London:

Twenty nine cricketers, including two Australians are suspected to be involved in spot-fixing at last year's Indian Premier League in South Africa, a leading London newspaper claimed on Sunday.

According to a secret dossier compiled by the ICC's anti-corruption and security unit, the list includes some high-profile names but nobody from England or Pakistan, whose players did not take part due to security issues, 'The Sunday Times' claimed.

"Some betting patterns were very suspicious at IPL 2," the report said quoting a source.

Despite long-standing concerns about the integrity of the IPL - whose commissioner Lalit Modi is suspended amid corruption allegations - England players are expected to be available for the entirety of next year's IPL for first time.

Three Pakistan players - Salman Butt, Mohammad Asif and Mohammad Amir - were suspended by the ICC for their alleged involvement in sport-fixing in the Lord Test and the trio returned home on Saturday.
