Caught Out exposes a staggering catalogue of revelations about the way international cricket is being contaminated by crooked players, ruthless gamblers and bent officials. It brings together appalling scandals involving the biggest names in the sport who have deliberately cheated, often under enormous pressure from gambling gangs who threaten serious physical harm and even abduction if their orders are not carried out. These riveting revelations will shock and disgust all those who play cricket honestly at every level whether it is at school, a local club, county level, or at the top in the international arena. Icons are named and shamed in a series of disclosures that zoom in on match-fixing, spot-fixing, cocaine smuggling, chilling death threats, kidnapping, ferocious betting, and high-class prostitutes paraded as additional rewards for players who cheat for illegal bookmakers. A string of amazing exposes will grip and alarm anyone, whether close to cricket or not; even if only having a modicum of interest in the integrity of those who compete and officiate in sport.
