Local media claimed that Pakistan captain Sarfraz Ahmed had been approached during the ongoing one-day series against Sri Lanka in the United Arab Emirates.

Pakistan captain Sarfraz Ahmed was the target of an allegedly corrupt approach after the third ODI against Sri Lanka on Wednesday, multiple sources have confirmed. However, the player refused and immediately reported the incident to the Pakistan Cricket Board and the team management.

Still, what remains true and constant is the celebration of life, its enjoyment, and a great sense of goodness. Diwali is marked with fireworks , festive meals and exchange of candies and gifts.

In a tweet sent out today (Saturday), the PCB Chairman said that, yes, a player had indeed been approached by a spot-fixer and had offered him a chance to join in.

Nevertheless, the PCB has tightened security measures for the Pakistan team for the remainder of the tour and has also issued curfew orders to not step out of their hotel after a particular time.

North Korea to keep up nuclear tests
North Korea has also repeatedly threatened to detonate a nuclear device aboveground in what could be its most unsafe and provocative move ever.

Bans for failing to report an approach range from six months to life.

"ICC rules don't allow us to name player (s) in such cases where approaches are reported but yes Sarfraz got an offer and he immediately reported the matter to the concerned officials, who have taken appropriate action", the source added.

Polestar to go electric-only
The 3 is described as a "larger SUV-style BEV" and "a modern expression of electric performance and driving dynamics". Volvo has committed to produce only electric vehicles from 2019.

The PCB had already changed the hotel of the national team in Dubai following the PSL spot-fixing scandal earlier this February.
