LAHORE - The Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) has received assurance from England & Wales Cricket Board (ECB) that the ECB has not passed any judgment on Pakistan cricket and that the ECB has not suggested that there was anything to be concerned about during the Pakistan and West Indies series. 

“This was received in response to the PCB's query on a statement attributed to an ECB official which appeared in a British newspaper regarding allegations of fixing in the recently-concluded Pakistan and West Indies series," said PCB spokesman here on Tuesday.

The ECB has confirmed that their official has not stated that the series should be investigated. The ECB has also approached the newspaper to seek a suitable clarification. “The PCB maintains a zero tolerance approach towards corruption but also feels it to be its obligation to protect Pakistan cricket from baseless allegations,” he added.
