Hours before the start of the third Ashes Test at Perth, Cricket Australia (CA) dismissed British newspaper The Sun’s claims of match-fixing. James Sutherland held a press conference just minutes before the toss at Perth and rubbished all claims.

Sutherland said: Any credible allegations against corruption will be taken seriously. We have a zero tolerance system. What we heard we heard from the head of the ICC head of anti-corruption is that there is no evidence or substance to these allegations or justification to suspect that this Test is subject to corrupt activities.

On the allegation:

It’s important for everyone to understand that our players are educated on a regular basis about the risks of corruption. There is nothing to suggest based on intelligence we have that there is any reason to be suspicious about any of our players. We have full confidence in them.”

On CA s anti-corruption policy: “Any credible allegations against corruption will be taken seriously. We have a zero tolerance system.”

Sutherland also denied claims of fixing in the Big Bash League.
