England batsman Jonathan Trott has denied taunting Pakistan wicketkeeper Kamran Akmal in the first one-day international over the fixing allegations surrounding the visiting team.
Akmal reacted angrily while batting to something Trott said Friday in England's 24-run win, forcing the umpires to intervene.
Trott says "we don't talk about (the allegations) on the field" and "I didn't say anything that extraordinary."
England captain Andrew Strauss says "it was nothing I felt particularly concerned about."
Three Pakistan players have been suspended and charged by the ICC under its anti-corruption code. Akmal is also being investigated for alleged "spot-fixing."
The second in the five-game series is Sunday at Headingley.
