Former ICC legal head David Becker has denied the involvement of suspended Cricket South Africa CEO Haroon Lorgat with regard to any knowledge of his recent statement regarding the Future Tours Programme. It has now become part of an ICC inquiry and Lorgat's role will also be scrutinised in the affair.
In an interview to a leading newspaper said, "I wish to state in the most unequivocal terms that the comments made were my own and Haroon Lorgat had absolutely no role in my making them."
"Haroon Lorgat wasn't involved and nor was he aware about the contents of my letter. It is extremely unfair to draw Haroon Lorgat into the whole thing for it is a figment of peoples' imagination to suggest that he orchestrated the whole thing," he added.
