India v New Zealand: Groundsman sacked after TV sting tampering claims
Pune (Maharashtra), October 25: Pune pitch curatorPandurang Salgaoncar is set to be suspended after he was found to be giving inside information to the reporters, disguised as bookies, ahead of the second ODI of the three-match series between India and New Zealand. Announcing the suspension, Maharashtra CA president Abhay Apte stressed that BCCI has zero tolerance for such subjects. BCCI's acting secretary Amitabh Chaudhary has chose to suspend the curator following his exploits, "Pandurang Salgaonkar has been suspended from the Maharashtra Cricket Association's curator's post with immediate effect", BCCI acting Secretary Amitabh Chaudhary told PTI.
The International Cricket Council (ICC) Match Referee Chris Broad inspected the pitch ahead of the match and cleared the same for the game to go ahead.
The reporters asked Salgaonkar that two players want to bounce on the pitch and if it can be done, to which Salgaonkar replied, "It will be done".
The tapes exposed a serious lapse in the Anti-Corruption unit of the BCCI, but the secretary said that the match must go on. An inquiry Commission will also be constituted by MCA.
"The MCA has also suspended Salgaonkar from all other positions in the association".
"It is a very good pitch on which 337 runs will be chaseable".
The reporters were allowed to walk on the middle of the pitch. Earlier, the BCCI correctly told the pitch, then the ICC also gave it a green signal.
After the huge success of the series against Australia, team India lost the opening ODI against New Zealand by six wickets at Wankhede Stadium on Sunday.
Pune pitch curator has been dismissed and his membership terminated, said CoA (Committee of Administrators) chief Vinod Rai and added that they were looking into the issue and in contact with the concerned officials.
