Shahzaib Hasan banned for one year in spot-fixing case


LAHORE: The anti-corruption unit (ACU) of Pakistan Cricket Board on Wednesday banned opener Shahzaib Hassan for one year in the Pakistan Super League (PSL) spot-fixing case.

The cricketer was directed to pay a fine of Rs1 million.

Shahzaib is the fourth player found guilty of involvement in spot-fixing in the second Pakistan Super League (PSL).

In March, last year, he was suspended by the PCB with immediate effect from participating in all forms of cricket.

Shahzaib faced charges of persuading fellow players for spot-fixing and failing to disclose approaches as well as details of any such crime.

The PCB’s anti-corruption body handed him punishment on two charges.

The spot-fixing scandal came to the light last year on the first day of the second PSL, which was held in Dubai while the final was played in Lahore.

In December, the PCB anti-corruption unit banned opener Nasir Jamshed for one year for his involvement in the spot-fixing case.

Earlier, Sharjeel Khan was handed down a five-year ban in the same case.

In September, the ACU banned batsman Khalid Latif for five years and asked him to pay a fine Rs1 million over his involvement in the spot-fixing.
