Match-fixing charges against Pak are shocking: Imran

New Delhi:

Expressing his shock over questions being raised on Pakistan's spirit of the game, former captain Imran Khan on Tuesday backed skipper Younus Khan and said his commitment is immaculate.

"Younus Khan's commitment is impeccable", said Imran in an exclusive interview with NDT V.

The legendary Pakistan bowler further said that the match-fixing allegations against the team have left him in a state of shock.

"Match-fixing charges against Pakistan are shocking".

Imran said that the non-experts and people who are not knowledgeable about the game should restrict themselves on commenting on this delicate issue.

"Non-experts should not comment on cricket", said Imran.

He also backed Younus Khan and supported the Pakistan skipper by praising his level of commitment for the county and game.

"Younus Khan's commitment is impeccable and I don't feel he dropped the catch deliberately".

Earlier, facing allegations of match-fixing from a Parliamentarian, Pakistani cricketers got the much-needed backing of their Board, which said the players did their best in the Champions Trophy.

The Chairman of the National Assembly's standing committee on sports has accused the team of deliberately under-performing against Australia and New Zealand in the Champions Trophy.
