Pakistani cricketers been urged to limit their use of social media in order to prevent match-fixing

To avoid any interactions with bookies during the next T20 World Cup, Pakistani players have been urged to minimize their use of social media.

The cricket World Cup is undoubtedly one of the most important international sporting events, and players were given instructions on how to deal with tense circumstances, particularly those involving spot-fixing and match-fixing.

To demonstrate how bookies gain access to players, the cricket squad was presented an anti-corruption lecture that was translated into Urdu. The example of former South African Gulam Bodi, and how he was sentenced to five years in prison, was also highlighted.

Following a series of high-profile incidents, the International Cricket Council (ICC) and individual cricketing boards boosted their efforts to eradicate match-fixing from the sport, resulting in enhanced monitoring and security. This, however, presented a significant dilemma for the bookies, who resorted to using social media to contact the athletes.
