Rubbishing Adam Gilchrist's claim that the Indian Premier League (IPL) was an "easy target" for match-fixers, IPL Vice Chairman Niranjan Shah today said that the third edition of the cash-awash Twenty20 League was played in a fair and transparent manner.

"All the IPL matches were played under fair and transparent manner. There was no evidence of match fixing and even the anti-corruption team of ICC has given a clean chit to IPL-III," Shah told reporters in Rajkot,  . "Besides, BCCI and IPL officials are keen and committed to keep IPL matches clean and corruption free. I don't know why Gilchrist has given such a statement," he added. 

Talking to an English daily, the Deccan Chargers skipper had said IPL was an easy target for match-fixers as players are accessible during the event. 

"It's been discussed among players in the IPL - more wondering whether it goes on. There's a strong thought that we'd be naive to think it's not happening, because it's a pretty easy target. There's a lot of accessibility to players and it's early in its governance," Gilchrist had said. PTI
