On June 12, 2000, South Africa cricket chief Ali Bacher said that he had been told by former Pakistan cricket chief executive Majid Khan about the widespread match fixing nexus in Pakistan and that two World Cup matches in 1999, involving Pakistan against India and Bangladesh were fixed. Bacher also gave evidence to the South African Government related to the enquiry. The claims were later rubbished by all the three boards of the Asian countries involved.
