Pakistan’s Sharjeel Khan banned for five years

Pakistan batsman Sharjeel Khan was on Wednesday handed a five-year ban by the anti-corruption tribunal of the Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) for his role in a spot-fixing scandal during the Pakistan Super League (PSL) in February this year.

Sharjeel was banned for breaching five clauses of the anti-corruption code of the PCB.

Sharjeel would serve the five-year ban in two phases with two-and-a- half years being a suspended sentence to be served under observation of the PCB.

The ban is effective from February 10 this year when he was first suspended and sent back from Dubai on spot-fixing charges along with another Pakistan player Khalid Latif.
