ICC Says Man Arrested in Cricket Betting Inquiry

Aug. 29 (Bloomberg) -- The International Cricket Council, the sport’s governing body, said it has been told by police in London that a 35-year-old man has been arrested “on suspicion of conspiracy to defraud bookmakers.”

The police have informed the ICC, the England and Wales Cricket Board and the Pakistan Cricket Board of the investigation, the ICC said in a statement on its website.

The three governing bodies are “fully assisting those enquiries,” the ICC statement said. “No players nor team officials have been arrested in relation to this incident,” it added

The ICC released its statement following publication of allegations in the U.K.’s News of The World tabloid newspaper today.

“The News of the World passed on some information to us,” the Metropolitan Police said in a statement today. “Having considered that we arrested a 35-year-old man yesterday on suspicion of conspiracy to defraud bookmakers.”

The fourth and final Test match between England and Pakistan resumed play as scheduled today at Lords in London.
