Mervyn Westfield, the former Essex bowler, has been sentenced to four months in jail after admitting his role in spot-fixing. He accepted £6,000 in return for conceding a set number of runs off an over in a Pro40 match against Durham in September 2009. His former Essex team-mate Danish Kaneria was named as the alleged go-between, who had also approached other players about fixing. Here's the full coverage of the case
