Vaughan wants legal action over Butt's England match throwing claims

Enraged by Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) chairman Ijaz Butts England match throwing remark, the countrys former cricket captain Michael Vaughan has urged the English teams current captain Andrew Strauss to take legal action against Butt in this regard.


London, Sep 23 : Enraged by Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) chairman Ijaz Butt's England match throwing remark, the country's former cricket captain Michael Vaughan has urged the English team's current captain Andrew Strauss to take legal action against Butt in this regard.

"I'd be making a few phone calls to legal sources to try to take this a little bit further," the Daily Times quoted Vaughan, as saying to a sports channel.

"I can't think of anything worse than your name mentioned in terms of fixing a game of cricket," he added.

In a statement, Strauss expressed disappointment that England's "integrity" had been questioned, but appreciated that "Andrew Strauss and the team have dealt with it in a very good fashion."

"They've kept their dignity and they've not said much. I've never been involved with England team through that kind of allegation or finger pointing. But I'd be taking it as far as I can because unless Ijaz Butt takes back the comments, I think this case will go on for a lot longer," he added.

Earlier, in a TV interview, Butt had sparked outrage in the cricket world by saying, "There is loud and clear talk in bookie circle that some English players were paid enormous amounts of money to lose the match... No wonder there was total collapse of the English side."

However, in a follow-up interview, he denied accusing England players, claiming that he had merely been relaying information from bookmakers relating to the fourth ODI at the Oval.
