Pakistan: Pakistan cricket body to probe after player reports corruption

A player taking part in Pakistan’s National T20 Cup has reported an approach from a suspected bookmaker during the tournament in Rawalpindi, the Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) has said.

The PCB on Thursday said its anti-corruption unit carried out investigations before escalating the matter to the Federal Investigating Agency (FIA) for enquiries.

“I have spoken with the player to compliment and thank him for following the PCB Anti-Corruption Code and reporting the approach to the anti-corruption officer,” PCB director of anti-corruption and security, Asif Mahmood, said in a statement.

“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.”

The PCB did not identify the player or give further details.
