Match fixing in cricket is "much more widespread than what the public thinks", making commentating on some Tests legally difficult, according to the commentator and former Australia cricket captain Ian Chappell.
Chappell told Guardian Australia he believed that match fixing was going on around the world.
He said: "When all the fixing allegations have been going on in the cricket world, the first thing that people say to you in Australia is that 'none of our guys are involved are they?' … I think you're a very game person to say that any team is not involved. It's pretty widespread."
Chappell, who captained an Australia team described as one of the best in history, said that he had altered his cricket commentary in the past in order to compensate for "dodgy" practice.
"I don't want people to look back at me and say, 'Well, he was hot on fixing but he didn't do anything about it.' I've done what I think I have to do with the information that I've been given.
"If ever I go to court to talk about this and the judge … says 'Well, you didn't say anything about it at the time,' I can say to the judge, 'You go back and listen to my commentary there, and if you listen very closely there's an indication there that I wasn't happy with what was going on.'"
Chappell said he believed that the Sydney Test of 2010 when Australia played Pakistan in the second of a three-Test series, could have been fixed. He questioned the now-retired Pakistan captain Mohammed Yosuf's use of tactics.
"Take your pick. That was either very, very bad captaincy or it was dodgy captaincy," he said.
The series, which saw the touring Pakistan side lose all three Tests, as well as every other international fixture on the tour, was the subject of an ICC investigation into match fixing. The investigation was subsequently dropped as no evidence was found to indicate the match had been fixed.
The cricket world has been rocked by allegations of spot fixing and match fixing in recent years. Three members of the Pakistani cricket team were exposed in the British press for accepting bribes to bowl deliberate no-balls in the Lord's Test against England in August 2010. All three were banned by the ICC and given prison sentences in Britain. This year police in India have begun investigating allegations of spot fixing in the Indian Premier League.
In response to Chappell's comments, a spokesman for Cricket Australia said: "Cricket Australia has an anti-corruption and security unit to oversee and maintain the integrity of Australia's domestic competitions.
"As well as monitoring domestic Australian matches, players and officials, the unit administers extensive education programs for all Australian and overseas players and officials involved in Australia's domestic cricket competitions. While we are never complacent, we are confident there are no issues of that nature in Australia and we will continue to do everything necessary to ensure the integrity of Australian cricket."

In a wide-ranging interview with Guardian Australia, Chappell, who was speaking before the sacking of Mickey Arthur, also said he believed the Australian cricket team would lose both 2013 Ashes series: "At this stage I just don't see any way that Australia could beat England."
Chappell said he believed the current system of governance in Australian cricket was not conducive to allowing the current captain to do his job properly. "There's too many people to tell to get stuffed," he said.
He also said the selection process did not give enough weight to younger talent, and that the central contract system employed by Cricket Australia meant Australia's international cricketers were not encouraged to speak their minds.
"If you want to speak out, the problem is you can be looked up as a troublemake," he said. "And if they think you're a troublemaker, the black line goes through your name, and you don't get a contract. So if guys are wanting to retain their contract, one simple way of doing that is not to speak out."
