PCB launches anti-corruption educational programme post spot-fixing scandal

Lahore , Fri, 22 Apr 2011 ANI

Lahore, April 22(ANI): The Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) has launched a programme to educate cricketers and officials on how to "avoid getting lured into corrupt practices" in the light of last year's spot-fixing scandal that rocked Pakistan cricket.


"We have held lectures for all the regional teams including coaches who are part of the domestic structure and also for the national under-19 and A team players and support staff," The Nation quoted former Test captain Wasim Bari, who heads the programme, as saying.


Participants are given lectures on the International Cricket Council's Anti-Corruption Code and the PCB's Code of Conduct.


"We have also distributed a manual based on the ICC anti-corruption code and our own code of conduct in Urdu in all the regions," said Bari.


Bari, who has been organizing lectures to all 22 regional teams, the national under-19 side and Pakistan A squad since late 2010, said that the participants are taught "how to avoid getting lured into corrupt practices" and "how they should interact with strangers and outsiders."


"We are also telling them how to behave in a dressing room... We are preparing them for international cricket," he added.


The disgraced trio of Salman Butt, Mohammad Asif and Mohammad Aamir, who have appealed against their minimum five-year bans- imposed by an the ICC Anti-Corruption Tribunal on spot-fixing charges- to the Court of Arbitration for Sports (CAS) based in Switzerland, have not been allowed to take part in the programme.


"Since they have appealed against their bans, the matter is technically sub judice. So we can't involve them in any program at the moment," Bari said.


The PCB also plans to hire foreign experts in future to give lectures to Pakistani cricketers. (ANI)
