Karachi: The manager of Pakistani umpire Asad Rauf, allegedly under the scanner in the Indian Premier League spotfixing scandal, on Saturday claimed that his client has not indulged in corruption and is innocent.

"Asad has no links with any bookie nor is he involved in any corrupt practice. He has had a very clean career," Rauf's manager Shahzad Ahmed told PTI.

"I think it is totally unfair the media has taken it for granted that Asad is guilty or he has done something wrong. This media trial is unjust," he said.
