Alleged match-fixing sparks controversy ahead of Blackcaps v India ODI

As per reports, the sting operation done by INDIA Today has brought the 2nd ODI between the Kewis and Team India to a standstill after Pune pitch curator Pandurang Salgaoncar was seen providing the intriguing details to bookies who were apparently "disguised as bookies".

New Zealand were just out 230-9 after a pitch-tampering controversy threatened to disrupt the second one-day global in Pune on Wednesday.

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.

Earlier this year as well, Salgaoncar was in the dock when ICC match referee rated Pune's pitch as poor after the end of the first Test between India and Australia. "Rest assured, if anyone found guilty, strict action will be taken", Abhay Apte, the president of MCA was quoted as saying by India Today.

Indian bowlers, especially new ball colleagues Bhuvneshwar Kumar (three for 45) and Jaspreet Bumrah, laid the foundation for their comprehensive victory by restricting New Zealand to 230 for nine after the tourists opted to bat.
