The match in question here is the Test between India and Australia in Ranchi in 2017.

The documentary also captures a groundskeeper at a Sri Lankan venue boasting that staff doctored the pitch in two Test matches.

Cricket Australia chief executive James Sutherland also said there is no credible evidence to prove that two unnamed Australian players were guilty of corruption in a Test against India a year ago following allegations made in the Al Jazeera programme.

The International Cricket Council has already launched an investigation. "He is the assistant manager and curator of the Galle stadium".
