The India Today footage of Salgaoncar talking to a reporter, who was posing as a bookmaker, was broadcast a few hours before the match.
India are now trailing 0-1 in the three-match series after losing the first ODI by 6 wickets at the Wankhede stadium in Mumbai on Sunday.
India Today reported Salgaonkar said, "it will be done".
The Pune pitch had been under the spotlight earlier as well. In another exchange, in a vehicle, the reporter asks whether two fast bowlers could be given some help from the match's pitch.
"After reports stating an alleged malpractice from the MCA (Maharashtra State Cricket Association) pitch curator, Mr Pandurang Salgaonkar, the MCA has dismissed Mr Salgaonkar from the position of Curator with immediate effect", the statement read. "It is very good. I guess it will garner 337 (runs)", Salgaoncar disclosed. He had also agreed to manipulate the pitch to suit the needs of two players and even allowed the two reporters to the pitch. He also assured that a score of 337 runs will be chaseable as well. Under BCCI rules no unaccredited persons, including journalists, are allowed near the pitch. Salgaoncar replies that the pitch always helps fast bowlers.More news: 8 feared dead after helicopter crashes into sea

The BCCI immediately appointed Wankhede curator Ramesh Mhamunkar in place of Salgaonkar. "We have acted swiftly and ensured that there are no loopholes left ahead".
The BCCI source further revealed that the match referee will take a final call on calling off the second ODI at the Maharashtra Cricket Association stadium.
"We are investigating the allegations from Pune this morning", an ICC spokesman said.
"I have to tell that the MCA, of course, the BCCI too, along with the Committee of the Administrators (CoA) have zero tolerance on such subjects, so MCA will be making a detailed inquiry on what has happened or what has appeared on television". Amitabh Choudhary, Acting Secretary, BCCI said, "The Board has zero tolerance towards any activity that brings the game to disrepute".
