ECB calls match-fixing allegations during Pak-Windies ODI series 'baseless'

Karachi, July 31 (ANI): The England and Wales Cricket Board (ECB) has reportedly assured the Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) that the match-fixing allegations over the recently concluded one-day series between Pakistan and West Indies are 'baseless'.

According to the Express Tribune, a British newspaper had raised concerns regarding the nature in which the series was played, claiming that the ICC's Anti-Corruption and Security Unit (ACSU) was set to investigate alleged 'wrong doings'.

The report had further mentioned 'suspicious betting patterns' and had also quoted the ECB information manager Chris Watts, raising concerns.

However, the PCB stated that they had received assurance from ECB that the board had not passed any judgment on Pakistan cricket and had also not suggested that there was anything to be concerned about during the series. (ANI)
