ICC rejects allegations against umpire Steve Davis

LAHORE – The ICC on Friday made it clear that it has not received any complaint from Cricket South Africa against umpire Steve Davis, reportedly spotted drunk by South African players on the eve of the second Test against India in Durban. “No allegations have been made. The CSA hasn’t told the ICC anything. It’s all nonsense,” Colin Gibson, ICC’s head of media and communications, is reported to have said.
CSA’s media officer Michael Owen-Smith also confirmed that CSA has not lodged any protest with the ICC.
Sources in the South Africa camp were quoted by the daily “Beeld” as saying that some of the South African cricketers frequently saw Davis at a particular bar over the past week and that he was seen stumbling into the Sandton hotel in the wee hours during the first Test at Centurion.
Just a day after South Africa were humiliated by India in Durban, the local media reported that the Proteas were mulling lodging a complaint against the Australian umpire who gave two dubious decisions during the second Test.
