PSL 3: ATU foils fixing bid after reports from players

DUBAI: Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) anti-corruption unit (ACU) on Friday foiled an attempt by international fixing mafia to taint the country’s top cricket league.
PCB ATU foiled an attempt by two bookies from an international syndicate to approach PSL cricketers via social media networks after players reported them to the authorities.
According to reports, the bookies tried to approach the players via Whatsapp and Facetime mobile apps, but their attempts were countered after the players alerted the anti-corruption unit.
One of the miscreants was identified as Umar from Bangladesh, while the other one was said to be from India. Both of the bookies are on International Cricket Council (ICC)’s blacklist.
The unit held an emergency meeting at the hotel afterwards and reinstated its stance against match-fixing, while also urging the players to be vigilant.
