Melbourne: Findings into corruption allegations against Australian cricketer Mark Waugh are expected soon, the Australian Cricket Board said on Thursday.Both Waugh and former England captain Alec Stewart, who has been cleared of similar charges, were accused by Indian bookmaker Mukesh Gupta of accepting money for information.Stewart was cleared of any wrongdoing by the International Cricket Council's Anti-Corruption Unit after Gupta declined to give evidence to its inquiry.The ACB said it had asked its anti-corruption investigator Greg Melick to wind up his report into Gupta's allegations against Waugh."Ten days ago, when Gupta decided not to co-operate with the inquiry, we wrote to Greg Melick and asked him to prepare the report for us," ACB chief executive James Sutherland said."We expect that report will be ready sooner rather than later."
