Sharjeel Khan Banned For 5 Years By PCB
Pakistan Cricket Board’s (PCB) anti-corruption tribunal slapped a five-year ban against opening batsman Sharjeel Khan. It was said that for next two and a half years Khan will not be allowed to play domestic and international cricket. On the violation of five clauses, a charge sheet against the opening batsman was given on February 18. The hearing of Khan’s case started on March 24 this year. Speaking to the press, PCB Legal Advisor Taffazul Rizvi said that Sharjeel Khan is found guilty on all accounts.
Khan had denied involvement in relation to allegations of spot-fixing during the Pakistan Super League 2017. He had said to his journalist that I have not done anything wrong. Everything will get clear soon.
Sharjeel khan along with Islamabad United teammate Khalid Latif, was provisionally suspended by the PCB during the opening week of the PSL following an initial inquiry into an alleged attempt by an international syndicate to corrupt Pakistan’s T20 tournament. The two could face a ban of 2-5 years and a two million rupees fine.
Both the players were formally charged by the PCB over alleged spot-fixing under its anti-corruption code last Friday.
They were also presented with evidence of spot-fixing, the PCB lawyer had said.
