ICC, BCCI mum on latest fixing claims

December 01, 2010 15:17 IST

The International Cricket Council (ICC) president Sharad Pawar on Wednesday refused to react on the latest revelations that apart from suspended trio of Salman Butt, Mohammed Asif and Mohammed Aamer, four more Pakistani players were allegedly involved in spot-fixing.

Pakistan's Geo News channel on Tuesday aired a video in which suspected bookmaker Mazhar Majeed said seven Pakistani players were hand in glove with him in spot-fixing.

He took names of Akmal brothers Kamran and Umar, paceman Wahab Riaz and left-handed batsman Imran Farhat.

The first expose by British tabloid News of the World had led to suspensions of Butt, Asif and Aamer, who are now facing a hearing into charges that they took money to bowl deliberate no balls during the Lord's Test against England.

"You have to contact our office in Dubai. That's our head office," Pawar said when his reaction was sought on the development.

Meanwhile, the Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) also chose not to speak on the issue.

BCCI vice-president Rajeev Shukla said, "it was not appropriate for the BCCI to comment" on the issue as theĀ  matter was in the domain of Pakistan Cricket Board.
