The Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) will reportedly ban the use of social media during the upcoming England series and direct the players to shun approaches by the unknown individuals in order to avoid any unpleasant event during the tour.
Pakistan is scheduled to play against England in three Tests and three Twenty20 Internationals (T20Is), with the matches likely to be played between August 5 and September 1 in Manchester and Southampton.
Reportedly, bookies and match-fixers are trying to swindle players through sponsorship deals and offers. They might try to persuade players in the guise of representatives of team owners from different franchise tournaments and invite them to attend events and parties in order to trap them. These individuals might make use of fake names and untraceable numbers.
