PCB ban Sharjeel for five years

Qasim lauds Sethi for restoring int’l cricket in Pakistan

"Even though the ban is technically for two and half years but my client is concerned that he can't play cricket until August 2019", Ejaz said.

Spot-fixing is where the outcome of a particular passage of play is pre-determined, as opposed to fixing the outcome of a match.

A statement from PCB chairman Najam Sethi read: "The anti-corruption tribunal verdict against Sharjeel Khan is a vindication of our policy of zero tolerance against corrupt practices in the game of cricket".

Sharjeel Khan and Khalid Latif, two players from Islamabad United, were found guilty of spot-fixing.

"We were expecting acquittal against the spot-fixing charges and we are going to appeal against them", Ijaz was quoted as saying by ESPNcricinfo.

Opener Sharjeel, who has played one Test and 40 limited-overs matches for his country, was banned for five years - half of which has been suspended - at a tribunal hearing on Wednesday. "The charges have been proven".

Mother drowns trying to save toddler during Hurricane Harvey flooding
A mother in Texas has died as she tried to get herself and her daughter to safety in the aftermath of Hurricane Harvey . The child is in stable condition, where she will be released into the care of family members later today.

In early 2011, another Pakistan captain Salman Butt, and Pacers Muhammad Aamir and Muhammad Asif were given minimum five-year bans by an ICC anti-corruption tribunal for spot- fixing during the series in England in 2010.

Under the PCB code players can appeal rulings before an independent arbitrator within 14 days of the decision.

Sharjeel and fellow Islamabad United player, Khalid Latif, were placed under immediate suspension by the PCB in the aftermath of the scandal.

Irfan and Nawaz admitted not reporting the bookie's offer. He received a six-month ban with six months suspended and was also fined one million rupees.

"We have strong reservations against it as the onus is not on Sharjeel Khan to prove his innocence". Misbah said of the PCB investigation.
