England threatens legal action against Butt

London:

England's cricket team has threatened legal action against Pakistan Cricket Board chairman Ijaz Butt unless he apologises for alleging English players deliberately lost the third one-day international between the teams at The Oval last week.

The England and Wales Cricket Board says it and the Professional Cricketers' Association has sent a letter to Butt on behalf of the team, seeking "a full and unreserved apology."

An ECB statement on Thursday says "Mr. Butt has been advised that if a satisfactory response is not received, legal proceedings will be commenced."

Butt's allegations came after an investigation was opened by the International Cricket Council following claims the scoring in Pakistans innings at The Oval on Friday was prearranged.
