This is the exact same story I just read about the Australian 2016 Tour. Word for word pretty much

Has the groundsman seen us bat? Not sure much doctoring required...

Dunno.  If they want tohe game to end on the fourth day, they'd have to prepare an absolute road!  :D

Link below is to the Al Jazeera match fixing undercover documentary that everyone is talking about. I haven't watched it all as it's 55 mins long. But the start certainly shows the undercover nature of it.

I have now watched the whole thing and OMG they basically say without naming names that 3 England players fixed during the Chenni test and 2 Australia players fixed during the Ranchi test. Over to you ICC.

They really shouldn't be allowed to put this twaddle out there if they won't put their money where their mouth is and name names.

The problem is for the 3 England players and 2 Aussies there will now be a clamour to find out there identity which is hugely unfair as there is no evidence.

I don't believe myself any of these players are involved in fixing so the claims are far fetched and just named as a boast during negotiations with journalist.

I'm less sure about the pitch in Galle being doctored, there could be something in that, but again a lot of claims about what they could and couldn't do to the pitch....

England and Australia struggled to stay in against the spinners let alone decide what rate to score at.

There were a few new faces on that tour whom you might consider more vulnerable than others. The only interesting thing in the Chennai test was Moeen's 140 really.

Cook, Root, Moeen, Anderson, Bairstow, Broad, Stokes, Woakes, Ansari, Batty, Jennings, Hameed, Ball, Ballance, Buttler, Dawson, Duckett, Rashid, Finn.

Like you say it is a problem now the allegations have been made and the now the attention it brings even if it is a load of rubbish.

It is actually quite easy to work out who the are accusing. Both supposed fixes happened on day 1 of each test when England and Australia were batting. And in both cases only the top 6 batted on that day.
