Cricket: Pakistan says fixing claims in series against the Windies are "outrageous"
KARACHI (AFP) - Pakistan's cricket chief on Monday termed fixing allegations over the team's one-day series against the West Indies as "outrageous", adding that his board had insisted on a full investigation by the International Cricket Council (ICC).
British newspaper The Mail on Sunday had reported the series was under investigation by the Anti-Corruption and Security Unit (ACSU) of world cricket's governing body with experts identifying suspicious betting patterns.
"Concerns have been raised, in particular, around the tied third match of the series played in St Lucia a week ago on Friday, as well as the final game, which resulted in a last-ball win for Pakistan on Thursday," the paper reported.
The West Indies, chasing 230, tied the third match after needing 24 in the last two overs with the last pair of Kemar Roach and Jason Holder at the crease.
