LONDON: PCB's Legal Adviser Tafazzul Rizvi told Geo News that the players have said that the money recovered from them was given to them on account of sponsorship contracts that they had signed with different commercial organisations.
The players have accepted that they received money from Mazhar Majeed.
The players also stated that Mazhar Majeed was working as their agent to secure sponsorship deals and they did not know that he was a book-maker.
"The players also showed their written contracts for these sponsorship deals to the police," Rizvi pointed out.
"The players have contested the allegation and also volunteered themselves for police investigations," the legal adviser said.
He also said that the players have been suspended temporarily and they have to submit replies individually.
