The International Cricket Council (ICC) has confirmed that it is investigating an approach made to Zimbabwe captain Graeme Cremer to fix parts of the recent two-Test series against the Windies.Reports suggested that Cremer had rejected an approach said to be made by a former member of the Zimbabwe Cricket board prior to the first Test on October 21.Cremer reported the matter to Zimbabwe Head Coach Heath Streak. It was also reported to the Zimbabwe Cricket Board and subsequently to the Anti-Corruption Unit of the ICC.“The ICC can confirm that there is an ACU ongoing investigation in Zimbabwe and because there is an ongoing investigation, I cannot share any further details,” said an ICC spokesperson in reference to the matter.The Test, played at Queen’s Sports Club in Bulawayo, saw the Windies win by an innings and 17 runs inside four days.Zimbabwe, however, hung on for a draw in the second Test at the same venue, leaving the Caribbean side with a 1-0 series win.
