The International Cricket Council (ICC) has launched an investigation into Friday’s one-day international between Pakistan and England, the sport’s governing body said on Saturday.
The decision was taken after the ICC received information from a British newspaper on the scoring pattern in the match, ICC Chief Executive Haroon Lorgat said in a statement.
“We therefore feel it is incumbent upon us to launch a full enquiry into this particular game although it is worth pointing out at this stage that we are not stating as fact that anything untoward has occurred,” Lorgat said.
“Only in the fullness of the investigation can that be established.”
Pakistan won the game at the Oval in London by 23 runs.
