Karachi, Apr.16 (ANI): International Cricket Council (ICC) Chief Executive Officer (CEO) Haroon Lorgat has rubbished reports that the ICC had provided evidence regarding some Pakistani cricketer’s involvement in match-fixing to the Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB).

Lorgat said no such report have been given to the PCB, as being claimed by two Pakistani Senators.

” We have a very stringent and modernised procedure in place to tackle any corruption in cricket and we at the ICC don’t go by hearsay or unsubstantiated allegations against anyone,” The Daily Times quoted Lorgat, as saying.

Earlier, speaking during the ICC World T20 Championship trophy unveiling ceremony, Lorgat said the apex cricket body is trying hard to ensure that Pakistan gets international exposure especially after the refusal of foreign teams to tour the country due the precarious security conditions.

Lorgat, however, hinted that international cricket might not return to the troubled country in the near future.

” Pakistan should be patient in these testing times as there’s a lack of confidence in foreign teams. The ICC is very keen to ensure Pakistan play at neutral venues rather than not competing at the international level, which I think will be detrimental for Pakistan cricket,” he said. (ANI)
