Daily Telegraph today claimed that Fletcher had played the role of agent provocateur by his visit to match referee Mike Proctor.
An ECB spokesman confirmed that Fletcher met with Procter on fourth day morning but denied he had made a ''specific complaint about the state of the ball''.
The newspaper said sources close to the England team have stated that Fletcher played a part in drawing the officials' attention to certain issues.
The report goes on to state that England's players were concerned on Saturday (the third day) and that Marcus Trescothick was ''spotted watching Pakistan's players through binoculars, presumably to ascertain what actions they were performing on the ball''.
It added that Fletcher had also made enquiries as to why Sky TV cameras were not following the ball more closely as it was passed around the Pakistan fielders during the Headingley Test.
