Australian cricket players have been embroiled in a match-fixing scandal. An investigation by broadcaster Al Jazeera has raised allegations that two unidentified Australians were paid to score runs slowly during a Test match at Ranchi in India in 2017. The match-fixers are also alleged to have doctored the pitch for a Test between Australia and Sri Lanka in Galle in 2016. Cricket Australia has released a statement saying that it is not aware of any "credible evidence" to suggest that Australian players are involved in match fixing, and that it will fully co-operate with an investigation by the International Cricket Council’s Anti-Corruption Unit.
