  • The left-handed batsman was suspended on suspicion of breaching PCB's Anti Corruption Code

The Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) on Wednesday handed top-order batsman Sharjeel Khan a five-year ban as he was convicted guilty in the spot-fixing scandal that stained the Pakistan Super League earlier this year. The retired Justice Syed Asghar Haider along with former PCB Chairman Lt Gen (R) Tauqir Zia and ex-Test cricketer Waseem Bari were investigating the PSL spot-fixing case.

Half of Sharjeel's sentence will be suspended if he goes through the PCB's rehabilitation process.

While talking to media, lawyer of Sharjeel Khan said that after reading detailed verdict, we will file review petition. "The charges have been proven".

Sharjeel stood with his lawyer during a news conference but didn't take any questions. Even the other party, PCB are not happy with the decision and its legal advisor Tafazzul Rizvi said that the board was not happy with the punishment.

After this ban, Sharjeel will not be able to play global as well as domestic cricket. "The judgement is a proof that all the evidence was strong enough against player".
