The Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) is working on a plan in this regard to help players avoid potential match fixers, a PCB official, who declined to be named, told AP news agency.

The ICC banned Pakistani players Mohammad Asif, Mohammad Amir and former captain Salman Butt after their involvement in spot-fixing scandal during Pakistan’s last tour of England in 2010.

The eight-nation Champions Trophy will be held in England between June 6 and 23.

Pakistan are in group B, along with archrivals India, South Africa and West Indies. The group A is comprised of Australia, England, New Zealand and Sri Lanka.
