Instance 3:

Australia Vs Zimbabwe:

The Mumbai crime branch busted a match fixing racket from a hotel in Ahmedabad involving three Dawood men, who sneaked into the hotel where the Australian team was put up to play Zimbabwe in the World Cup game on February 21. Sources told TOI that the three D-company men stayed with the Aussie team in a five-star hotel in Satellite area and met them in the lobby where the deal was struck for spot fixing. Australia won the match.

An intelligence input on the day Ahmedabad was fixed as a venue for the quarterfinals, had warned that WC could be a terror target. The police had then told TOI that they would be screening all hotel guests. The Australian team arrived here four days before the match, accompanied by an observer from the International Cricket Council's anti-corruption wing. Intercepts showed that the Dawood men made calls to London, Nairobi and Nagpur. The duration of these calls ranged from 39 seconds to 1.20 minutes. The phone taps also revealed details about the spot fixing. The Mumbai police tipped off the ICC about the match being fixed and the possible outcome. Sources in the anti-corruption wing confirmed that the match was fixed.

Soon after the match, it was reported that the ICC had taken note of the slow batting in the first 10 overs by Australian openers Shane Watson and Brad Haddin. The two openers scored just 28 runs in 11 overs and 53 in 15 overs in a match that Australia won comfortably. However, the slow rate of scoring in the first two powerplays was scrutinised by the ICC's anti-corruption and security unit.

The Australian team, however, rubbished media reports that the ICC was investigating the game.
