Sharjeel khan And Khalid Latif Suspended
The Pakistan Super League 2017 was rocked on Friday (February 10) after Khalid Latif and Sharjeel Khan, two players from Islamabad United, were provisionally suspended from the rest of the tournament and sent back home to Pakistan after being suspected of spot-fixing.
Islamabad, the defending champions, got their campaign off to a winning start on the opening day of the tournament on Thursday by defeating Peshawar Zalmi by seven wickets on the Duckworth-Lewis method. Opening the innings, Sharjeel made one off four deliveries while Khalid Latif was not a part of the playing XI.
The Pakistan Cricket Board confirmed that the duo had been suspended under their Anti-Corruption Code as part of an ongoing probe into an international syndicate suspected of trying to ‘corrupt’ the PSL.
“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,” the PCB said in a press release.
