Pak team told not to discuss London court proceedings
Karachi: As claims continue to surface against former and current Pakistan players during the ongoing spot-fixing case hearing at a court in London, the national team has been told to avoid discussing the issue and instead focus on preparing for the upcoming series against Sri Lanka.
On the fourth day of the hearing into the spot-fixing case against the tainted Pakistani trio- Salman Butt, Mohammad Amir and Mohammad Asif- as well as alleged bookmaker Mazhar Majeed, the court heard claims that former Pakistan players were involved in match-fixing.
However, Pakistan’s interim coach Mohsin Khan said that he has instructed the players to concentrate on their game.
“I’ve told them clearly to not discuss the issue. I’m pleased that the players are focused,” The Express Tribune quoted Mohsin, as saying.
The interim coach said that the series against Sri Lanka was a crucial one, but added that the players were motivated enough.
“The body language of all the players is positive and they are showing good energy in the training drills,” he said.
Pakistan are due to play a full-fledged series against Sri Lanka in the UAE, beginning with the first Test on October 18. The two teams contest three Tests, five One-Day Internationals and a one-off Twenty20.
