Umpire rejected £10,000 spot-fix offer

Ex-umpire John Holder admits to BBC's Test Match Special programme that he rejected an offer of £10,000 to influence an international match in 1993.

Holder, who stood in 11 Tests, turned down the money to manipulate a one-day international between Sri Lanka and Pakistan in Sharjah.

Barbados-born Holder's revelation comes amid a spot-fixing scandal that has rocked the Indian Premier League.
