One of Jamaica's top cops Mark Shields testified that he found no evidence of match fixing in the connection with the death of cricket coach Bob Woolmer.

Shields, Jamaica's deputy commissioner of police, was called to testify on Tuesday, the 20th day of the inquest into the death of the former Pakistan national cricket team coach.

Shields said investigations by police and International Cricket Council found no evidence of match fixing.

"I found nothing that Mr. Woolmer was writing about, or had written about match fixing or dirty side of cricket," Shields said while pointing out that investigators took into consideration the book Woolmer was in the process of publishing.

Woolmer died hours after he was found unconscious in his Jamaica hotel room on March 18, a day after Pakistan suffered a humiliated defeat to Ireland at the World Cup of cricket.

Shields continues his testimony on Wednesday.
