A Sheffield man has been quizzed as part of a probe into international cricket match spot-fixing.

The man, who is in his 30s, was arrested on suspicion of bribery offences.

Officers from the National Crime Agency arrested him yesterday morning in Sheffield as part of an ongoing investigation which saw two other men, including Pakistan cricketer Nasir Jamshed, arrested on Monday.

All three men have since been bailed pending further enquiries.

The NCA said earlier this month that it was working on an investigation with the Pakistan Cricket Board and the International Cricket Council's anti-corruption units.

A spokesman said the Pakistan Cricket Board had launched its own investigation, which had resulted in the suspension of three players.
