Cricket's Match Fixers: The Munawar Files

The I-Unit’s second exposé of match-fixing in cricket prompted media coverage across the globe. This included the Times, Guardian, Telegraph and Daily Mail in the UK, and national media in Australia, New Zealand, South Africa, India, Pakistan and Sri Lanka.

Reporter David Harrison’s interviews included an appearance on the BBC’s iconic cricket show, Test Match Special, discussing the investigation with host Jonathan Agnew.

When the game’s governing body, the International Cricket Council (ICC) was informed of the investigation, it launched a worldwide appeal to track down the match-fixer involved, Aneel Munawar. The ICC later launched a full investigation into the revelations.

As calls grew for a criminal investigation, the I-Unit handed a dossier of evidence to Interpol. The investigation is ongoing.
