LONDON: More striking revelations have come to surface in a forty-hour long video record of key match-fixer Mazhar Majeed obtained by Scott Land Yard police during probe into match-fixing scam, Geo News recorded.
The recording disclosed lately played Sydney Test and Asia Cup too had been fixed by bookies.
Pakistan-Sri Lanka match played in Asia Cup had been scripted completely with runs had to be scored by batsmen, runs conceded by bowlers and almost every action was premeditated.
Earlier, Geo News had voiced concerns over the spirit of that match during which Mohammed Aamir being dressed as a batsman was captured on camera talking to someone on mobile telephone while Shahid Afridi scored century.
Later, ICC, shelving the concerns raised by Geo News, had declined to take action, saying the news were baseless.
Pakistan-Australia Test match played earlier in this year at Sydney Cricket Ground (SCG) was fixed at a time when Aussie had lost 2 wickets on 49 runs, video disclosed.
Mazhar Majeed was shown on video admitting that Test match was fixed as Kangaroos had apparently started falling down rapidly so the betting rate had shot to 1-40th.
This was the same match which saw Kamran Akmal dropped of the squad owing to poor performance with 4-drop catches and missed a run out chance which ended in Pakistanís dramatic defeat.
That Testís fixation earned Mazhar Majeed 1.3 million Pound Sterling, the video showed.
