The Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) is irked by a New Zealand beverage company’s commercial in which their player Daryl Tuffey has reportedly labelled Pakistan cricketers as ‘match-fixers’.
The advertisement campaign has prompted a reply from the PCB officials, who are yet to view the commercial.
“We ‘ve gone through reports about the commercial which suggest it’s offensive towards Pakistan players, which is condemnable but we’ll decide over any action only after looking at it,” a PCB official told The Express Tribune.
The commercial portrays Pakistan players as match-fixers and while New Zealand win matches, Pakistan take home the cash.
