The card is valid until August and can be used for shopping, payments and at restaurants," the report said. <p></p> <p></p>Until now, the hosts would pay the team manager directly to distribute daily allowances or other payments to the players and team officials. <p></p> <p></p>The International Cricket Council (ICC) has said it had put into place some special measures in the World Cup in cooperation with law enforcing agencies to keep the event corruption-free and protect the players from unwanted offers. <p></p> <p></p>The report said the use of debit cards would allow the ICC Anti-Corruption sleuths to keep track of all financial transactions during the tournament by players, team and match officials. <p></p> <p></p>The report added that the affiliated cricket boards of the ICC supported the move. <p></p> <p></p>The ICC ACU officials are also keeping a close watch on all the people on its blacklist. <p></p> <p></p>Pakistan cricket has suffered a lot in the past due to corruption issues and in 2010 it was in England when captain, Salman Butt, <a href="https://www.cricketcountry.com/players/mohammad-asif/">Mohammad Asif</a>, and <a href="https://www.cricketcountry.com/tag/mohammad-amir">Mohammad Amir</a> were all banned after being found guilty of spot-fixing in the Test series. <p></p> <p></p>Butt was shown receiving cash from jailed bookmaker, Mazhar Majeed, in the videos recorded by the News Of the World tabloid as part of its sting operation. <p></p> <p></p>Pakistan Test leg-spinner, Danish Kaneria, was also banned by the ECB in 2012 for life for instigating a fellow player in the Essex County team to under-perform in return for money. <p></p> <p></p>Kaneria last year confessed to his crime. <p></p> <p></p>At present Pakistani batsmen, <a href="https://www.cricketcountry.com/players/sharjeel-khan/">Sharjeel Khan</a>, Khalid Latif and Shahzaib Hasan are all serving bans for spot-fixing in the Pakistan Super League.
