The Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) is seeking life bans on Sharjeel Khan and Khalid Latif for their alleged role in spot-fixing during the second edition of the Pakistan Super League (PSL) in Dubai.
PCB legal advisor Tafazzul Rizvi said the Board was taking all corruption and fixing issues as zero tolerance and no leniency would be shown to any player found guilty.
“Yes, we are pushing the tribunal to impose a life ban on both the players. We have given enough compelling evidence against them and about their involvement in the spot-fixing case,” Rizvi said. The tribunal headed by a retired Lahore High Court judge is expected to give its verdict on Sharjeel Khan later this month. It has also directed the lawyer for Khalid to submit a final written submission by August 9.
