Former New Zealand National Cricket Captain Cleared Of All Match-Fixing Charges - 2001-07-31

Former New Zealand national cricket captain Martin Crowe has been cleared of all match-fixing charges after an investigation found no evidence of wrongdoing.

The Investigation looked into charges Crowe had received money from an Indian bookmaker in exchange for match information during the 1992 World Cup of Cricket.

Crowe was named in an Indian police report last year as part of a probe into the actions of Indian bookmaker Makesh Gupta. Gupta said he paid Crowe $20,000 for information about weather conditions, the state of the field, and team lineups.

Crowe denied the claims, saying that he had supplied information to a man that he believed was a journalist for a series of articles. He was paid $3,000 for the information.
