Indian cricketer Sachin Tendulkar on Friday said the International Cricket Council(ICC) should thoroughly investigate the 'spot-fixing' scandal that has rocked the entire cricketing nation and take appropriate action against players who are found guilty.
“ICC should make a thorough probe in the spot-fixing scandal and take appropriate action if the players are found guilty," Tendulkar told reporters.
“If the allegations are true, they will certainly bring disrepute to the game," he added.
The Pakistan team is in the midst of a betting scam, where Pakistan Test captain Salman Butt, Mohammad Aamer and fellow fast bowler Mohammad Asif are alleged to have been involved in 'spot-fixing' in the Lord"s Test, which England won by an innings and 225 runs.
The ICC has charged the prime accused under the anti-corruption code and barred them from international cricket until their cases gets resolved.
Tendulkar also said he has not come across any instance of Indian players being contacted by a bookie in his playing career.
“In my 21 year of international cricket, I have never heard of an Indian player being approached by bookies," Tendulkar asserted.
