London: Outgoing ICC Anti-Corruption and Security Unit (ACSU) chief Paul Condon gave a clean chit to the third Indian Premier League and said a probe is on to find out if match-fixing played any part in Pakistan’s tour of Australia earlier in 2010.
Addressing a press conference, Condon, former Commissioner of the Metropolitan Police, said there was nothing to suggest that there was any corruption in IPL III despite rumours.
“IPL III seems to have been a very clean event,” Condon said at Lord’s.
“There were some rumours and vague allegations about match-fixing but no one from within the Indian board, the IPL, the franchises, journalists or players came with any specific allegations about match-fixing in the IPL. All there has been is a generic rumour,” said Condon who would be succeeded by British police official Ronnie Flanagan from July 1.
