LONDON: Wahab Riaz has become the latest Pakistan cricketer to be questioned by police as a result of the spot-fixing row engulfing the team’s tour of England.

A statement issued by Scotland Yard said, “We can confirm that one further Pakistani cricketer was interviewed by appointment under caution.”

Although the statement did not name Riaz, his interview with detectives was trailed last week by Pakistan Cricket Board chairman, who said, “We’ve arranged for his interview as we’ll continue to cooperate and we want to get to the bottom of the matter.”

Pakistan’s tour has been overshadowed by allegations of a betting scam that has claimed that no-balls were deliberately bowled in the fourth Test against England at Lord’s last month.
