Sports, Cricket News – The Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) has suspended international umpire Nadeem Ghauri for four years for agreeing to “extend undue favors for material gain” during a sting operation carried out by a Indian television channel last year.
The PCB said Saturday in a statement that Ghauri will not be considered for any appointment during the length of his ban. Ghauri has officiated in five tests, 43 one-day internationals and four Twenty20 matches.
Domestic umpire Anis Siddique was banned for three years. The committee felt he initially resisted the offers during the same sting operation ” but finally conceded to them on their persistence.” AFP
