The Pakistan government will investigate the assets of past and present cricketers after the International Cricket Council charged and suspended three Pakistan players over allegations of match fixing.

Leading Urdu language daily Jang reported on Monday that the Federal Bureau of Revenue has instructed all its regional officers to collect details of bank accounts, assets and even the number of cars in the possession of players who have represented Pakistan over the last five years.

An FBR official, Israr Rauf, was quoted by the paper as saying the Pakistan Cricket Board will also be asked to submit its expenses for the players, selectors, coaches and managers. The ICC last week charged and suspended Salman Butt, Mohammad Asif and Mohammad Amir over allegations of match fixing.
