    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.

Munna puts his talent of making up stuff to good use for writing boring articles and reports on Cricistan, though he once won the Most Cheerful Poster of Cricistan award.

      Doesn't matter. Cricket is a dying sport anyway.

      Where do you see Cricket in 20 years?

      No one should cry for these two. They deserve it for doing it, and if they absolutely had to do it, being so stupid about it getting caught this way.

      The crime and the incompetence on top of it.

      Lmao can't believe some people here are blaming Amir because some grown up men who can make their own decisions are accused of fixing. Just shows the obsession they have with dragging him into every topic.

      Fixing in IPL - Because of Aamir
      Fixing in BPL - Because of Aamir
      Not reporting a fixing approach in PSL - Because of Aamir
      The weather has been FAR to cold in the last couple of days - Because of Aamir
      All those named in Panama-Gate, all corrupt - Because of Aamir
      Achakzai and Maulana Diesel are being kanjars and not allowing FATA to be merged with KPK in peace - Because of Aamir

      He should have thought about it before he did such act. If he is involved in fixing anything I will be very disappointed in him. Honestly he was one of our only shining stars who seemed to improve as time passed on. Just for a little bit of greed he threw his career away. I hope this does not turn out too bad. But if it does he deserves no sympathy from anyone.

      What is their exact crime and what is it that they are being charged with exactly? Were they caught accepting money to under-perform? Was any money caught on them which was given to them in exchange for a specific act? Did they meet someone they were forbidden to meet?

      They already had a big precedent in the form of Amir, Asif and Butt. Losing 5 years of your playing career, losing 5 years of Cricketing earnings, going to jail for 1-2 years is not a joke. That should have been a more than sufficient deterrent.

      Are these young players being blackmailed, threatened to participate in these activities? Is the amount of money they are offered so much compared to what the PCB pays them, what they get from the sponsors and these leagues?

      It is not just sufficient to ban but to understand the root causes as to what is leading our players to these bookies and nefarious individuals.

      Drug dealers/smugglers get caught and jailed heavy. Yet people still continue to do it.

      u can never extinguish it.

      Give fixers life bans, people will still fix. Habit/temptation never dies, no matter how hard the penalty.

      I'm sure we all saw pictures of Amir crying countless times too over the last 5 years.
      Heck videos of him crying hell were shown to players pleading not to get involved in corruption.
      Despite this if Sharjeel still goes and gets involved then it just shows how stupid he is.
      I don't think anyone will get sympathy like Amir did ever again

      I am going purely by what I read and saw. Sharjeel at the moment is 100% in a lot of trouble. Khalid is still contentious but Sharjeel is definitely screwed



      What a paindoo, he was so marketable, was a rising star. He has himself to blame and should be banned for a long time, the sum being thrown out is insane (by Pakistani standards)

      According to a news outlet who were interviewing a bookie,Bookie said Sharjeel and Khalid agreed to fix two matches and getting more money in return than the whole PSL budget.It sounds like BS

      Amir got Sympathy from the ICC and the Courts, he was also lucky that he just happened to be 18 when caught and not 22-23 at the time.

      Unless there is money found on the players or they were caught accepting the money, how can the players be prosecuted? Just a verbal agreement can't be enough. I mean the crime i.e. fixing hasnt even taken place yet.

      I don't think it's that simple. These are dangerous people with connections to the under world, I doubt they would want to put their loved ones at risk and that is the first thing they think about at the time.
