    The ICC have addressed this and stated that nothing untoward took place.

    Cleared in no time. Has it been Pakistan would have been the perfect opportunity for another pre ICC tourney ban perhaps...

    Wow. From the looks of it the ball looks quite scratchy from only one side?

    When Pakistani player do this, it becomes ball-tampering when English players do it, then its art, clear in no time and whole thing slipped under the rug - Mashallah, it's height of double standard.

    It is indeed very interesting to see this cleared up in less than a day. Just a quick phone call to Plunkett and he says yeah all alright and that's it.

    Liam Plunkett not involved in ball tampering against Pakistan: ICC

    "The ICC is aware of the unverified video that is currently circulating on social media," the ICC said in a statement on Sunday. "The match officials are comfortable that there was no attempt to change the condition of the ball or any evidence of this on the over by over examinations of the ball throughout the game."

    The video does not show any evidence of wrongdoing by Plunkett or any other player and the condition of the ball, if accurately depicted, would appear to be consistent with one bashed around during such a high-scoring game. The ball used in the Royal London Cup semi-final between Hampshire and Lancashire on the same Ageas Bowl pitch the following day did not look dis-similar after 44 overs and 230 runs being scored.

    Exactly, you can imagine how this would have played out if the script was flipped and you had someone like Hassan Ali on video doing that to the ball. There would have been no friendly phone call to Hassan Ali resulting in him giving his word and clearing up everything in a day.

    Even if we take ICC out of it, how in the world can the field umpires let players play with the ball in this condition?

    There is a piece of leather ripped and hanging loose on the right side. They usually have little scisssors to immediately cut such pieces off the ball.

    A ball supposed to last only 25 overs can't get in that condition by normal play

    I don't think liam tampered however Sarfraz should have told the umpires, no wonder we were not getting boundaries. Ball should have been replaced of course, everyone knows how to make a ball reverse perhaps England kept the ball the same to make sure Pakistan find it difficult to hit big shots?

    Yes, but also onus goes to our batters too, why nobody said even a word about ball's condition?
