Naved ul Hasan denies involvement in Bangladesh Premier League's spot fixing scandal

Karachi, Tue, 06 Mar 2012 ANI

Karachi, Mar 6(ANI): Former Pakistan pace bowler Rana Naved ul Hasan has denied involvement in the alleged spot fixing in the Bangladesh Premier League (BPL).


"The authorities in Bangladesh spoke with me during the BPL about what had occurred and showed me a picture of the man they had arrested. I informed them that I recognised the man in the photograph having met him at a domestic match in Karachi last year," quoted him, as saying.


"That day after the domestic match in Pakistan he had approached me along with many other individuals as a fan. After that day I never saw him again or heard from him at all. I provided the Bangladeshi authorities with the information they needed from me and as far as I am concerned there is nothing more to it. I have no idea how he obtained my email address," he added.


His statement comes after the Bangladesh Police arrested a Pakistan citizen Sajid Khan on the suspicion of spot-fixing during a key match in the country's recently concluded inaugural Twenty20 cricket league.


Rana who was a member of the Dhaka Gladiators squad - winners of the inaugural edition of the BPL - praised the Bangladesh Cricket Board for the tournament's success and said that the event could become a major part of the international calendar in future.


"The BPL was very enjoyable, I had a really good time and it was a fantastic tournament to be part of. There were players from all over the world and considering this was the first such tournament in Bangladesh the organisers and everyone involved in the tournament should be very pleased. I feel that the BPL could become an integral part of the international cricketing calendar in years to come," he said.


"It was good to be playing alongside and against a number of Pakistani cricketers who were all good ambassadors for the country. Some of them performed really well in Bangladesh, including Mohammad Sami, Ahmed Shehzad, Imran Nazir, Kamran Akmal and Sohail Tanvir," he added. (ANI)
