Troubled Pakistani umpire Asad Rauf will fight to clear his name in an ongoing spot fixing scandal in India, family sources told AFP on Saturday, saying he had returned to his home in Lahore.

The International Cricket Council (ICC) this week withdrew the 57-year-old umpire from next month's Champions Trophy in England in the wake of media reports that he was under police investigation.

Rauf’s family said he returned to his home in Lahore a few days ago. “Rauf has nothing to hide, he reached Lahore after completing his matches in the league (in India),” a family source told AFP.
