ICL: Indian Cricket League

Case of Inzamam is in safe hands now


Pakistan have been assured by their British team of lawyers who believe the tourists would go into an International Cricket Council (ICC) hearing with a strong case.

The Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) has hired DLA Piper to assist them in the bid to clear their team of ball tampering charges levelled by the ICC following The Oval Test fiasco. According a spokesman of DLA Piper, Pakistan have a strong case and there are good chances that they would come out unscathed from the ICC hearing.

The ICC has charged the Pakistan captain Inzamam-ul-Haq of ball tampering and bringing the game into disrepute after Sunday’s incidents at The Oval and could ban him for up to four Tests or eight one-day matches if found guilty. The hearing which was scheduled for Friday in London was however postponed after the ICC adjudicator Ranjan Madugalle made himself unavailable because of an illness in the family.

Ready to fight the charges in a forceful manner, the PCB has hired a top legal team from DLA Piper to represent Inzamam. At the forefront of the team is Mark Gay, a renowned sports lawyer who has made his name in high profile cases involving the British tennis player Greg Rusedski and Manchester United player Rio Ferdinand.
