Sarfraz had reported about the approach immediately
The matter came to light after the Pakistani skipper reported about Ansari immediately. The ICC ACU started an investigation post that. According to reports, Ansari worked with Sharjah Cricket Council for 30 years. He was also the head coach of the Sharjah Cricket Club.
'Sarfraz Ahmed showed true leadership and professionalism'
"I'd like to place on record my thanks to Sarfraz Ahmed who showed true leadership and professionalism from the moment he reported this approach. He recognised it for what it was, rejected it and reported it," ICC General Manager - ACU, Alex Marshall said.
