Lahore, Oct.8 (ANI): The International Cricket Council (ICC) has brushed aside the match fixing allegations labeled against the home side by a Pakistani Parliamentarian.
ICC Chief Executive Haroon Lorgat rebutted reports regarding the involvement of umpires in the scandal, and gave a clean chit to umpire Simon Taufel who was officiating in the semi-final match between Pakistan and New Zealand.
"It is not worthy of spending any energy on. We are very comfortable with Taufel," The Daily Times quoted Lorgat, as saying.
"We are quite pleased with the way the game was played. It was played in great spirits. We all know Taufel," he added. (ANI)
