Secret recording shown at cricket match-fixing trial

A court has heard that a cricket agent asked for $1.2m (£768,000) to arrange for Pakistan to throw a Test match against England.

The jury at Southwark Crown Court has been listening to secret recordings involving the investigative journalist Mazhar Mahmood, the so-called Fake Sheikh.

Fast bowler Mohammad Asif and Pakistan's former Test captain Salman Butt deny conspiracy to cheat and conspiracy to accept corrupt payments.

The BBC's James Pearce reports.
