The recently-concluded ZimbabweWest Indies Test series has taken center stage once again. In a recent development by ICC, Anti-Corruption Unit (ACU) is investigating an incident from the two-match series, won by West Indies (1-0). Zimbabwe skipper Graeme Cremer had rebuffed an approach by a former Zimbabwe Cricket board member to fix elements of the Test series. This is the second such instance in less than a month. Earlier, Pakistan skipper Sarfraz Ahmed was also approach during the Sri Lanka ODIs in UAE, leading to an investigation.

“While we do not comment on the specifics of ACU investigations while they are underway, I can confirm that an investigation is underway in Zimbabwe”, stated an ICC spokesperson.

Cremer informed head coach Heath Streak of the exchange, and the matter was elevated through Zimbabwe Cricket to the ICC. The ACU is also busy investigating Indian curator Pandurang Salgaoncar, who was caught up in a sting operation by a television news channel ahead of the second ODI between India and New Zealand in Pune.
