"A strict action has been taken against the pitch curator and the employment relationship between Pandurang Salgaonkar and MCA stands terminated", BCCI Chief Executive Rahul Johri said in a statement.

"We have acted swiftly and ensured that there are no loopholes left ahead of the 2nd ODI between India and New Zealand", said Choudhary. Officials gave the match the go-ahead after India's cricket board banned the pitch manager from the ground, following an undercover sting by journalists in which he claimed he had doctored the surface before the game.

The BCCI has zero tolerance on such issues. "Rest assured, if anyone found guilty, strict action will be taken", Abhay Apte, the president of MCA was quoted as saying by India Today. As per reports, BCCI in reply to the clustering corruption allegations has stated that they have taken cognizance of the matter and are further investigating the matter.

The Indian cricket board (BCCI) has sought a detailed report from the local host MCA.

India are now trailing 0-1 in the three-match ODI series against New Zealand, having slumped to a shocking six-wicket defeat in the opening match at the Wankhede Stadium in Mumbai.
