on Al Jazeera's investigative documentary released on Sunday (October 21) claims that Aneel Munawar, an alleged match-fixer on ICC's radar, had been involved in 26 spot-fixing instances in six Tests, six ODIs and three World T20 matches between 2011-12, .

"As you would expect we will again take the contents of the programme and any allegations it may make seriously and will investigate fully".

New York Police Department halts use of bodycams after 1 explodes
As a result, the department has suspended the use and distribution of the LE-5 model cameras effective immediately, police said. Officers who had been assigned the LE-5 cameras were told to immediately remove the devices and hand them in.

The Al Jazeera television network said it had uncovered evidence of corruption in global cricket, including "a small group" of England players in seven matches between 2010 and 2012.

A television documentary claiming one of the Black Caps rare test wins over Australia was tainted by match fixing are being dismissed as simply "unsubstianted allegations" by New Zealand Cricket.

The second documentary released on Monday morning identifies three Australian ODI matches and two test matches as matches to have been marred by spot-fixing.

Al Jazeera insist they ran the conversations past forensic speech analysts, who concluded the recordings had not been tampered with.

"There is no suggestion that these players were involved in match-fixing", it added.

"Congratulations for the Ashes". Last payment is ready for going in the account.

Postal workers could strike
The Canadian Union of Postal Workers (CUPW) says rotating strikes are set to begin in four locations tomorrow morning. That's why the looming Canada Post strike has Canadians anxious about what they should expect come Monday.

Among the matches cited were England against India at Lord´s, South Africa versus Australia in Cape Town, and several games during England´s series against Pakistan in the United Arab Emirates. Out of the 26 predictions he made with regards to the outcome 25 turned out to be correct.

"Whilst the limited information we have been given by Al Jazeera is poorly prepared and lacks clarity and corroboration, it has been properly assessed", the European Central Bank said. The scope to manipulate a game of cricket for betting purposes has been with us for two centuries or more and any reminder of that is a useful deterrent.

International Cricket Council's (ICC) Anti-Corruption Unit General Manager, Alex Marshall has said that the cricket's international body is seriously combating corruption in the wake of recent corruption allegations made against it.

"ECB takes its responsibilities on anti-corruption and preserving the integrity of cricket very seriously", its statement said.

The ECB said analysis by their integrity team of the "limited information" handed to them by Al Jazeera "cast no doubt on the integrity or behaviour of any England player, current or former".

"We have full confidence in our players in also protecting the game, and we are working closely with the ACA to keep them informed of any developments".

Trump Administration Moves to Exclude Transgender People from Civil Rights Protections
The Human Rights Campaign, a prominent LGBTQ rights group, called on the Trump administration to reverse its course. But the paper points outs that other court decisions have gone in favor of the Obama administration's position.

"Due to the seriousness of the allegations Al Jazeera has uncovered, it is planning to provide Interpol with a copy of "The Munawar Files"," the documentary stated.
