Pakistan Test skipper Misbah-ul-Haq has expressed disappointment on match-fixing reports in Pakistan Super League (PSL).
According to latest media reports, the Islamabad United captain said that he is hurt after knowing about the issue involving two players Sharjeel Khan and Khalid Latif who were caught by the Anti-Corruption Unit (ACU).
The second edition of the Pakistan Super League (PSL) was hit by a corruption scandal after the PCB provisionally suspended Khalid Latif and Sharjeel Khan for their suspected links to an international syndicate looking to corrupt Pakistans T20 tournament.
Khalid Latif and Sharjeel Khan, both playing for Islamabad United, were sent home and the PCB has issued show cause notices to both players.
Misbah urged the Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) and International Cricket Council (ICC) to further tighten its surveillance against corruption in all formats of cricket.
The Islamabad United skipper recalled that many efforts were made to stop cricket corruption after the 2010 incident in which Salman Butt, Mohammad Asif and Muhammad Amir were caught in spot-fixing scandal by ICC and England and Wales Cricket Board (ECB).
Misbah believes that the Pakistani cricketers should remain more cautious after this incident and that they are currently trying to get over the issue and concentrate on our game. Players from Pakistan should show more responsibility, he added.—Business Recorder
