ISLAMABAD: The Pakistan Cricket Board is working on a plan to send a ''vigilance expert'' with the team to England for The Champions Trophy to help ward off potential match fixers. Mohammad Asif, Mohammad Amir and former captain Salman Butt are serving lengthy bans after being implicated in spot-fixing scandal during Pakistan's last tour of England in 2010.

A PCB official told The Associated Press on Wednesday there is a proposal to send a vigilance expert along with a security official to ''monitor the presence of any unwanted men around the team in England.''

The official spoke on the condition of anonymity as he is not authorized to comment on the subject.

Security manager Waseem Ahmed has been travelling with the team since being appointed soon after the spot-fixing scandal.

Another bad & disgraceful idea. Players won't perform well under suspicion all the time!

The expert is going to do the job safely I guess and no one will be caught this time I guess.

I HOPE THE SECURITY MANAGER WASEEM IS NOT LIKE THE PAKISTANI POLICE. A CRROK CANNOT CATCH ANOTHER CROOK.
