Rashid Latif wants parliament to pass laws on match fixing

Former Pakistan captain Rashid Latif wants parliament to pass laws on match-fixing.

According to him, match-fixing should be treated as a criminal offence and demands that parliament should pass laws to criminalise the act.

While speaking to media in an online session, former wicket-keeper said that the players involved in the match fixing should be limited to domestic cricket after serving their time.

“ICC has made rules and these rules are followed by all the boards but these rules usually allow corrupt cricketers to return. Don’t allow players to return to international cricket, limit them to domestic cricket to maintain their livelihood,” Rashid Latif said.

“Countries have made police case and we need to get laws constituted from parliament and make it a crime in the country. Furthermore, players’ properties should be confiscated as well,” he further added.

“Is corruption limited to players only? Why no questions are ever asked to officials running cricket? We can’t rule out such thing, players are always caught but there should be some eye on officials as well,” he said.
