PCB to hold anti-cor­rup­tion sem­i­nars as part of re­form process

The Pak Banker - - International3 -

KARACHI: The Pak­istan Cricket Board (PCB) will hold anti-cor­rup­tion sem­i­nars and work­shops this month to ed­u­cate play­ers and of­fi­cials be­long­ing to the re­gional and de­part­men­tal teams about the In­ter­na­tional Cricket Coun­cil's (ICC) anti-cor­rup­tion code of con­duct. "The move is a part of the re­forms be­ing car­ried out by the PCB to im­prove the en­force­ment of the anti-cor­rup­tion code in do­mes­tic cricket," the Daily Times quoted a PCB spokesman, as say­ing.

The spokesman said that the se­cu­rity man­ager would be ed­u­cat­ing the play­ers and of­fi­cials of do­mes­tic teams about the ICC's anti-cor­rup­tion mea­sures as well as those be­ing en­forced by the PCB. "It is an at­tempt to en­sure that no player or of­fi­cial can ever say he was not aware of cer­tain clauses of the code," the spokesman added. The ICC had given the PCB a dead­line of one month to in­tro­duce re­forms in its cricket struc­ture af­ter the spot-fix­ing scan­dal in­volv­ing key Pak­istani play­ers broke out in Au­gust. The ICC's in­ten­tion be­hind in­tro­duc­ing re­forms in Pak­istan cricket was aimed at en­sur­ing that an­ticor­rup­tion mea­sures were im­ple­mented prop­erly and se­ri­ously. -PB News
