The International Cricket Council (ICC) has been quite strict and vigilant regarding match-fixing in cricket as it tarnishes the reputation of the game. The ICC Anti-Corruption Unit has been closely monitoring all the franchise leagues around the world as bookies often turn to the shortest format to earn big bucks.
Pakistani cricketer Umar Akmal has reported a fixing attempt to the anti-corruption unit of the Global T20 League in Canada and the Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB). According to Akmal’s statement, former Pakistani cricketer and an official of his franchise, Winnipeg Hawks, Mansoor Akhtar offered him money to fix matches.
The anti-corruption unit of the franchise league has warned the players against a couple of people who are involved in suspicious activities and has asked them to refrain from contacting him anywhere.
