ICC asks channel to provide details of sting operation against umpires

New Delhi:

The International Cricket Council on Monday, took note of the allegations of intent to fix matches against six umpires made by a TV channel and asked it to provide details so that a detailed and quick investigation can be carried out.

Maintaining that none of the six umpires named in the sting - Nadeem Ghauri and Anees Siddiqui of Pakistan, Nadir Shah of Bangaldesh, and Gamini Dissanayake, Maurice Winston and Sagara Gallage of Sri Lanka - played any part in the recently concluded World T20 tournament in Sri Lanka, the ICC in a release said that it remains committed to its zero tolerance policy against corruption 'whether alleged against players or officials.'

"The ICC confirms that none of the umpires named were involved in any of the official games of the ICC World Twenty20 in Sri Lanka."

India TV earlier in the day had alleged that the above mentioned officials agreed to provide information, help certain players and fix decisions in exchange for money. No money however, was exchanged.
