PCB players refuse to watch Aamer video during ACSU briefing
Lahore: The ICC had to drop the idea of screening a message from banned fast bowler Mohammed Aamir`s on anti-corrruption issues during the briefing of Pakistan players as the squad members told their team manager Naved Cheema that they don`t wish to watch the footage once again.
Other day, a video was to be screened during a briefing session arranged for the Pakistan players by the Anti Corruption and Security Unit (ACSU) of the world cricket`s governing body.
ACSU officials briefed them on the latest ICC anti-corruption codes and showed them videos off how bookmakers try to target players to potentially corrupt them in major events.
"When the time came for the video of Aamir to be shown, some players requested the manager to not air it as all of them had seen it several times before," a source stated.
The manager upheld the players request but insisted they must keep in mind the lessons to be learnt from the spot fixing scandal involving Salman Butt, Muhammad Aamir and Muhammad Asif.
The source added that the ICC anti-corruption officer had made it clear to the players that bookies would try to target the World T20 as it is a money spinning format and that they were duty bound to report any unusual incident or approach by anyone to their manager during the event.
Since the spot-fixing scandal the PCB has constantly educated the players about the anti-corruption laws and codes and the management has also been asked to ensure players don?t mix or entertain anyone outside the team.
