ICC issues rebuke for "false" corruption reports

ICC issues rebuke for "false" corruption reports

The International Cricket Council has taken the rare move of rebuking an Indian newspaper of publishing "misleading and downright false" reports of match fixing at the World Cup.
ICC chief executive Haroon Lorgat issued a statement Wednesday naming a correspondent and a daily English language newspaper for publishing allegations involving a match between defending champion Australia and Zimbabwe "that can only be described as fictional."
Lorgat said the ICC generally didn't comment on the activities of its anti-corruption unit but was forced to "show our displeasure" at the series of false and misleading reports.
He says "It is patently false of the reporter to claim that the ICC ever suggested ... the match was corrupted."
