Pakistani cricketer Hasan Raza responds to the allegations levelled after the Al Jazeera video of spot fixing

ISLAMABAD - Former Pakistan batsman Hasan Raza has responded to the allegations of spot fixing levelled in the Al Jazeera video.

He said the video shown by Al Jazeera as part of its investigative documentary is an old clip that is used to “trap him”.

Raza said the video is from Ajman where he had gone for a local tournament.

A video has recently surfaced showing Raza in the presence of another man talking about facilitating spot-fixing in T20 tournaments.

Raza said he had not informed the Pakistan Cricket Board about going to Ajman as he was not on its central contract list and hence was not in frequent contact with the board.

However, according to the former batsman, when he suspected fixing was under way for matches he backed out of the discussion.

“I have reported match-fixing to International Cricket Council in the past [as well],” Raza said.

However, he ensured complete corporation with ICC and PCB regarding investigation into the allegations.
