Pandurang Salgaonkar has been suspended, but the match at the Maharashtra Cricket Association (MCA) Stadium began on schedule after ICC match referee Chris Broad cleared the pitch.

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

"I am here just to make one statement because since morning there has been some news which is appearing on the TV on a very disturbing subject, so I have to tell that the MCA, of course, the BCCI and CoA have zero tolerance on such subjects", Apte told reporters ahead of the start of the second India-New Zealand ODI.

Incidentally, curator Pandurang Salgaoncar spoke to Cricketnext on Tuesday and said that he is confident of avoiding a similar fate this time as India play New Zealand in the second ODI on Wednesday. "We have acted swiftly and ensured that there are no loopholes left ahead of the 2nd ODI between India and New Zealand".

The India Today footage of Salgaoncar talking to a reporter, who was posing as a bookmaker, was broadcast a few hours before the match.

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. I will attend to it immediately and take the strictest action.

Salgaonkar is a former fast bowler bowler who 63 first-class matches taking 214 wickets at 26.70 and in five List A games he took 4 wickets. "The BCCI is in touch with the MCA and appropriate measures will be taken with regards to the matter".

Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) asked for a detailed report. "The BCCI will continue to enforce strict measures in case of such misconduct in the future", said Johri.
