The CPS will now decide whether to press charges of conspiracy to defraud over claims that three Pakistan cricketers, Salman Butt, Mohammad Asif and Mohammad Amir, accepted bribes to fix certain aspects of the Lord’s Test against England.

Detectives interviewed four players under caution – Wahab Riaz met police earlier this week – and arrested Mazher Majeed, a British businessman, following the publication of an expose in the News of the World. The newspaper claimed it had paid Majeed £150,000 to fix the bowling of no-balls in the fourth Test.
