ICC probing third Pak-England ODI amid 'go-slow' allegations

The International Cricket Council has launched an inquiry into the third one-day match between Pakistan and England at The Oval, following allegations that the visiting team was involved in low and slow scoring, as fixed by an illegal betting syndicate.


London, Sept 19 : The International Cricket Council has launched an inquiry into the third one-day match between Pakistan and England at The Oval, following allegations that the visiting team was involved in low and slow scoring, as fixed by an illegal betting syndicate.

"This is something we are taking very, very seriously because it seems that so much information we were given before the game mirrors what actually happened," News of the World quoted an ICC source, as saying.

"It is perhaps less obvious than the incidents at Lord's in the final Test which the News of the World highlighted, but there is something there we have to look at incredibly closely," he added.

ICC's Anti-Corruption and Security Unit is studying frame-by-frame video footage of the Pakistan innings and concentrating on a specific 10-over spell, and suspiciously low and slow scoring is believed to be at the heart of the investigation.

The latest allegation of spot-fixing during Pakistan's 23-run win has cast yet another cloud over the most controversial tour in cricket history, and has angered the Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB), which has rejected the claims as "sensationalism."

"PCB condemns sensationalizing of these allegations which are harming cricket in general and Pakistan in particular," PCB said in a statement.

Meanwhile, Pakistan one-day captain Shahid Afridi has also dismissed the allegations, saying they were "an attempt to put pressure on the team."
