An investigation into allegations of match-fixing in the third Ashes Testlast year has ended after no evidence of corruption was found.

In December the Sun claimed Indian bookmakers offered to fix aspects of the Test between England and Australia.

The International Cricket Council said "no evidence" of corruption was found in an "extensive global investigation".

Australia won the match in Perth which saw them take an unassailable 3-0 lead in the series.

The Sun reported that a gang, working with an Australian called 'the Silent Man', was charging up to £138,000 to influence the game.

No England players were named as being involved but the gang claimed to have recruited one former Australia player.
