Nairobi: The International Cricket Council's anti-corruption unit has cleared all Kenyan cricketers and officials of any involvement in the match-fixing scandal. ICC's Chief Executive Malcolm Speed said there is no evidence to prove that any Kenyan player other than Maurice Odumbe received benefits from bookmakers or was involved in match-fixing. The investigation followed the trial of former Kenyan captain Maurice Odumbe last year, which resulted in him being handed a five-year ban for his alleged association with an Indian bookmaker. Claims were made at the time which resulted in the ICC moving in.
