Cook is worried

Wellington: England captain Alastair Cook revealed his growing concern regarding the prevalence of spot-fixing within cricket, as fresh evidence of corruption came to light.

Cook’s comments on Monday followed hot on the heels of reports in the British media that Brendon McCullum, the captain of New Zealand, had told the International Cricket Council, that he had been approached to under perform by “a hero” in matches back in 2008.

“You know the tell-tale signs,” Cook said on the eve of their one-off T20 tie against Sri Lanka. “But you can always do more, can’t you, if it is still going on now? It is a worry. It’s obviously a very serious situation,” he said.
