Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) on Friday suspended two players under its anti-corruption code as part of an ongoing investigation into an international syndicate which is allegedly trying to corrupt the ongoing ‘Pakistan Super League’.
According to the official statement issued by PCB, Sharjeel Khan and Khalid Latif have been suspended and a 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.
Chairman PSL, Najam Sethi did not commented on the specifics of the case. However he clearly stated that this investigation is a clear demonstration of our determination to eradicate corruption out of our sport, adding this, no corrupt activity will be tolerated.
Sethi also said that PCB will not hesitate to take further decisive action as investigation proceeds.
PSL has zero tolerance for practices that corrupt or damage the game. No one big or small is exempt. We shall protect this asset of Pak.
