Karachi: The former International Cricket Council Chairman Ehsan Mani has urged Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) to push for new laws to curb ball-tampering instead of seeking stricter punishment for South African Faf du Plessis as it cannot interfere in that case anymore.

"I don't think the Pakistan board can interfere in this matter now as the match referee has taken his decision according to the laws for ball tampering offences," Mani said.

"What happened is most unfortunate for the image and spirit of the game but the bottom line is Plessis has been punished for his offence and the PCB can't do anything more in this matter," he said. (Also read: Waqar Younis says legalising ball tampering is impossible)
