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.

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.
