A series of measures were approved by the ICC Board to deal with the challenge and to assist the Pakistan Cricket Board, who have agreed to the following measures. These are:
1. ICC Board to issue a broad advisory to all players reminding them of their individual and collective obligations to ensure that the integrity of the game is upheld and the severe consequences of a failure to do so.
2. PCB must act and be seen to be acting to uphold the zero-tolerance attitude to corruption in sport. In this regard, the PCB is required to conduct a thorough review of player integrity issues across all authorised cricket in Pakistan and report back to the Pakistan Task Team within 30 days, including that they have achieved the following:
· The implementation of a competency-based education programme for all registered players
· The implementation of a proper, accountable and robust disciplinary process for the sport
· The implementation of a deterrent and detection process to protect the game from corrupt elements, whether it be players, officials, agents or any other individual
· The introduction of a domestic anti-corruption code which mirrors the ICC Anti-Corruption Code.
3. PCB shall desist from taking any actions which might put themselves in a conflict of interest position as regards the allegations that are the subject of disciplinary proceedings.
4. PCB must strongly encourage their players to provide any relevant information to the ACSU on a confidential basis. Any player who comes forward and in that process incriminates himself could, under the ‘Substantial Assistance’ provisions of the Anti-Corruption Code, seek to use his co-operation as a mitigating factor in the consideration of appropriate sanctions.
5. PCB should desist from making public comments and disclosing confidential information which undermine the integrity, reputation and image of the game and/or any ongoing disciplinary or criminal investigation/proceedings.
6. At the same time the Pakistan Task Team will be authorised by the ICC Board, under a revised mandate, to undertake a review and provide a series of recommendations which will help PCB to:
· carry out any reforms which may be deemed necessary to restore confidence in the administration of the game in Pakistan; and
· deliver the above measures.
7. If the PCB fails to carry out the above to the satisfaction of the Board (acting in consultation with the Pakistan Task Team) within the next 30 days, the Board will consider what further action (including, if appropriate, sanctions) is required in the circumstances.
8. The Pakistan Task Team shall be reconstituted with the agreement of the Board.
