If you’re a cricket player you might want to sell your mobile phone before officials confiscate it following reports that one player hid his handset under his helmet during one international game.

Carrying a mobile phone during international matches is forbidden under the ICC regulations because it could incite match-fixing if players were able to communicate outside of the field.

And now, one former Pakistani cricket has accused another unnamed national played of storing a mobile beside his right earpiece while he was waiting to bat during an international match and tipped off the International Cricket Council’s Anti-Corruption and Security Unit.

The Daily Telegraph quotes the former Test player saying: "My reaction was one of disbelief. I had reason to suspect things were going on in international cricket, and you never had total confidence in certain games because of the rumours about match fixing and spot fixing. But when I was told about this player with the mobile inside his helmet, I was flabbergasted."

The news comes out after it was discovered that three Pakistani players were involved in spot fixing during the Lord’s Test. The tabloids names skipper Salman Butt and pace bowlers Mohammad Asif and Mohammad Amir as the culprits and they have been handed a temporary suspension.

If you want to make cash from your mobile, we suggest recycling your phone and not using it to fix matches.
