National T20 Cup: Cricketer approached by suspected bookmaker during domestic tournament, PCB

Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) on Thursday said that a player in the domestic National Twenty20 tournament has been approached by a suspected bookmaker in Rawalpindi.

The player reported the approach to PCB’s Anti-Corruption and Security Director Asif Mahmood. PCB has not revealed the name of the player yet. 

In a statement PCB has shared that its anti-corruption unit is investigated the matter and has shared details with government authorities.

“As we cannot jeopardise an ongoing investigation, it will be inappropriate for us to share any specifics of the approach. However, the PCB — as a responsible member of the International Cricket Council — will continue to keep the game’s administrative body abreast of the progress in investigations as part of our information sharing approach,” Security Director Asif Mahmood said.

“This is a testament of our regular anti-corruption education sessions as well as the player’s clear understanding of the code and his obligations under such a situation. This also reflects the trust and confidence the players have in the PCB Anti-Corruption Unit, which is very satisfying and encouraging for us.”

 “We are all aware that the game is at risk due to a small number of corrupters who try to entice cricketers for their personal gains and benefit. But there is also no doubt that we can collectively defeat such elements if players strictly abide by anti-corruption protocols and continue to report approaches”, he further added.
