PCB Responds to Match-Fixing Allegations Against Pakistan Cricket Team

PCB match-fixing response

The Pakistan cricket team, led by Babar Azam, faces serious allegations of match-fixing and spot-fixing on social media. In response, the Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) has demanded evidence from those making these claims, threatening legal action against baseless accusations. Although the PCB has not released an official statement, a source confirmed their awareness of the “negative comments” and dismissed the allegations as unfounded. The PCB emphasized that criticism within the sport is acceptable but will not tolerate false accusations. They have instructed their legal department to issue notices demanding proof, warning of defamation claims if evidence is not provided. The PCB sees no reason to investigate further unless credible proof is presented.

Following Pakistan’s early exit from the T20 World Cup 2024, the team has faced harsh criticism from former cricketers and administrators, citing issues like poor fitness and lack of intent. Pakistan’s campaign was marred by initial losses to debutants USA and former champions India, which they could not recover from despite winning their last two matches.

Adding to the controversy, journalist Mubashir Lucman alleged that Babar Azam received a costly Audi e-Tron GT, questioning the source of this gift. Lucman suggested in a viral video that the car, worth around INR 2 crore in India, was suspiciously acquired, implying deeper issues within the team. The video has sparked mixed reactions online, with some defending the team and others questioning the integrity of the players.
