India v New Zealand

The second ODI between India and New Zealand which is scheduled in Pune has come under scanner after Pune pitch curator Pandurang Salgaoncar was seen giving inside information to reporters disguised as bookies, in a sting operation done by Generalist.

Salgaoncar was dismissed by the Maharashtra Cricket Association (MCA) and replaced by curator Ramesh Mhamunkar.

The second ODI between India and New Zealand at MCA Stadium in Pune is less than an hour away from now, but it has already been shrouded with controversy.

New Zealand, who clinched the first one-dayer in Mumbai by six wickets, won the toss and elected to bat, but lost the match by six wickets, with the hosts levelling the three match series at one-all.

This comes after reports emerged that Salgaoncar had agreed to "tamper" the pitch after some television reporters, posed as bookies, approached him.

"The International Cricket Council (ICC) Match Referee Mr Chris Broad inspected the pitch ahead of the match and cleared the same for the game to go ahead".
