Lara cleared of charges

Port of Spain: West Indian Brian Lara has been cleared of involvement in match-fixing following an investigation, the West Indies Cricket Board (WICB) said Monday.

The investigation followed an Indian criminal report saying that a bookmaker had offered or paid money to nine non-Indian players including Lara. Lara always denied the allegations.

“The investigation carried out by prominent Barbadian attorney-at-law Elliott Mottley found no evidence in support of the allegations made against Lara contained in the report of India’s CBI on Cricket Match Fixing and Related Malpractices, dated November 2, 2000,” WICB said in a statement.
