Mumbai, Feb 1 (UNI) Former India captain Dilip Vengsarkar today trained his guns on match referee Mike Procter of South Africa, saying that the ICC should haul him up for bungling the incident involving Harbhajan Singh and Andrew Symonds during last month's Sydney Test.

Procter will have to do some answering to the ICC, said the chairman of the national selection committee while reacting to the three-Test ban on Harbhajan imposed by match referee Procter, which was later revoked by Appeals Commissioner John Hansen, who reduced it to a simple monetary penalty.

Vengsarkar was speaking to the media after launching the fifth edition of the Polycom 20-20 cricket fest for Corporates organised by Sportz Village.

Vengsarkar also recalled that this was not the first time the South African cricketer had failed to perform his duties properly, citing the Oval Test incident between England and Pakistan, that led to the first-ever forfeiture in Test cricket's history and the on-field spat between Glenn McGrath and West Indian batsman Ramnaresh Sarwan.
