Former England captain Nasser Hussain said the conviction of three Pakistan cricketers in the spot-fixing scam has made him wonder if he had been part of any dodgy games during his career.

Recollecting the infamous Centurion Test between South Africa and England in 1999-2000 series, in which Cronje is said to have accepted money from a bookmaker for making an early declaration, Hussain said, "It's common knowledge now that Hansie Cronje needed to ensure a positive result on the last day of the Test . I might have been a bit naive back then, when I thought I'd helped set up a historic run-chase that was for the good of the game.

"But I'm not naive enough to have spent the last few years with my head in the clouds believing that everything else during my time was completely clean," said Hussain.
