The Pakistan Cricket Board chairman Ijaz Butt has said that International Cricket Council Chief Haroon Lorgat is 'not a saint from heaven' making statements everyone should believe in.
Butt was speaking to Express 24/7 on the recent match fixing allegations leveled against Pakistan. He said that the allegations are being leveled to defraud Pakistan and Pakistan Cricket and that the PCB has launched its own investigation, and will be announcing names of parties, organisations and people involved.
He also said that according some bookies, some English players were paid enormous amounts of money which is why the England batting collapsed in the third one day.
Butt said that it was unfortunate that statements and allegations had been levelled without any investigations, and that he would be bringing up these questions ata meeting on the 11th.
Speaking on the previous match fixing allegations, he said that all three players have been questioned by Scotland Yard for nine hours and no charges had been pressed against them.
Pakistan cricket recently received another blow, after a UK based paper alleged that Pakistan players were involved in fixing the third one day international.
