The Pakistan Cricket Board has said it can't force umpire Asad Rauf to go to Mumbai to be questioned in the IPL betting and spot-fixing scandal. Rauf was named as a 'wanted accused' in the chargesheet filed by the Mumbai Police on Saturday.

PCB legal advisor Tafazzul Rizvi said as there is no extradition treaty between Pakistan and India, there is no mechanism available to 'convince' Rauf to face the charges in person.

"The PCB has no mechanism to force or convince him (Rauf) to go to Mumbai in case summons are issued to him," Rizvi was quoted as saying. "One thing is clear that he is a retired umpire and this is a matter between him and the Mumbai police and the IPL and International Cricket Council. The PCB is not a party to this," Rizvi said.
