Pak cricketers are innocent, claims UK journalist
British Journalist Ed Hawkins has made yet another claim that the Pakistani cricketers who were earlier believed to be involved in spot fixing are innocent, Geo News reported Monday.
Ed Hawkins, in his soon to be published book ' Bookie Gambler Fixer Spy: Journey to the corrupt heart of cricket's underworld', has claimed that the three Pakistani cricketers including Salman Butt, Mohammad Amir and Mohammad Asif are innocent and that they were schemed in the spot fixing case. He said that in India, fixing in not done on no-balls and therefore, Justice Cook's verdict regarding the involvement of three Pakistani cricketers in spot fixing was unjust. It is pertinent to mention that the three cricketers have already served their sentence in the UK jails for their involvement in spot fixing.
The journalist had earlier claimed that the semi-final between Pakistan and India of the Cricket World Cup 2011 was fixed.
