Making the Right Decisions

The PCA takes anti-corruption extremely seriously, and has several tutorials in place to help educate its members from making decisions that could ruin their career and reputation.

We advise that members adhere to three very simple rules to protect themselves:

  • Do not bet on cricket
  • Do not become involved in any form of match or spot fixing
  • Do not misuse/leak inside information

Our anti-corruption tutorial is regularly updated and is mandatory for any player registered to one of the first-class counties or regional centres.

Please note players must complete the tutorial that is sent to you via email and not by watching the video below. Any problems please contact

A Positive Obligation

Any suspicious approaches or information should be reported immediately. This is a positive obligation, and can be reported directly to the PCA or a colleague who is close to the player.

Players can inadvertently put themselves in position to be exploited by individuals who build relationships out of any weakness, from fears and favours to their financial situation.

Spot and match fixing is a very real threat to the integrity of cricket. Televised matches are extremely attractive to match fixers and other corrupt gamblers. Your participation in top level cricket puts you at the forefront of this risk.

The above anti-corruption tutorial is mandatory for any player registered to one of the first-class counties.
