ICC head promises ruthless action

6:45 am on 31 August 2010

The International Cricket Council's president Sharad Pawar says "ruthless actions" will be taken if any player is found guilty in the Lord's spot-fixing scandal,.

Pawar told a news conference in Mumbai the governing body is waiting for police in London to finish investigating allegations that Pakistan's Mohammad Amir and Mohammad Asif bowled three deliberate no-balls by pre-arrangement in the Lord's test against England.

He says he is absolutely confident that the England Pakistan Boards will never encourage or protect anybody who has done a wrong thing.
