    Sharjeel Khan and Khalid Latif provisionally suspended by PCB

    i.jpg

    The Pakistan Cricket Board have today provisionally suspended two players under its Anti-Corruption Code as part of an ongoing investigation into an international syndicate which is believed to be attempting to corrupt the Pakistan Super League which started in Dubai yesterday.

    Sharjeel Khan and Khalid Latif have been suspended and the rigorous and wide-ranging investigation by the PCB supported by the ICC will continue as part of collective efforts to protect the integrity of the sport.

    Najam Sethi, Chairman of the PSL said: “It would not be appropriate to comment on the specifics of the case, however this investigation is a clear demonstration of our determination to drive corruption out of our sport. We will not tolerate any form of corrupt activity and as this investigation proceeds we will not hesitate to take further decisive action as appropriate.

    “The investigation of the PCB Anti-Corruption Unit backed by the ICC ACU has been effective in dealing with this case to date and we will continue to work in the closest collaboration as the investigation proceeds. We are all absolutely committed to relentlessly pursuing anyone who would seek to damage the integrity of our sport.”

    Chairman PCB, Mian Shaharyar M. Khan said, “I must remind all players of their responsibilities in the fight against corruption. They must understand that if they even think they may have been the subject of a suspicious approach, it is their obligation under the PCB Anti-Corruption Code to report it to an appropriate anti-corruption official as a matter of urgency.”

    “Under no circumstances will the PCB condone actions of a few individuals to bring disrepute to the game of cricket or taint the image of Pakistan.”

    The PCB and the ICC will not make any further comment in respect of ongoing investigation.

      LOL out of all people Ijaz Ahmad is asking for life ban on fixers. The guy along with his brother in law Saleem Malik were the biggest match fixers of their time.

      Its another thing that I also want life ban for these players.

      Something doesn't add up in that geo report.

      The bookie met Sharjeel & Khalid near the hotel before the game. Then the same bookie came running to Dubai after spot fixing news broke out.

      Why did the bookie go back to UK right after meeting the players? And then why did he come running to the scene of crime i.e. Dubai after it was all over the news?

      One report stated that a third player reported the approach to the PCB so that could possibly be Irfan which would be consistent with him being allowed to play on.

      Jamshed the fat pakora was useless. His fielding alone used to be -30 runs to the team even before a ball was bowled.
      Fixing might have saved Pakistan atleast a dozen matches of this pathetic player

      Regardless. All should be banned for life.
      This is beyond belief considering 3 players were locked up not long ago.

      Having said that drug dealers don't stop dealing after getting locked up. It doesn't deter new individuals from dealing either after watching a dealer locked up.
      Same is the case with fixers. These players don't care. They know they will get away with it. There are probably hundreds doing it right now without getting caught.
      Would be naive to think anything will ever change.
      So long as mankind has the ability to lie, there will always be drug dealers, thieves, fixers etc.

      PSL scandal echoes in parliamentary panel meeting

      ISLAMABAD: A parliamentary panel on Monday expressed concern over the failure of the Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) to prevent cricketers from meeting bookies in Dubai where the Pakistan Super League (PSL) is in progress.

      A few days ago, Islamabad United duo Sharjeel Khan and Khalild Latif were sent home from Dubai by the authorities after they confessed to their links to an international syndicate trying to corrupt the PSL.

      The National Assembly’s Standing Committee on Inter-Provincial Coordination (IPC), during a meeting at the Pakistan Sports Complex, discussed the scandal that has jolted Pakistani cricket fans.

      The meeting was presided over by chairman of the committee Abdul Qahar Khan Wadan. As per the agenda of the meeting, it was to finalise the Pakistan Sports Board’s (PSB) budget.

      But at the outset of the meeting, Muttahida Qaumi Movement lawmaker Iqbal Mohammad Ali started speaking on the issue of match-fixing in the PSL and demanded strict disciplinary action against those involved in the scam.

      He also called for resignation of all PCB officials, including PSL Chairman Najam Sethi. The lawmaker, who has been focussing on the PCB affairs, said PCB Chairman Shaharyar Khan was a weak administrator and it was Mr Sethi who was calling the shots at the board and the PSL.

      Mr Ali urged Minister for IPC Riaz Pirzada to order an inquiry into the match-fixing scam which had become a source of defamation of the country in the world.

      The minister said he had sought a report from the PCB and would take action in the light of the findings of the report.

      He defended the appointment of the PCB chairman and said that the government had certainly appointed a right person to the post.

      Rana Afzal said that the committee should wait for the report of an inquiry committee constituted by the PCB.

      After getting a cold response from the minister and the committee, Mr Ali boycotted the meeting. Later talking to Dawn, he alleged that the committee members belonging to the ruling party, including the minister, did not want to take strict action against corrupt elements in the PCB. “It seems that many are involved in the match-fixing scam. Credit goes to the International Cricket Council (ICC) for exposing this racket,” he said.

      He alleged that the PCB management had destroyed cricket of the country and Najam Sethi was trying to turn the PSL into a private company to ensure his future job.

      “I have also written to the Federal Investigation Agency and the National Accountability Bureau, asking them to conduct inquiries into the scandal,” he said.

      “If there is no corruption, why I am not being provided audit report of the last edition of the PSL,” Mr Ali added.

      During the meeting, Mohammad Shafqat Hayat Khan called for including someone from the government side in the inquiry committee.

      The meeting said that the reports of the inquiries ordered by the PCB and the ICC should be shared with the committee in its next meeting to enable it to take action on the matter.

      The committee stressed the need for removing “corrupt elements’’ from the PCB to save reputation of the country.

      Earlier, the panel scrutinised and approved budgetary proposals under the Public Sector Development Programme for projects of the Ministry of Inter-Provincial Coordination and its attached departments for 2017-18.

      The PSB director general briefed the committee on the ongoing, newly approved and unapproved projects of the board.

      During a discussion on the construction of Narowal Sports Complex, the committee voiced concern over delay in completion of the project.

      The IPC minister informed the committee about the reasons for the delay and said that 70 per cent of the work had been completed and the remaining would be completed shortly.

      The IPC secretary told the committee that the ministry had 13 ongoing projects with a total cost of Rs.2119.728 million.

      "Sharjeel Khan did what he had committed to do to the bookmakers" : Najam Sethi

      A top official of the Pakistan Super League (PSL) has confirmed that Pakistani players Sharjeel Khan and Khalid Latif were sent home from the league only after the PCB’s Anti-Corruption Unit caught them red-handed, having made commitments to the spot-fixers.

      Najam Sethi, who heads the PSL and is chairman of the PCB’s executive committee, said the ACU had collected enough material against the two but waited till the players played the first match to see whether they would fulfill the commitments they made to the bookies’ syndicate.

      “We knew what commitments they had made. Islamabad United played Sharjeel but not Khalid. But when the match was held it was confirmed Sharjeel had done what he had committed to do to the bookmakers,” Sethi disclosed.

      Sharjeel was out cheaply after facing a few balls. Sethi said the PCB had faced a difficult situation after the ACU had gathered enough material against the two players to charge sheet them. “We were not sure whether to make the announcement before the PSL began as we feared it could hit the event or after the match but we decided to wait and see what happened in the match and than we sent them back. We were worried how the whole thing could affect the PSL and its reputation but we took a decision which we felt was right,” Sethi said.

      He also confirmed there were other players under investigation in the PSL but insisted matters relating to them were not as serious as that of Sharjeel and Khalid. “Let me assure you we have now taken a decision that we will show zero tolerance for corrupt players and there is no question of trying to protect anyone. If any other player is found involved after the investigations no leniency will be shown to him.”

      Sethi also clarified that it was the PCB’s ACU, headed by retired colonel Azam, which had led the operation against Sharjeel, Khalid and other players. “Yes the ICC’s ACU was also aware of everything but credit goes to our ACU which followed up the whole issue thoroughly and came up with enough material and evidence to charge sheet the players and send them back home,” he added.

      He said there was no question of the PCB acting in haste. The PSL chief also said that when the time was right he would make public more details of the operation and how it was carried out. “Our people are gathering more details which we will share when the time comes and the ICC ACU is also aware of the developments.”

      Nasir Jamshed must be the biggest waste of space ever, literally as he's obese.

      Cheated on exams, was fat as hell in 2015 couldn't field was garbage and unprofessional, suspected of fixing years back which must be true in light of recent events, was stone useless after a promising beginning and then he ropes other far better and more promising cricketers into his style of lazy, corrupt moneymaking.

      What a total ****.

      Yes, it is true. Sethi said it himself on TV that Sharjeel & Khalid have admitted to their crimes and are now asking for forgiveness.

      Watch first 15 minutes or so, if you understand Urdu that is :rolleyes:

      anything less than a life ban would be criminal, excuse the pun, after the whole butt, amir, asif saga there can be no leniency, if anything given these guys have signed professional contracts with the psl franchises i would like the franchises or the psl to sue for damages and violation of contract (doesnt matter if this is plausible or not, need to send out a message), take these guys to the cleaners and rinse them for every penny they have.

      They gave Sharjeel the benefit of doubt and let him show display his own guilt. It is not clear if Khalid did something at the same level from reports yet, we'll know the full story soon.

      Its quite shocking to see that despite the examples of Amir, Asif and Butt in front of us , players still opt for fixing. Are such players so naive or greedy or what ? Unbelievable.

      I bet they thought playing a few dot balls will do no harm. And in return we're getting money for it.. no biggie. It's easy to fall into when the offer is in front of you.
