NEW DELHI (AP) -- The Indian cricket board is investigating allegations of spot fixing in domestic games stemming from a sting operation by a TV news channel.

The Board of Control for Cricket in India on Tuesday said it would closely scrutinize the TV footage and would "not tolerate any violation of regulations and any act of corruption."

The TV sting involved reporters posing as agents of a sports management firm offering players money to perform in a certain way at specific times in the match.

The channel showed T.P. Sudhindra, who plays for Deccan Chargers in the Twenty20 Indian Premier League, allegedly bowling a no-ball in a local T20 game in the central Indian city of Indore for $1,000.
