Islamabad: The Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) has dismissed as "rumour", reports that its players may have been involved in some wrong-doing in the Champions Trophy match against Sri Lanka, even though International Cricket Council (ICC) has admitted to reviewing "a number of incidents that took place" in that game on September 12.Neither the team management in Colombo nor the Board had been contacted by the ICC in this regard, PCB Director Chisti Mujahid said."Had there been anything, the ICC officials must have contacted PCB," Mujahid was quoted as saying by local daily 'The News' on Tuesday.Mujahid said he had spoken to team manager Yawar Saeed and he too had not been contacted by ICC. "Yawar said that he has not been contacted by any official of the ICC Anti-Corruption Unit and it is just a rumour nothing else."There is no truth in it. In fact some Indian newspapers have stooped too low and they have ran baseless stories," Mujahid said. "The Indian newspapers should have shown a degree of responsibility in this respect."Mujahid said the review of the tapes of the match by Anti-Corruption Unit was a routine exercise. "I think it is part of their job," he said. PTI
