The England Cricket Board (ECB), asking to avoid cash transactions during the ICC Cricket World Cup 2019, has issued special debit cards to all cricketers, match officials, field umpires and also match referees.
All payments and allowances are to be deposited in this special debit card. The measure has been taken with an aim to hinder the pathway of corruption.
Media reports in England said,
