ICC not to investigate Sydney Test: Lorgat

ICC chief executive Haroon Lorgat said the governing body did not have "sufficient evidence" to warn the Australian authorities about Majeed's activities during the January series.

Australia won the Sydney Test after Pakistan suffered a dramatic collapse and committed several fielding errors. In a sting operation conducted by a British tabloid a some weeks ago, Majeed was shown boasting that the match had been fixed.

But Lorgat insisted that the ICC will not launch a re-investigation unless "credible evidence comes forward.""We've kept it open, we concluded in the end it was a dysfunctional team," he told 'ABC' channel.

Asked whether the ICC should have issued an advisory when it came to know of Majeed's presence in Sydney, Lorgat said, "these are leads that we have to follow through and be quite confident before we make allegations and it was the subject of an ongoing investigation and we weren't in a position to make any allegations.""We were not satisfied of the extent of his activities and we needed to be quite confident before we levelled any accusations," he said.
