The International Cricket Council says it has found no evidence of match-fixing surrounding the third Ashes Test last year between Australia and England in Perth.

The Sun newspaper published a story last year which claimed they had been offered information from two bookmakers relating to match-fixing during the day-night game.

But following an investigation into the matter, the ICC are confident there is no basis to the allegations.

"We have carried out an extensive global investigation with anti-corruption colleagues from Member countries based on the allegations in The Sun and the material they shared with us," ICC general manager - anti-corruption Alex Marshall said in a statement.

"I am satisfied that there is no evidence to suggest any match has been corrupted by the individuals in the investigation nor is there any indication that any international players, administrators or coaches have been in contact with the alleged fixers."
