Stung by the spot-fixing scandal that enveloped Pakistan during their 2010 tour of England, the country’s cricket board is planning to send a vigilance official with the squad for the Champions Trophy to be played there in June.

“This is still in the planning stage. I would not like to comment on it,” Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) spokesman Nadeem Sarwar told HT. “Security officials go with all teams, but the sending of a vigilance official has not been finalised.”

Former skipper Salman Butt and fast bowlers Mohammad Asif and Mohammad Amir are serving bans after being found guilty of spot fixing during the last tour of England.

“The purpose of sending a vigilance expert is to monitor the presence of any unwanted men around the team in England,” a PCB official told the Associated Press. “The vigilance officer will not be undercover. If he goes, he will be part of the team management.”

He added that the officer will not tap players’ phones but will “ensure no unwanted men come close to the players.”
