TAUNTON, England : Pakistan cricket team manager Yawar Saeed has urged his squad to stay strong and "ride the pressure" for the remainder of the tour of England in the wake of the fixing scandal.

Media scrutiny on the squad has intensified following the newspaper allegations of a betting scam involving test captain Salman Butt and strike bowlers Mohammad Asif and Mohammad Amir.

Ahead of the Twenty20 and one-day series against England, Saeed says "everybody has pressures in life _ we have to ride the pressure, not give in to the pressure."

Saeed said Friday that canceling the rest of the tour had "never crossed my mind" and added he was no longer in touch with the three players under investigation. AP
