Pune curator dismissed after pitch controversy

However, the match, second of a three-game series, went ahead as scheduled after an ICC observer approved the track following an inspection.

The bowlers were not identified. Salgaonkar was caught in a sting operation by India Today, where he agreed to tamper with the pitch when undercover reporters posing as bookies approached him.

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". "It will be done", Salgaoncar is quoted as saying by India Today. He has reportedly now been barred from entering the ground. It will garner 337 runs. At the same time, the ICC match referee also saw the pitch and said that it is absolutely ideal for an global match.

It was the same pitch which Salgaonkar had worked on with assistance from BCCI-certified curator Ramesh Mhamunkar, who is employed by the Mumbai Cricket Association to look after the Wankhede Stadium.

He also revealed that the pitch would assist the fast bowlers and although hard, the pitch could be tinkered with in five minutes. "We are now looking to establish the facts and will make no further comment whilst this is ongoing". "At BCCI, we reiterate that we have zero tolerance towards any corrupt activity", BCCI acting Secretary Amitabh Chaudhary told. BCCI CEO Rahul Johri said in the release: "Strict action has been taken against the pitch curator and the employment relationship between Salgaonkar and MCA stands terminated".

MCA president Abhay Apte said: "The MCA will be making a detailed enquiry on what has happened or what has appeared on the television".

Highly-placed sources revealed that there was a proposal by the BCCI Operations Team to change the pitch, but ICC match referee Chris Broad inspected and cleared it. "But before we have our urgent meeting, in the capacity of the MCA president, I have taken Mr Salgaoncar under immediate suspension with immediate effect and all his work has been withdrawn".
