ICC investigating pitch tampering allegations against Pune curator Pandurang Salgaoncar


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.

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.

The Pune pitch curator Salgaonkar, who was a former pacer played 63 First-Class matches and 5 List-A games where he clinched 218 wickets in total.

Salgaoncar was dismissed by the Maharashtra Cricket Association (MCA) and replaced by curator Ramesh Mhamunkar.

Asked if this would have an impact on the ongoing India-New Zealand series, Khanna outrightly said: "Not at all".


The pitch is to be inspected by ICC referee Chris Broad, along with umpires, while a BCCI official told ESPN the match will take place on an adjacent pitch if needed.

Indian bowlers, especially new ball colleagues Bhuvneshwar Kumar (three for 45) and Jaspreet Bumrah, laid the foundation for their comprehensive victory by restricting New Zealand to 230 for nine after the tourists opted to bat. I will attend to it immediately and take the strictest action. "The BCCI is in touch with the MCA and appropriate measures will be taken with regards to the matter".

The Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) banned Salgaoncar soon after he was seen promising a favourable track to reporters who posed as bookies.

Acting BCCI acting honorary secretary Amitabh Choudhary said: "The BCCI has zero tolerance towards any activity that brings the game to disrepute".
