Melbourne: Embattled Australian batsman Mark Waugh, who has agreed to face questioning over his alleged role in cricket's match-fixing and betting scandal, conceded on Thursday that he is under pressure."It hasn't been the best week, I guess, obviously there's some pressure there," Waugh told reporters in Adelaide. But Australian team members continued to support him, he said."It's obviously been spoken about. My team-mates are very supportive, which I'd expect of them," he said. "They're going about their business as normal and so am I."Waugh is in Adelaide preparing with the Australian side to play the West Indies in a limited overs match on Friday."Tomorrow will be a good test. I hit the ball pretty well in the nets so, fingers crossed, I'll make a few runs," the twin brother of Australian captain Steve Waugh said.However, he refused to offer any insight into his likely testimony to International Cricket Council (ICC) investigators.
