A fourth Pakistani cricketer was interviewed by detectives under caution after claims of match-fixing, Scotland Yard said today.

Fast bowler Wahab Riaz was questioned by officers after fellow players Salman Butt, Mohammad Asif and Mohammad Aamer were grilled for nine hours over allegations published in the News of the World last month.

The Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) revealed last week that the bowler would be questioned today.

A Scotland Yard statement read: "Can confirm that today, Tuesday 14 September, one further Pakistani cricketer was interviewed by appointment under caution."
