On PCB complaint against Sutherland ICC refuses to act

The ICC has refused to act on a PCB complaint against Cricket Australia CEO James Sutherland for stating that Pakistan was not doing to curb corruption in cricket, saying that it was matter between the boards.

Last week, a PCB official said it was still waiting for a reply from the ICC on the letter it had sent to them asking them to inquire in to the statement made by Sutherland recently.

But sources said the ICC had, on April 27, sent a letter to PCB Chairman, Ijaz Butt informing him the ICC could not interfere in the matter.

The ICC, in its reply, has said that this is a matter between the Pakistan & Australian cricket boards, a source said.

It has advised the PCB to take up their grievances directly with Cricket Australia, they added.

Sutherland, in a recent interview to the Age, said that they didn't think that the PCB had done to implement the recommendations of the Justice Malik Qayyum document in to match-fixing that was given in 2000.

The source said the ICC had told the PCB it could not become a party in this case as it was an issue that needed to be handled by the boards.

Sutherland said if the PCB had done , the spot-fixing scandal involving Salman Butt, Muhammad Asif & Muhammad Aamir might have been avoided.

The source said the PCB was now likely to take up the matter directly from cricket Australia & ask for a response from them.
