An undercover reporter of the now defunct News of the World exposed former captain Salman Butt along with pacemen Mohammad Asif and Mohammad Aamer in a scandal that shook the cricket world during Pakistan’s tour of England.
Pakistan Cricket Board chairman Zaka Ashraf said strict measures would be in place when the team compete in the eight-nation Champions Trophy in June.
“What mistakes we committed last time will not be repeated,” Ashraf told journalists when asked to comment on reports that a vigilance officer would accompany the team to England. We have to consider Pakistan’s prestige and respect, and what is paramount for the image of the country. We have to form a code and will also consider whether it should be included in players’ central contract,” said Ashraf.
Ashraf said corruption would not be tolerated in Pakistani cricket.
