London: British police investigating the alleged attempted bribery of former cricket international Chris Lewis arrested a 33-year-old London man on Wednesday.The man, who has not been named, is helping police with their inquiries at a central London police station, the Metropolitan Police said. Police were called in to investigate allegations of match-fixing on August 3 last year when a player contacted the England and Wales Cricket board (ECB).It emerged that the player was former England bowler Lewis, who claimed he had been asked to approach players and offer them money in return for throwing a Test match.The match in question was England's third Test against New Zealand in 1999 at Old Trafford, Manchester. The players involved in the Test were reportedly unaware of the alleged attempted match-fixing.It is understood the arrested man is not a player or cricket official.
