Melbourne: Pakistan might be in the eye of storm after guilty verdicts against three of its cricketers but Australian speedster Brett Lee believes match-fixing is not restricted to the sub-continent and can happen anywhere in the world.

But Lee maintained that he never felt anything suspicious about his colleagues against whom he has played so far in his career.

"What I will say publicly is that it's not just the subcontinent and I don't want to focus on Pakistan or India or people might think it's because (of) the subcontinent," the affable pacer was quoted as saying.

"It's every day, (an) every walk of life type of thing and it's not just cricket. The most important thing is, I believe, that every time I walked out on the field, and the players that have played with me, there was certainly nothing that would ever make me think personally that there was something dodgy going on," he said.

In his new autobiography 'My Life', Lee writes about an incident when he was approached by a man with potential links to bookmakers during the 2009 Ashes series.
    
However, Lee said he has never been approached by anyone to deliberately alter his bowling to change the course of a match.

"We were in a bar/hotel set-up. A guy came and offered to buy us a drink. I just didn't feel right, reported it to the team manager and then it turned out that he was potentially, if not, a bookmaker," he said.
