Pakistan team manager Yawar Saeed denied on Sunday that cricket in his country was riven by corruption in the wake of claims players had taken part in a betting scam in the Test match against England.

Asked if the British newspaper claims against his team proved that Pakistani cricket was "institutionally corrupt", Saeed told Sky Sports: "I would not like to say that."

"This is the first time I've been the manager and we've been involved in such a thing.

"Yes, one has heard and one has read (allegations), but I would not like to go that far."
