Pak batsman Hameed denies accusing teammates of match fixing

Pakistan batsman Yasir Hameed has denied reports of having told an undercover journalist that his teammates were corrupt and had constantly fixed games.


London, Sep.5 : Pakistan batsman Yasir Hameed has denied reports of having told an undercover journalist that his teammates were corrupt and had constantly fixed games.

British tabloid News of The World reported Hameed had "sensationally confirmed" its report last week that some Pakistan players had accepted money to fix aspects of the fourth Test match against England in London.

These allegations led to Pakistan Test captain Salman Butt and bowlers Mohammad Aamer and Mohammad Asif being charged by the International Cricket Council for corruption. Police also questioned them.

The tabloid said Hameed had told one of its reporters in a bar in Nottingham, central England, that some Pakistan players were fixing "almost every match".

"They've been caught. Only the ones that get caught are branded crooks. They were doing it (fixing) in almost every match. God knows what they were up to. Scotland Yard was after them for ages," NOTW quoted Hameed, as saying.

"It makes me angry because I'm playing my best and they are trying to lose," the 32-year-old added further.

However, on Sunday denied he had bad-mouthed his teammates to the media.

He said: "I have not given any interview to the News of the World or any newspaper. I can never think of blaming my teammates in match fixing. I have just told the team management that the newspaper is claiming I have given them an interview. This is not correct."

Hameed remains in England after playing in Pakistan's Tests series, despite not being picked for the limited-overs matches which start on Sunday.

He admitted going to a number of parties in Nottingham but insisted "there were no strangers."
