Kamran, Riaz ready to face probe


Share post:


Karachi: Under scanner Pakistani cricketers Kamran Akmal and Wahab Riaz today said they are ready to face any investigation by the ICC as they do not want their names to be linked with corruption and spot-fixing media reports.

The two players, presently sidelined by the national selectors, told PTI they were fed up with the constant media reports linking them to spot-fixing allegations.

“I don’t like these media reports insinuating things about me. The selectors dropped me for the one-day series against Sri Lanka that is their decision. But to insinuate I have been dropped because of some spot-fixing allegations is not acceptable,” Riaz who starred in the 2011 World Cup said.Media has reported that their names were mentioned during the spot-fixing trial in London for their involvement in corruption with tainted Pakistani players Salman Butt, Muhammad Asif and Muhammad Aamir, who were jailed by a crown court in London last month for corruption and cheating.

During the trial it was reported that the agent for the tainted trio Mazhar Majeed had told undercover reporter Mazhar Mahmood that they were other Pakistani players involved in spot-fixing and mentioned the names of Kamran and Wahab. (PTI)
