The Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) will hold investigations to find out if two more players were allegedly involved in spot-fixing, according to reports. According to the Jang newspaper, the names of batsman Umar Akmal and fast bowler Muhammad Sami were repeatedly mentioned during the testimony recorded by the operations officer of the UK National Crime Agency before the three-member anti-corruption tribunal of the Board last Thursday.

Sources in the Board said that they could not send any notice or chargesheet to the two players without first confirming if they were involved in any way with breaches of the PCB's anti-corruption code.

"Their names were mentioned in the testimony and it was revealed by the NCA official that the bookmaker Muhammad Yousuf took their names several times," one source said.
