BCCI to take 'appropriate measures' after Pune curator sacking

BCCI to take 'appropriate measures' after Pune curator sacking”

In the sting operation by India Today TV, Salgaoncar is seen and heard speaking to an undercover reporter, who poses as a bookie, while standing on the pitch of the Maharashtra Cricket Association (MCA) Stadium on the eve of the second One-day global.

Tight bowling and fifties from Shikhar Dhawan and Dinesh Karthik helped India secure a series-levelling six-wickets victory against New Zealand in the second one-day global on Wednesday.

"We are investigating the allegations from Pune this morning, as with all global cricket, the ICC Anti- Corruption Unit has an ICC ACU Manager on the ground in India and we are in close contact with him", said an ICC official.

Pune pitch curator has been dismissed and his membership terminated, said CoA (Committee of Administrators) chief Vinod Rai and added that they were looking into the issue and in contact with the concerned officials.

The second ODI between India and New Zealand at MCA Stadium in Pune is less than an hour away from now, but it has already been shrouded with controversy.

"Nobody should be allowed to go to the pitch (before a match)", Azhar told India Today.

The BCCI source further revealed that the match referee will take a final call on calling off the second ODI at the Maharashtra Cricket Association stadium.

"We have acted swiftly and ensured that there are no loopholes left ahead of the 2nd ODI between India and New Zealand", said Choudhary. "Too early to announce quantum of punishment, but BCCI has a zero tolerance policy towards corruption and fixing and strong action will be taken if found guilty", BCCI acting President CK Khanna told Cricketnext. "The BCCI is in touch with the MCA and appropriate measures will be taken with regards to the matter".

The pitch was inspected and cleared to be used for a match which India won to level the series after the BCCI appointed a replacement curator.
