Match fixing claims cheap way to get publicity

The new report in the Sunday Times is nothing but a wave of hot air if the Delhi bookie cannot give more substantiative details about which match was fixed and how.
In all probability, him talking about the new market that is English county cricket could be just a line to sell the English reporter to get him onboard, assuming he did the sting operation as a potential customer or the likes thereabout.
The ICC has been right to dismiss claims about the India-Pakistan match being rigged which was only slipped in without more information in the story just to attract attention.
Another poor attempt by English media to look down patronisingly at the expense of the third world, I would say.
