Kingston: The head of the West Indies Cricket Board said he would not comment on an Indian government report that allegedly accuses former West Indies captain Brian Lara and others of involvement in a match-fixing scandal. "So far all we can hear is sources saying this and that without a shred of evidence," board president Pat Rousseau was quoted as saying in 'The Observer' newspaper on Tuesday. "Until we do, it is unfair to fuel the rumour mill." Cricket board chief executive Gregory Shillingford told AP on Tuesday that British investigators had interviewed Lara. Shillingford said he believed they were seeking evidence against an alleged bookmaker. "It was simply a matter of Brian verifying that he had been approached by an Indian bookmaker during one of his stopovers in London and that he had told the man he wanted nothing to do him," Shillingford said. Lara has denied any involvement. He was scheduled to leave Jamaica last night with the West Indies for their tour in Australia
