Pune pitch curator to be suspended for giving out information

Pitch-fixing in cricket

"It will be done", Salgaoncar is quoted as saying by India Today. At the same time, the ICC match referee also saw the pitch and said that it is absolutely flawless for an worldwide match.

Caught unawares, the MCA management, headed by president Abhay Apte, suspended Salagaonkar, a former Maharashtra fast bowler, from all positions in the MCA, barred him from entering the venue and stated that it would conduct an enquiry into the unsavoury episode.

India Today TV showed Salgaonkar allegedly telling their undercover reporters - who posed as bookies - he could manipulate the pitch and sharing information about the playing surface in violation of ICC's anti-corruption code. "It is very good".

The reporters asked Salgaonkar if they could get some bounce on the pitch.

Pandurang Salgaonkar, the curator at the Maharashtra Cricket Association (MCA) ground in Pune has been suspended after being accused of agreeing to tamper with the pitch upon request of reporters disguised as bookies during a sting operation. He said that the pitch will yield scores of 337-340 runs.

Devin Nunes, R-Calif., announced the joint investigation with the House Oversight and Government Reform Committee. This is more about uranium and whether or not government actually functioned properly", he said .

In response, the BCCI immediately "dismissed" Salgaoncar.

And in another, the reporter asks that either a player or a team - the identity has been bleeped out - be dealt a "favor" for the game.

The same pitch was deemed poor by the ICC after the India-Australia Test match which was played in February. "We are now looking to establish the facts and will make no further comment whilst this is ongoing". All thanks to the Pune pitch curator Pandurang Salgaonkar.

According to the BCCI and the International Cricket Council (ICC), rules state that no one - other than the officials - can come inside the stadium or inspect the pitch for that matter. But before we have our urgent meeting, in the capacity of the MCA President, I have taken Mr. Salgaonkar under suspension with immediate effect, and all his work has been withdrawn, including his basic membership with the MCA has been withdrawn.
