`Match fixer`ex-Pak opener Salim Pervez dies in road accident
Islamabad: Former Pakistani international opener Salim Pervez, a key figure in a Pakistan match-fixing inquiry, passed away on Wednesday following a fatal road accident.
According to a friend of Pervez, he was riding a motorcycle when he was hit by a bigger vehicle on Sunday, and after battling with his injuries, he finally breathed his last on Wednesday.
Pervez had admitted to a match-fixing inquiry in the late 1990s that he had acted as a middleman between some Pakistani players and bookies to throw a final in Sharjah.
A dashing opener in domestic matches, Pervez played a single one-day international, against the West Indies at Karachi in 1980, before his career derailed over allegations of murder, which were never proven.
