The ACU may, at any time, conduct an investigation into the activities of any non-Participant that it reasonably believes may be a genuine threat to the integrity of the sport, for example where such individual is actively involved in attempting to corrupt Participants, or where he/she acts as an intermediary for someone actively involved in attempting to corrupt cricket.
If, following the investigation, the PCB considers that the investigation demonstrates that a non-Participant is engaging in activities that pose a genuine threat to the integrity of the sport, an order can be issued pursuant to the PCB Excluded Persons Policy (refer Appendix 2 of PCB Anti-Corruption Code).
Any person issued with an Exclusion Order (an “Excluded Person”) shall, amongst other things, be excluded from having any role in any official cricket, including, without limitation, as a player, coach, official, a team/franchise owner or CEO or COO (or similar), as well as being excluded from participating, attending or being involved in any capacity in any Match or other kind of function, activity, competition or league that is authorized, sanctioned, recognized or supported in any way by the PCB, any National Cricket Federation or any member under the jurisdiction of a National Cricket Federation.

Further, any person issued with an Exclusion Order shall be prohibited from attending any Match played as part of PCB Event.

An Excluded Person is defined in the Code as someone who has been issued with an Exclusion Order by the PCB.
