I will be happy to face ICC’s ACSU inquiry: Asad Rauf

Embroiled in the IPL spot-fixing scandal, Pakistani umpire Asad Rauf on Wednesday broke his silence for the first time ever since his name cropped up in the Mumbai police’s investigation, saying he was ready to face the ICC’s Anti Corruption and Security Unit to clear his name.

‘Money, gifts, spot-fixing and match-fixing have never been my goal and target. They have never been a topic in my life,’ Rauf said.

‘If there is an inquiry by the ICC’s Anti Corruption and Security Unit, then I will be happy to face the inquiry and answer all their queries,’ he added, while dismissing all allegations against him.

The raging spot-fixing saga in the IPL turned murkier with the controversial umpire’s withdrawal by the ICC from next month’s Champions Trophy in England for his alleged role in the scandal, which is growing bigger by the day.
