Currently Pakistan is having a financial crisis and having a fever of cricket. It has been seen that during Pakistan Super League (PSL) Season 8 most companies like betting company sponsor PSL Franchise like Karachi Kings main sponsor by 1XBAT. This is how betting sites are now slowly penetrating in Pakistan Officially by launching dummy sites in the name of News sharing websites.

PSL Franchises Getting Main Sponsorship From Betting Companies
1XBAT which is proxy site of 1XBet and that is a huge gambling website and have same impact as bet-pro and bet360.
MelBat sponsored Lahore Qalandars which is a proxy site of MelBet.
A lot of people argue that these sites are just news sites but it is not rocket science to understand how slow poisoning works’
It’s also true that gambling is one of the reasons that these events occur and we have seen clear evidence in IPL, Pakistani franchise sponsors and owners are not that pious as well but bringing and promoting such sponsors is another level.
