Afridi Sparks Fury with Trott Police Claim; Cricket


Byline: LAWRENCE BOOTH

THE bitter relations between England and Pakistan took another turn for the worse yesterday when Shahid Afridi insisted his team could have reported Jonathan Trott to the police following his fight with Wahab Riaz. On the day Pakistan cricket boss Ijaz Butt called for ICC chief executive Haroon Lorgat to be sacked over his handling of the spotfixing crisis, Afridi further infuriated England by attempting to claim the moral high ground over the Trott-Riaz bust-up at Lord's on Monday. 'When Riaz was returning after warming up, Trott called him a "match-fixer" and said that he was up to harming Test cricket and hit his face with the pad,' said the Pakistan skipper ahead of today's one-day series decider at The Rose Bowl. 'It could have been a police case because it is a crime to hit someone, but we showed a big heart and did not press for it.' A furious England insist the matter is closed after match referee Jeff Crowe spoke to Trott and seam bowler Riaz following their clash in the Lord's Nursery Ground nets ahead of the fourth one-day international.

But their mood will not have been improved by yet more incendiary remarks from Butt, who was in Dubai yesterday to explain to Lorgat and ICC president Sharad Pawar why he accused England of throwing the third one-day international at The Brit Oval last week.
