The International Cricket Council has concluded there was "no compelling evidence" to suspect anyone of wrongdoing in the third one-day international game between England and Pakistan.
The ICC launched an investigation last month into the match at The Oval based on information passed on by British tabloid The Sun, which suggested a scoring pattern in Pakistan's innings was prearranged.
The investigation came on the heels of a previous fixing scandal on Pakistan's tour, when a player agent allegedly received money for organizing players to bowl no-balls at prearranged times during the fourth and final test so as to fix spot betting markets. In a statement Wednesday, the ICC says the investigation into the matter was now closed but could be reopened should "new and corroborating evidence" emerge.
