PCB not planning to summon umpires in match-fixing case as yet
Karachi: A Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) spokesperson has said the board was not planning on summoning the two umpires implicated in the match-fixing allegations made by an Indian television channel as yet, saying that it is a "sensitive matter".
Footage screened on India TV on Monday showed umpires from Pakistan, Bangladesh and Sri Lanka negotiating deals with under-cover reporters to spot-fix matches, reports The Express Tribune.
PCB`s General Manager Nadeem Sarwar said the board will deliberate what steps should be taken before summoning umpires Nadeem Ghauri and Anees Siddiqui.
The International Cricket Council (ICC) has also launched an investigation into the allegations made against international umpires after the channel showed footage of Ghauri, Nadir Shah of Bangladesh, part of the ICC international panel of umpires, and Sagara Gallage of Sri Lanka agreeing to give favorable decisions in exchange for umpiring contracts and money.
