Internet Desk: A Delhi age-group cricketer, named Priyank Saxena has been caught in the Ashes spot-fixing controversy which is in news for last couple days as ‘The Sun’ claimed that they have some evidences that some bookies said that they can fix the ongoing third Test match. The father of that cricketer though claimed that, his son has never visited England and Australia and all the allegations are nothing but just rubbish.

Though, the parent body of World Cricket, ICC’s Anti-Corruption Unit has clarified that there has not been any evidence of corruption in the ongoing Test in Perth.

“My son has never been to UK or England and they (The Sun) are claiming that he could have fixed an Ashes Test,” Baljeet Joban said on Friday.

“…he only goes to Dubai and Russia. Russia, because he has a Russian girlfriend whom he will marry,” added Joban Senior, who runs Lal Bahadur Shastri Coaching Centre (not the famous LB Shastri Club of which Gautam Gambhir is a part).

His club is located in Vikaspuri.

“Right now, I am not letting Sobers speak to anyone. No one from ICC ACU has contacted us,” he informed.

In the sting, Joban was seen with Saxena, who was hauled up by cops last year for an alleged fraud case wherein the latter had promised to get a woman cricketer a break in a state team.

To this Baljeet’s reply was: “I can’t keep track of everything that my adult son does. I don’t know about his friend circle. All I know this is a part of a larger conspiracy.”
