    If that’s the case then the severity of his offense is greater, but I was making a general, larger point that curators are mostly underpaid in our part of the world, and bribery and kickbacks are more common than we think.

    Mumbai: Former India fast bowler and pitch curator Pandurang Salgaonkar may be the victim of the professional rivalry, according to the BCCI sources.

    The 68-year-old curator was suspended hours before the second ODI between India and New Zealand on 25th October. This was following the sting operation in which it was revealed that he had leaked the pitch information.

    "According to us, he is innocent and was framed by some professional rivals," a top BCCI official said on condition of anonymity.

    Abhay Apte, the president of the Maharashtra Cricket Association (MCA) did not wish to comment on the issue when approached in Kolkata. Apte along with other BCCI officials was scheduled to attend the first lecture on late Jagmohan Dalmiya.

    The two ICC officials Steve Richardson and Collins, who were in Delhi to investigate further in the matter met the two investigative reporters, who were responsible for the sting operation.

    A final report will be prepared by the reporters once a final decision is taken on the Salgaonkar, who has been temporarily suspended as of now.

    Interestingly, the two ICC sleuths didn't involve any BCCI official in this visit, it is learnt.

    "The ICC had no legal status to forcefully investigate the sting operators. However, the operators did co-operate," the BCCI source added further.

    ICC Suspends Pune Curator Salgaonkar for Anti-corruption Breach

    New Delhi: The International Cricket Council (ICC) has announced a six-month suspension on Maharashtra Cricket Association’s pitch curator Pandurang Salgaonkar following its investigations over alleged charges of corruption made by a News Channel in October 2017.

    Salgaonkar was charged with a failure to report an approach but no evidence was found of him actually having been engaged in corruption and therefore no charges were laid against him on that basis.

    ICC General Manager – Anti-Corruption Alex Marshall said: "We have carried out an extensive investigation based on the allegations made by India Today and the material they shared with us."

    “I am satisfied that Mr. Salgaonkar has no case to answer on the broad allegations of corruption made by the channel. However, as he is bound by the ICC Anti-Corruption Code as a participant of the sport, he has been charged with breaching section 2.4.4 of the Code for his failure to report an approach to engage in corrupt conduct.

    "Mr Salgaonkar has accepted that he has committed the offence and has received a six-month suspension, which has been backdated to 25 October 2017, being the date he was internally suspended by MCA, and he will therefore be free to resume his duties on 24 April 2018,” he added.

    Salgaoncar was suspended by the Maharashtra Cricket Association after being caught in a sting operation, agreeing to tamper with the pitch on the approach of an undercover reporter, posing as a bookie.

    With the tampering allegations surfacing against Salgaoncar hours before the game, there were doubts whether the second ODI in Pune will go ahead as planned. However, the game began on time after ICC match referee Chris Broad inspected the pitch.
