BCCI Imposes 5 Year Ban on Pakistani Umpire Asad Rauf for Match Fixing
The Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) on Friday reported in an announcement that it has put on a five-year restriction on Asad Rauf, a former cricket umpire and a former First-Class cricketer from Pakistan. A month ago, the Indian cricket load up had conceded declaration of their choice on Rauf, as the Pakistani umpire had asked for more opportunity to set up his safeguard against the charges of his association in the humiliating IPL 2013 spot-fixing and betting scandal. Since the time that the embarrassment broke out, Rauf has denied all of the charges levelled against him and has not ventured out to India to present his case. Pakistan and the International Cricket Council (ICC) even dropped Rauf from their individual lists of first class umpires.
The BCCI said in a release on Friday, “ The Disciplinary Committee of the Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) met today 12th February 2016 at the BCCI HQ, Cricket Centre, Mumbai. Mr Asad Rauf did not appear before the Committee but had sent his preliminary submissions on 15th January 2016 and written statement on 8th February 2016.”
The release added, “The Committee after considering the report of the Commissioner of Enquiry and the written statement of Mr Asad Rauf has arrived at the conclusion that Mr. Asad Rauf is guilty of misconduct and corruption within the meaning of Article 2.2.2, 2.3.2, 2.3.3 and 2.4.1 of the BCCI Anti Corruption Code.”
