Islamabad, Aug 1 (ANI): Pakistani all-rounder Shahid Afridi has advised Pakistan to savour their one-day and Twenty20 wins over the West Indies and forget allegations of fixing.
According to the Daily Times, Pakistan beat the West Indies 3-1 in the five-match one-day series, and clinched both the Twenty20s on the tour, which finished on Sunday.
However, the report added that the exhilaration over the victories were clouded by controversy after a British newspaper claimed that ICC's international anti-corruption unit could investigate the one-day matches against West Indies over fixing charges.
Stating that he is not aware of any allegations, Afridi however, urged his team to enjoy their victories, saying that they deserve it as they have done well, and also advised them to forget any other thing.
Afridi, who became the first batsman to hit 400 international sixes, further said that the wins were very much needed after the team's dismal performances in South Africa and the ICC Champions Trophy, adding that he is sure that the victories will go a long way in improving the image of the team and the players.
Denying the allegations, Pakistan team manager Naveed Cheema called them 'baseless', saying that the discipline of the players was exemplary which showed in the results, while off-spinner Saeed Ajmal urged people to give Pakistan credit on their wins and not to focus solely on the allegations against the team.
According to the report, Pakistan cricket has an unenviable history of corruption and fixing as three international players served jail terms in England for arranging no balls to order during the Lord's Test of 2010.
Pakistan next tour Zimbabwe in August where they play two T20s, three one-dayers and two Tests, the report added. (ANI)
