An alleged cricket bookie was nabbed from the international airport in Hyderabad by a Delhi Police team in the early hours on Friday.

"One person identified as Yahya Mohammad has been picked up from the Rajiv Gandhi International Airport (RGIA) in connection with the cricket betting racket by the Delhi Police team in the wee hours," a senior police official said.

Mohammad was picked up by police while he was trying to board a flight to Dubai, the official said.

At least 18 people -- three T20 players, four former players and 11 bookies and their assistants -- have been arrested in connection with the T20 spot-fixing scandal that has rocked the cricketing world. Chandila, Sreesanth and Ankit Chavan are the three T20 players who were arrested.
