International cricket is being contaminated by crooked players, ruthless gamblers and bent officials. This staggering catalogue of revelations exposes appalling scandals involving the biggest names in the sport. Often under enormous pressure from gambling gangs who threaten serious physical harm and even abduction if their orders are not carried out, many of them have frequently and deliberately cheated. These riveting revelations will shock and disgust any fan and honest player, from those in school elevens and local clubs, right up to the sportsmen who play at county and international levels. Caught Out shines a light upon the most extraordinary cricketing tales, including the tragic death of Pakistan coach Bob Woolmer, whose body was discovered in his hotel room; the disgraced former South African captain Hansie Cronje, who was killed in a plane crash in 2002; the terrified Pakistan wicket - keeper who was forced to seek asylum in Britain after fleeing angry bookmakers; and how slippery Enland literally licked the Aussies with Murray Mints to bag the Ashes. Icons are named and shamed, including Salam Butt, Mohammad Asif and Mohammad Amir, in a wealth of disclosures that cover match fixing, spot - fixing, cocaine smuggling, death threats, kidnapping, ferocious betting, and even high - class prostitutes, who are paraded as additional rewards for players who cheat at the behest of illegal bookmakers.
