PCB to relaunch spot-fixing inquiry

The Pakistan Cricket Board will soon set up an inquiry panel to probe into the spot-fixing scandal that last year led to the ban and jail terms of three players — Salman Butt, Mohammad Asif and Mohammad Amir. PCB chief Zaka Ashraf has made it clear that the board had not given up on conducting its own inquiry into the spot-fixing scandal. “We will soon set up the panel because we want to know ourselves what happened and why this scandal took place. We don’t want a repeat of such a shameful episode again,” he added.
Ashraf maintained that the board would take whatever measures necessary to not allow a repeat of the scandal. “If that means taking very strong action against anyone we will do it and even the players must not feel bad about it. Ashraf said that the board didn’t want the players mixing with any shady or suspicious characters like Mazhar Majeed. “We don’t want another Mazhar Majeed close to our team, that is why the security officer of the team has been given specific instructions to enforce the code of conduct in the series against England in the UAE,” he added.
