ICC denies the possibility of ball-tampering

A video of England fast bowler, Liam Plunkett is doing the rounds on social media in which people are claiming that the fast bowler tampered with the ball during the second One-day International (ODI) between England and Pakistan on Saturday, May 11.

When he was made aware of the images on Sunday, Plunkett himself reported the footage to match referee Richie Richardson and said he was only spinning the ball in his fingers.

“The ICC has confirmed that the match officials are comfortable there was no attempt by Liam Plunkett to change the condition of the ball or any evidence of this on the over-by-over examinations of the ball throughout Saturday's ODI clash in Southampton,” said

The incident has been wrapped up as far as officials are concerned but it is a warning to teams that they will be monitored closely during the World Cup.
