Acting secretary Amitabh Choudhary said swift measures were taken after media reports surfaced, claiming that Salgaoncar was seen agreeing to tamper with the pitch to suit the requirements put forth by the reporter in an undercover sting.

India's pace spearhead Bhuvneshwar Kumar showed his immaculate control over the cricket ball with a knuckle ball which got the better of New Zealand opener Colin Munro during their second ODI match in Pune on Wednesday.

When they enquired whether the pitch can be made with extra bounce, as two players wanted it to be the case, Salgaonkar said, "it will be done" before adding that it is going to be a high-scoring wicket in any case, with a total in excess of 300 still being chaseable.

ICC officials cleared the match to start after India's cricket board banned an official from the ground after he was recorded saying he tampered with the pitch ahead of the game.

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 pitch curator told them the reporters that the pitch could be customised as per their demands.

The BCCI source further revealed that the match referee will take a final call on calling off the second ODI at the Maharashtra Cricket Association stadium. India were bowled out for 105 and 107 in both innings on a rank turner and that ended their incredible unbeaten run in Tests inside three days. I will attend to it immediately and take strictest action.

New Zealand, who clinched the first one-dayer in Mumbai by six wickets, won the toss and elected to bat, but lost the match by six wickets, with the hosts levelling the three match series at one-all.

"We will look into the matter".

It added it had "zero tolerance towards any such activity".
