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.
