    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.

      Imran Khan is actually defending a fixer, just to score political points. @iAd here doing the same, what Sethi may have done (No proof, btw, just another lie by PTI) has no bearing on Sharjeel fixing.

      Miandad fears for future of PSL

      Legendary Pakistan batsman Javed Miandad has expressed his concern for the future of the Pakistan Super League (PSL).

      Miandad’s comments come after two Islamabad United players – Sharjeel Khan and Khalid Latif – were provisionally suspended and sent home in the midst of a corruption investigation being conducted by the Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) and International Cricket Council (ICC).

      Mohammad Irfan, Zulfiqar Babar and Shahzaib Hasan were also questioned, but not suspended.

      According to Dunya News, Sharjeel was allegedly offered Rs 2 million by a bookie named Yousaf to play two dot balls.

      “I don’t think most cricket boards and players will now be as receptive and supportive for the PSL,” Miandad said. “I fear the top players who care for their reputations will stay away from it. Only those players will come who want to make money.

      “Our league was free of such controversies but now the PSL is also damaged and I don’t think it will be the same again.”

      While Miandad is worried about the reputation of the competition, former Pakistan captain Aamir Sohail was not surprised about the investigation.

      “T20 leagues and tournaments are soft targets to corrupt players and we have seen it happen in domestic T20 matches as well in recent times,” he said. “The PCB should have been very careful while launching the PSL in Dubai which is home to syndicates.”

      Ex-opening batsman and chief selector Mohsin Khan added: “I am saddened by what has happened but we shouldn’t be surprised because the PCB itself is to blame for not taking stringent steps and banning corrupt players for life.”

      As for former spinner Iqbal Qasim, he acknowledged that the PSL’s prestige may have been damaged beyond repair.

      “I am very angry because don’t these players realise the damage they do to our cricket and the PSL with such selfish acts,” he said.

      Sangakkara praises PSL’s handling of spot-fixing

      Kumar Sangakkara, the former Sri Lankan great, praised authorities on handling the spot-fixing issue in Pakistan Super League 2017 and stressed on players to show more responsibility to leave no room for corruption.

      Friday (February 10) saw two players from Islamabad United — Sharjeel Khan and Khalid Latif — expelled from PSL 2017 after they confessed to meeting an individual linked to an international betting syndicate.

      Three other players — Mohammad Irfan (Islamabad), Shahzaib Hasan (Karachi Kings) and Zulfiqar Babar (Quetta Gladiators) — were questioned but were cleared of any wrongdoings.

      Asked whether the incident affected players in the league, Sangakkara, leading Karachi in the second edition of the event, said: “Time might will tell, but for us it’s about concentrating on our cricket.

      “The authorities in place did a good job. It’s unfortunate such a thing like that happened, but the player from our team was cleared of everything and was cleared to play so we were back to 100 percent on the field. For us, it was back to the game as we have great responsibility to respect the game and we never leave room for any sort of corruption.”

      Sangakkara, whose team went down to Quetta by seven wickets, said Hasan was in the right frame of mind to play on after reporting the authorities of an approach and being cleared.

      “We had a chat with him and he was in a very good frame of mind,” he suggested. “Of course he was rattled, anyone would be, but once he was cleared he was relieved. I thought he batted very well and was unfortunate to get out, but he was positive and was good.”

      No lessons learnt from Amir saga: Ramiz

      DUBAI: Veteran Pakistani cricketer Ramiz Raja, while talking to media on Sunday, remarked that no lessons had been learnt from the Mohammad Amir saga.

      He was talking in regards to the corruption allegations that surfaced during the second season of Pakistan Super League (PSL).

      Pakistani cricket has been rocked by the allegations of Pakistan team players being involved and investigated for corrupt activities.

      He said, “We took a pledge at the wonderful opening ceremony (on Thursday). We also stood up for the national anthem.

      And the very next day this happened. This is horrendous, extremely painful.”

      “We did not want it. Pakistan has gone through hell regarding such situations. One more (scandal) to deal with I guess. No lessons were learnt from the Mohammad Amir saga,” the former Pakistan captain remarked.

      Ramiz had steadfastly opposed the recall of Amir back into the international fold.

      “I wanted to make them (Amir and co) examples and not take them back into the system. It is a straight forward call for me. I was not in charge of the game. I just gave my opinion. See it has come back to bite us, unfortunately,” he rued.

      Ramiz said, “If I was the CEO (Chief Executive Officer), I would not have allowed him back. There is no way such individuals should be allowed into the game. The game of cricket has to move and we can always have someone to replace him. No one is indispensable. We got it absolutely wrong.”

      On a general note, Ramiz thought such issues are not exclusive to Pakistan alone and there may be lessons to be learnt from Australia and England.

      “This is not a Pakistan-centric issue. We have to join forces to end this menace. We can create an awareness movement and a healthy environment,” he added.

      He suggested, “May be we need to study the Big Bash League and even English Country cricket which are more or less corruption free. The Asian region is pretty much affected by this menace.”

      The cricketer-turned commentator continued, “We need to introspect as a society. When Amir was caught accepting an offer of 5000-10000 pounds (in England in 2010), he was to sign up with a county for 130,000 pounds the next day.”

      “Sharjeel Khan has signed up with Leicester for 70,000 pounds. From that point to fall to such a low, it is crazy. May be it is because of the upbringing and education,” he pointed out.

      However, Ramiz refused to believe that the PSL, a product, would lose credibility because of the current scandal.

      “I don’t think it is a setback. We have got the England captain Eoin Morgan here. We have got Brendon McCullum. The talent is pool is very good. There is a lot of interest for the PSL,” he noted.

      He also mentioned that foreign players had cooperated with the plan to play the PSL final in Lahore, noting that they had learnt from the past and quick decisions taken by the Pakistan Cricket Board.

      “Efforts should be made to root out corruption from the system. The pros and cons of this kind of activity should be explained to them. Hopefully this will be a lesson for other guys,” the pundit added.

      Finally, Ramiz said he would not want players like Salman Butt and Mohammad Asif back in the international fold as is being demanded by some players. “Of course not, I say that,” he signed off.

      Suspected bookie who met Sharjeel, Khalid identified

      KARACHI: A suspected bookie, who is believed to have met cricketers participating in Pakistan Super League (PSL), has been identified as British citizen Yousuf.

      Reports suggest that Yousuf —a picture of whom has been attained by Geo News —met Khalid Latif and Sharjeel Khan, who were suspended on Friday for their alleged involvement in spot fixing, a day before the PSL kicked off on February 9.

      Previously, International Cricket Council (ICC) had declared the suspect as suspicious but the cricketers continued to meet him.

      A source, requesting anonymity, said that Yousuf went to Dubai as soon as reports regarding spot fixing emerged. However, this could not be confirmed from another source privy to the case.

      Currently, a formal charge sheet is being prepared by the Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) against Latif and Khan.

      Source further revealed that the two players were on-board with spot-fixing. The international syndicate engaged in spot-fixing comprises international and former cricketers as well, the source added.

      The PSL kicked off with a glitzy ceremony at the Dubai Sports City Stadium on February 09, but was soon hit with a corruption scandal involving Islamabad United players.

      Khan and Latif met a suspicious man at a restaurant in Dubai, wherein the two batsmen were given special kind of grease to apply on handles of their bats, according to sources.

      This was meant to help the book-makers present in the stadium identify them. Yet, the players were already on the radar of PCB’s anti-corruption unit.

      Khan and Latif were not just grilled after the first match of Islamabad United, but they were also shown evidences. The two players were then put on a flight back home.

      PCB charge sheet being prepared against suspended cricketers

      DUBAI: The Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) is preparing a formal charge sheet against the two suspended cricketers who are allegedly involved in spot-fixing during the Pakistan Super League (PSL) as reported by Geo News.

      Khalid Latif and Sharjeel Khan, playing for Islamabad United in the PSL — were suspended for their alleged links with an international bookie who attempted to corrupt the PSL.

      Sources said that the PCB has enough evidence that two cricketers agreed and almost made a deal for spot fixing, in a meeting with the suspected bookie.

      This has also been revealed that the name of the suspected bookie is Yousaf.

      "We have good evidence against these two," said the source on condition of anonymity, adding that one player quickly reported the approach to the board while two others remained silent, but they didn't agree to the offer.

      "We are not only preparing a formal charge sheet against them, which will be ready in a couple of days, we are also going to grab the person who connected them with bookies," said the source.

      The source further confirmed that the PCB had prior information of a possible attempt from the bookies and hence, the board was keeping a strict check on everyone.

      Meanwhile, after two days of reluctance and confusion, the festivity at the team hotel start returning on Sunday as players were a bit relaxed and met with fans roaming around in the hotel lobby.

      Afridi calls for life ban on guilty players

      DUBAI: Former captain and Peshawar Zalmi all-rounder Shahid Khan Afridi on Sunday called for a life ban for players who are involved in corrupting the game.

      Speaking to Geo News, Afridi said that spot-fixing in Pakistan cricket would continue until Pakistan Cricket Board set an example by banning such players.

      “These things will continue unless we make an example out of them (players involved in corruption). Ban cricket for them forever. Don’t even let them play domestic cricket. Only then you can stop such incidents”, Afridi said.

      Star all-rounder said that the players know that even if they get caught, they will only have to undergo a five-year ban and then they can continue with their cricket.

      Afridi further said that the player that were previously involved in spot-fixing were on the verge of making a comeback to the national squad, adding that certain people were trying to get them a place in the team.

      PCB, on Friday, suspended two cricketers — Khalid Latif and Sharjeel Khan — for their alleged links with an international syndicate that attempted to corrupt the Pakistan Super League.

      A formal charge sheet is being prepared by the PCB against the two national cricketers for spot-fixing in Pakistan Super League, reliable sources told geo.tv.

      A highly-placed source told geo.tv on Sunday that the PCB has enough evidence that two cricketers agreed to spot fixing in meeting with the suspected bookie, who is named as Yousaf.

      "We have good evidence against these two," said the source on condition of anonymity, adding that one player quickly reported the approach to the board while two others remained silence, but they didn't agree to the offer.

      On Saturday, PSL chairman Najam Sethi said an inquiry into Sharjeel Khan and Khalif Latif being linked to an international syndicate trying to corrupt Pakistan’s T20 league will take 10-15 days.

      “The matter will move forward after the inquiry is complete,” Sethi said.

      Show more responsibility, Misbah tells players

      Misbah-ul-Haq, Pakistan’s Test captain, on Sunday (February 12) urged his fellow players to show more responsibility in the wake of another spot-fixing scandal which has rocked the Pakistan Super League.

      Misbah-led Islamabad United were jolted when Sharjeel Khan and Khalid Latif, two of their players, were expelled from the league after being found in breach of the anti-corruption code. Mohammad Irfan, another of their players, was one of three others investigated but cleared, the other two being Shahzaib Hasan of Karachi Kings and Quetta Gladiators’ Zulfiqar Babar.

      Misbah is known for having played a key role in reviving the image of Pakistan cricket in the wake of the 2010 spot-fixing scandal which resulted in bans on Salman Butt, Mohammad Amir and Mohammad Asif.

      He exhorted his fellow players to show more caution and responsibility.

      “It was shocking to know of the incident and I was very disappointed as it has jolted the team,” Misbah told Wisden India. “I think the incident has increased our responsibilities as players. We need to show more caution which will help Pakistan cricket in the future.”

      Misbah said the players needed to show more focus on the game itself. “It’s a tough situation and we should endeavour to make sure such incidents do not recur in Pakistan cricket,” he added. “I think until the investigation into the whole matter is completed, we should avoid speaking more on it.”

      Last week, Misbah requested the Pakistan Cricket Board to give him more time to decide about his Test future. He stopped short of retiring after the Sydney Test last month which was Pakistan’s third straight loss on their tour of Australia, saying he would decide his future during the PSL.

      Sharjeel, Khalid may face lifetime ban over match-fixing allegations

      DUBAI: Batsmen Sharjeel Khan and Khalid Latif, who were suspended after reports surfaced of their alleged involvement in match-fixing in the ongoing T20 league, may face a lifetime ban from cricket, sources in the Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) told Daily Express on Sunday.

      According to the sources, PCB authorities have already recorded the confessional statements of both the players and will likely present a chargesheet against them on Tuesday. Under the Pakistan Anti-Corruption Code, failure to report match-fixing attempts may result in suspension for six months to life, while taking part in the offence can result in a ban for five years to life.

      The sources said both Sharjeel and Khalid have been accusing each other of wrongdoing after they were sent home from Dubai, where the second edition of the Pakistan Super League (PSL) is being held. Both cricketers were playing for the Islamabad United franchise.

      The T20 league was rocked on Friday when reports of Sharjeel and Khalid’s alleged involvement in match-fixing emerged. Both batsmen were ‘provisionally’ suspended by the PCB and sent back to Pakistan. Sources at the time said the two players confessed to meeting bookies.

      Three more players were questioned a day after although PSL and PCB Executive Committee Chairman Najam Sethi assured the board was not planning to suspend any other cricketers at the moment.

      Sethi himself confirmed that left-arm fast-bowler Mohammad Irfan, left-arm spinner Zulfiqar Babar and opening batsmen Shahzaib Hassan were brought in for questioning on Saturday as part of an ongoing probe into attempts to corrupt PSL.

      Six players are thought to be involved in the PSL match-fixing scandal and players from other franchises such as Lahore Qalandars and Quetta Gladiators are also being investigated by the management.

      Islamabad United – which is defending the title won its first match against Peshawar Zalmi – expressed its dismay over Sharjeel and Khalid’s alleged involvement in match-fixing. The team’s spokesperson said the franchise was following a policy of zero-tolerance against violation of guidelines and rules. He said the team would soon find replacements for the two players.

      I've never done anything wrong: Khalid Latif


      Pakistan batsman Khalid Latif was surrounded by media personnel who pestered him for a statement regarding his recent provisional suspension from Pakistan Super League (PSL) amid corruption allegations.

      Last week, Latif, alongside fellow Islamabad United teammate Sharjeel Khan, was suspended from the league as well as from the Pakistan Cricket Board’s (PCB) central contract after the authorities claimed the duo were involved in spot-fixing. Both batsmen were sent back to Pakistan from the United Arab Emirates, while their mobile phones are still with the board’s anti-corruption unit for further investigation.

      Before dismissing journalists who queried about his involvement in the scandal, Latif claimed he was innocent.

      “As God is my witness, I have never done anything wrong,” he said, before leaving in his car.

      On Saturday, Sharjeel’s father, Sohail Khan, also said the same for son. Addressing the media, the 27-year-old’s father said that it is possible that the opener interacted with someone unknowingly during his stay at the hotel in the UAE, but he believes the left-hander will be cleared of all charges since “he did nothing wrong”.

      “When you are on an international tour, or are playing abroad, then you interact with many people,” he said. “So maybe he met with someone unknowingly who was under the PCB’s radar. But I talked to him and I can assure you he did nothing wrong.”

      He added: “I have taught him cricket since he was 12 years old and I know his character. So I am hopeful that he will be cleared of these allegations.”

      Sohail added that he was talking to the media because Sharjeel himself could not come forward under the board’s code of conduct.

      Meanwhile, PCB sources confirmed to the Daily Express that both batsmen may face a lifetime ban from cricket.

      ICC will not be part of PSL match-fixing investigation

      LAHORE: The International Cricket Council (ICC) on Sunday said it would not be a part of investigation into a Pakistan Super League (PSL) match-fixing scandal that emerged on Friday. The Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) provisionally suspended Sharjeel Khan and Khalid Latif under its anti-corruption code as part of an ongoing investigation into an international syndicate which is believed to be attempting to corrupt the PSL. Both Latif and Sharjeel were part of the Islamabad United in the ongoing second edition of the PSL. “Sharjeel and Khalid 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,” read a statement issued by the PCB on Friday. “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,” it added.

      According to an ICC official, the investigation of players involved is the PCB’s internal matter, but the ICC can help if asked. The official was quoted as saying that the “allegations are related to the PSL”. “The ICC doesn’t have the jurisdiction to get involved in domestic matters or events of a member until requested,” he said. According to a PCB official, there is some evidence against Sharjeel and Khalid, hence they were sent back from the PSL, whereas certain other players who were questioned and cautioned by the PCB’s anti-corruption unit were allowed to continue playing the PSL as there was no evidence against them.

      Former cricketer Ijaz Ahmed says lifetime ban on fixers crucial to keep cricket clean

      DUBAI: Former Pakistan batsman Ijaz Ahmed has urged for a lifetime ban on players found guilty for fixing matches.

      “Players convicted of match fixing or spot fixing should never be allowed to play cricket again. This is necessary to keep cricket clean from such corruption,” he said.

      As to how players can be kept away from corruption, Ahmed believes it is important to inject more money in domestic cricket so that cricketers never consider fixing as an option.

      “Players playing first-class cricket should receive more money. Match fees for domestic cricket are only Rs. 15,000. This is not enough, especially considering high inflation nowadays.

      “Players already receive anti-corruption lectures as part of their training. They should realise cricket gives them so much fame, money, respect. It gives them a future. Despite all this, if somebody goes against the spirit of the game and resorts to corruption and fixing, it is regretful,” Ahmed added.

      The PCB on Friday provisionally suspended Islamabad United batsmen Sharjeel Khan and Khalid Latif over suspected attempts to carry out fixing during PSL. The players were sent home from Dubai and a charge sheet is being prepared against them.

      There was a report of Nasir being the link between players (Sharjeel & Khalid) and bookies, and looks like it was correct.

      These three, and possibly Irfan are the ones on trouble.

      The rest have been cleared and there should be no more suspensions.

      Wipe all these mfs out. There were so many reports of Jamshed being caught and let off with warnings in the BPL. This is also a guy who was caught cheating on his matriculation exams and was shown behind a Pakistani cell on tv. Just shows how low the moral standards of the Pakistani society have really fallen.

      PCB suspends Nasir Jamshed

      DUBAI: The Pakistan Cricket Board, on Monday, provisionally suspended opening batsman Nasir Jamshed from all forms of cricket for violating PCB's anti-corruption code.

      The PCB has yet to officially elaborate the nature and timing of violation but it is understood that it is connected with the recent corruption scandal in Pakistan Super League (PSL) which led to the suspension of Khalid Latif and Sharjeel Khan.

      Nasir Jamshed was reportedly alleged in the media as the player who connected players with suspected bookies.

      The PCB on Friday had suspended Khalid Latif and Sharjeel Khan after an initial inquiry into attempts by an international syndicate to corrupt Pakistan Super League.

      Nasir has represented Pakistan in two Tests, 48 ODIs and 18 T20is.
