Pakistan Cricket Board’s (PCB) Anti-Corruption Tribunal on Wednesday banned opener Sharjeel Khan for five years over a spot fixing case that has rocked the Pakistan Super League, the latest scandal to taint the sport in the cricket-crazy country.
“Sharjeel is banned for five years, which has two-and-a-half year suspended, after the proceedings of the case,” said Asghat Haider, who headed the three-member tribunal, which included former PCB Chairman Lt Gen (R) Tauqir Zia and ex-Test cricketer Waseem Bari.
During the sophomore season of its prized T20 league this year, Pakistan cricket faced a moment of infamy when it occurred that several of its cricketers were embroiled in a fresh spot-fixing scandal.
The board at that time reacted immediately, suspending Sharjeel Khan and Khalid Latif before adding some other names to the list.
