Rashid Latif

Rashid Latif, a former Pakistan cricketer, has slammed the Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) for allowing domestic teams and PSL franchises to sign betting companies as sponsors.

For the eighth edition of the Pakistan Super League, Karachi Kings have signed 1XBAT as their Titanium sponsor (PSL). 1XBAT is a dummy brand for 1xbet, a betting website that is illegal in Pakistan, India, and other subcontinent countries.

Lahore Qalandars, the defending champions, have also signed a partnership with Melbat, a sports website that operates from melbat.live. However, if you search Melbat, the first Google results show Melbet, a betting website. To promote betting businesses, betting websites use surrogate websites disguised as news.
