Hawkins has claimed in excerpts of his book published in the "Daily Mail" newspaper that the 2011 World Cup semi-final at Mohali was fixed and also said that Pakistan's banned trio of Salman Butt, Muhammad Asif and Muhammad Aamir were trapped in the spot-fixing scandal in England.
"I don't think we need to give any importance to the book or claims by the journalist," Ramiz told reporters in Lahore.
"I don't but any of his claims. I can say with certainty the World Cup semi final was not fixed," he said.
"Similarly talk about the three players being trapped or innocent is rubbish. They knew all along what was happening and no one can trap anyone like this. They are serving a ban and they have served their jail sentences so it is useless to talk about them now," the former captain, who is now a well known commentator, said.
Speaking on the current state of affairs in Pakistan cricket, Ramiz said he was not in favor of having too many coaches with the national team.
"I don't support having so many coaches. I am a firm believer that the captain is the one who guides the team and I believe he should be the one in charge of everything," he said. MORE
