ICC investigating 3rd Pak-Eng ODI

New Delhi: British Tablod The Sun reported on Saturday that the International Cricket Council has ordered a probe into Friday\'s ODI match between England and Pakistan after fresh allegations of match-fixing.

The tabloid claimed that two overs of the game were fixed and added that bookies new details of Pakistan\'s innings before the match even began. \"The new investigation will centre on suspicious scoring pattenrs in Pakistan\'s innings and on two suspect overs during yesterday\'s match at The Oval,\" the paper wrote.

The paper also said that illegal bookies in India and Dubai apparently knew in advance, but The Sun\'s \"undercover team was able to pass details to ICC inspectors before the match began\".

However, Pakistan Cricket Board chairman Ijaz Butt said no action would be taken against players till there was proof.

He told CNN-IBN, \"We are not going to act into the allegations without any proof. ICC is still investigating into the matter. Unless and until I get the proof to the allegations made on the players, we are not going to take any action against the players. There had been no communication from ICC to us on the matter.\"

Pakistan, who had lost the first two ODIs, came back to win the third by 23 runs at The Oval with Umar Gul sending down a spell of 6/42. England lead the five-match series 2-1.
