PCB has escalated crackdown against corruption and spot-fixing.
Khalid Latif and Sharjeel Khan’s suspected involvement in spot-fixing came to lime light during the ongoing PSL. They have also been provisionally suspended from playing. While, Shahzaib Hassan and Zulfiqar Babar have been cleared of investigation.
Fast bowler Muhammed Irfan is currently under investigation.
Chairman Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) Shehryar Khan believes that lack of education among players leads them to indulge in corrupt practices like spot-fixing.
“The menace could be eradicated once educated players come to the fore,” he said.
