image for English Cricket Rocked By Fixing Allegations
Dirty money, made betting on dirty men

English County cricket has been rocked by allegations of fixing. Essex County Cricket Club are currently being investigated. The allegations center around the admissions policy at county championship matches. It is thought that heavy betting took place on how many men with thermos flasks and sandwiches wrapped in foil would be admitted to a match against Lancashire.

Normally figures are between five and ten. This time over twenty such creatures attended the match. Essex police have been called in after it was revealed that one punter on the Indian sub continent had heavily backed there to be over twenty at the ground.

Inspector Stig O'Toole said "We will be seeking to interview all of those who attended. We are curious as to what filling they had in their sandwiches. Real county cricket anoraks have fish paste. However, one of the Lancashire players swears he saw some cheese and pickle."

Essex County Cricket Club have not commented on these allegations.
