But these cricketers are seen in the advertisement of many brands, but sometimes due to these ads, they also get into controversies. Fans are very keen to know the life of their favorite players closely, which many companies take advantage of.

Recently, England coach and former Kiwi skipper Brendon McCullum was in trouble for appearing in online betting advertisements, which was being investigated by the England and Wales Cricket Board (ECB). Recently, the ECB made the matter clear by declaring McCullum innocent.

England head coach Brendon McCullum was being investigated by the ECB for a breach of its anti-corruption rules due to online betting advertisements. The former New Zealand captain McCullum became the brand ambassador of betting company ’22bet’ in January, and since then, he has continued to appear in its online ads. He shared a video on his Facebook page on March 27 in which he is promoting 22bet in the Indian Premier League.

In such a situation, the ECB, after its investigation, has declared McCullum innocent in this matter. The ECB said that McCullum had done nothing wrong. It is understood that the anti-corruption code signed by players and coaches does not prohibit such brand ambassador roles.

Along with this, an ECB official said that the matter had been investigated for a long time, but the final decision was that no action would be taken against McCullum.
