Here’s What PCB is Doing to Prevent Corruption in PSL 3

Pakistan Super League (PSL) third edition is starting on Thursday, February 22, 2018, with opening match scheduled between Peshawar Zalmi and Multan Sultans at Dubai, United Arab Emirates (UAE).

While the fans are waiting for the PSL 3 action to begin, the Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) is doing its best to keep the players away from corruption approaches this year.

PCB has advertised two posts for Integrity Officers for a period of 60 days.

In the period of 60 days, within which the PSL is scheduled in UAE and Pakistan, who will be responsible for keeping an eye on corruption approaches from bookies.

The spot-fixing scandals which rocked PSL in the last year’s edition ruined an otherwise scintillating event.

With players like Sharjeel Khan, Shazaib Hassan, Muhammad Nawaz, Muhammad Irfan and Khalid Latif and even Nasir Jamshed punished, in one way or the other, the concerns over spot-fixing scandals are even greater this year.

Eligibility Criteria for Integrity Officers

The terms include the candidate to be willing to travel to venues for PSL matches, be an Intelligence Course qualified army officer (with field experience) of rank Lieutenant Colonel preferably. Medically fit (Category A) Officers within the age limit of 48-55 are encouraged to apply for the post, as per the ad.

The last date to apply for the post is February 09, 2018.

This is a very cautious yet very important step by the cricket board to ensure that the game doesn’t get infiltrated by such activities.

With army-background personnel looking for such notorious acts, the players, as well as those persuading the players to partake such activities, will hold back.

The PSL 2018 edition will end on March 25, 2017, with the grand finale scheduled in Karachi.

The tickets for PSL 3 are up for sale and here’s how you can buy them.
