“In the wake of reports that the Mumbai Police are conducting an investigation into Asad Rauf’s activities, we feel that it is in Asad’s best interests as well as those of the sport and the event itself, that he is withdrawn from participating in the ICC Champions Trophy,” Dave Richardson, the ICC chief executive, said.

It is unclear why Rauf is being allegedly probed in the spot-fixing case and the ICC chose not to comment any further on the matter.
