Addressing a press conference here, the board chief Ashraf said, “We have nothing to do with this case, Rauf is an ICC umpire and was officiating in an Indian event and whatever has happened it’s on Indian soil. We were only informed of his withdrawal by the ICC.”

But he did reveal that the PCB intends to form its own code of conduct for umpires.

Ashraf noted, “In our next board meeting we are going to formulate a code for umpires and anyone found violating the code will be punished.”

He also declared Pakistan has moved on from the 2010 spot-fixing scandal which saw lengthy bans and jail terms for three players – Test captain Salman Butt, Mohammad Asif and Mohammad Aamer.

“We have formulated a strict code on fixing and have strengthened our vigilance on players,” Ashraf remarked.
