Kamran Akmal Undeterred By Match Fixing Allegations

By on March 1, 2010

Accused of match-fixing, Pakistan’s wicketkeeper-batsman Kamran Akmal, on Sunday said he is not bothered by the allegations and is focussing on his game to give his best in the World Twenty20 championship beginning April 30 in the West Indies.

The former Pakistan vice-captain said at the National Stadium that such damaging reports are being spread by elements seeking to destabilise Pakistan cricket.

“These false reports do not bother me and I will continue to focus on my game. I want to give my best performance for my country,” said the Lahore-based Akmal who is in Karachi to feature in the National Twenty20 championship which began on Sunday.

However, Akmal made it clear that he might consider suing the media organisations which accused him of being involved in match-fixing.

“It is a huge allegation and I will decide on my response after discussing the issue with my lawyer and the Pakistan Cricket Board.”

Media reports over the last couple of days have suggested that Akmal and experienced Pakistan all-rounder Rana Naved-ul-Hasan are under investigation for match-fixing.

Rana Naved has also strongly denied the accusation and has threatened to take legal action over the issue.
