The ICC and the cricket boards of Sri Lanka, Pakistan and Bangladesh have agreed not to appoint any of the umpires named in the sting operation, recently conducted by India TV, for domestic or international matches pending the outcome of the investigations alleging that the umpires had agreed to accept money to give decisions favouring certain players.

The sting named six umpires: Nadir Shah of Bangladesh, Nadeem Ghauri and Anis Siddiqui of Pakistan ,and Sagara Gallage, Maurice Winston and Gamini Dissanayake of Sri Lanka.

In its statement the ICC said that the umpires named were not contracted by them and so it was the responsibility of the respective cricket boards to conduct the investigations urgently.

Sri Lanka Cricket and the Pakistan Cricket Board had confirmed that both boards had begun investigations into the allegations.
