Pak-UK relations 'on solid ground' despite cricket-fixing row: Pak envoy to UK

Pakistans High Commissioner to the United Kingdom, Wajid Hasan, has said that the relations between Pakistan and Britain would not be damaged by the cricket-fixing row.


London, Sep 21: Pakistan's High Commissioner to the United Kingdom, Wajid Hasan, has said that the relations between Pakistan and Britain would not be damaged by the cricket-fixing row.

"Will this row sour our relationship? My answer is certainly no. This is a separate matter. Our relationship with the UK was not made overnight. It has its roots in the past. It is on solid ground," The Daily Express quoted Hasan, as saying.

However, Hasan risked further inflaming the row by supporting Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) Chairman Ijaz Butt over his claim.

Butt has alleged that England players were paid "enormous amounts of money" to lose Friday's third ODI at The Oval.

"Butt made a very innocent argument. He said that it's very strange that, when Pakistan loses a match, people describe it as a spot-fixing or fixing of the match. When Pakistan win the match, the same allegations are levelled against it," Hassan said.

"While he was in India the bookies told him the matches are fixed in England. It's the responsibility of the ICC (International Cricket Council) to investigate allegations. This was an allegation made by a member of the ICC's board," he added.
