‘BCCI was asleep for 3 years. They failed to present any proof’: Ex-Pak umpire | Cricket

Former ICC Elite Panel umpire Asad Rauf’s career has come to a controversial end. The 66-year-old is currently accused of bribing bookmakers and betting on IPL 2013 matches. Speaking to Cricket Pakistan, Rauf denied all claims and revealed that the jury’s verdict was to prove that he was innocent. “The BCCI, which was supposed to have been an incident in 2013, had been sleeping for three years. He opened the hearing in 2016 and is a forced investigation as there is no truth in it,” he said.

“They have failed to present any substantial evidence against me, and I still have the jury’s verdict stating that any evidence or evidence against Asad’s case is missing in charge.”
