Ejaz Butt says PCB cannot launch probe against tainted trio

Pakistan Cricket Board’s chairman, Ijaz Butt, has spoken to the media for the first time since the Pakistani high commission had proclaimed that Butt was on another assignment. Butt said that the ICC was looking into the matter, and till such time, the PCB could not launch its own probe.

Butt said that the PCB was equally concerned about the issue and would like to eradicate the corruption. However, he also added, “We cannot launch a parallel investigation because the matter is already under investigation.”

Butt also added that the PCB had written a missive on the behalf of the players to the ICC, but the apex body had got back saying that they wanted individual letters from the players. Butt added that the letters will be given to the ICC in a couple of weeks, the allowed time frame for this.

Mohammad Amir, Mohammad Asif and Salman Butt are three of the players being investigated for match-fixing and were initially withdrawn by the PCB from the ODIs and T20Is. The ICC then suspended the three.
