Liam Plunkett was accused of ball-tampering.

England global pacer Liam Plunkett has been given a clean chit after being cleared of any wrongdoing by the worldwide Cricket Council (ICC) following allegations that he might have tampered the ball during the second ODI against Pakistan played at Southampton.

Recently, the social media creates flutter as the short video clip surfaced Plunkett "scuffing" the ball which subsequently raised the eyebrows before ICC has reached a conclusion to clear Plunkett of any wrongdoing in the ongoing five-match series against Pakistan.

The ICC is believed to have seen the video and spoken to Plunkett, who alerted them to the footage, and are not concerned that anything untoward occurred.

ICC released a statement after the incident.

"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 examination of the ball throughout the game."
An official of the ICC said that officials were comfortable that there were no attempts to change the condition of the ball and no evidence was noticed during over by over examination of the ball as well.

The 34-year-old right-arm pacer has successfully paved his way in 15-men England World Cup squad led by the star batsman Eoin Morgan.

During the penultimate over that he bowled, Plunkett sent Faheem Ashraf back to the pavilion allowing eight runs while in the overall nine overs that he bowled, he turned over 64 runs.

Recently, England and Wales Cricket Board (ECB) has tightened the noose on players.
