The Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) has formed a committee to probe ialleged match-fixing charges against umpires Nadeem Ghouri and Anis-ur-Rehman, sources have said. The PCB, however, is yet to make an official announcement regarding the formation of this committee. "The PCB executive co-ordination committee that met the other day discussed about Ghouri.
The members were briefed that the committee had already requested the Indian channel that carried out the sting operation to provide the unedited tapes," the Daily Times quoted a PCB source, as saying. "The committee also discussed the fact that Ghouri had been claiming that he had already informed a board official about the offer made to him by the undercover reporter," the source added. Ghauri and Rehman have been accused, along with four other umpires from Bangladesh and Sri Lanka, of corruption by an Indian television channel, which carried out a sting operation. But Ghouri has categorically denied the allegations and said the video was fake. The International Cricket Council (ICC) has already suspended the six umpires named in the sting operation and asked the respective home cricket boards to carry out their own investigations into the matter. The source said the committee would be questioning the two umpires and would also like to question the undercover reporter.
"The committee has legal experts on it as the ICC has indicated that it wants to get to the bottom of the truth," the source added.
