Lord Condon, who set up the International Cricket Council’s anti-corrpution unit in 2001 and chaired it for a decade, told London’s Evening Standard newspaper this week that “every international team, at some stage, had someone doing some funny stuff.”

May reacted angrily on Friday, calling on Lord Condon to provide evidence or withdraw his allegation.

The Australian told reporters “player associations are getting sick and tired of people coming out making these general accusations, the effect of which cast doubts over the entire player base.”
