Spot Fixing Scandal News
KARACHI: The Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) has summoned fast bowler Muhammad Irfan
and Shahzaib Hassan in connection with the inquiry of a spot fixing scandal that hit the
second edition of the Pakistan Super League (PSL).
The summons were issued by the Anti-Corruption Unit of PCB asking both the
cricketers to appear before the authorities on Monday and Tuesday next week.
Both the cricketers were also grilled during the PSL tournament after PCB suspended
Islamabad United duo Sharjeel Khan and Khalid Latif over spot fixing scandal.
The two cricketers are accused of reporting alleged contact by the bookies under the contract.
PCB Chairman Shaharyar Khan had told media both suspended cricketers were involved in spot-fixing, adding that the suspects would be given the chance to defend themselves against all allegations leveled against them.
“As soon as our Anti-Corruption Wing got to know about the entire episode, it took action,” he said.
“Everything is in our hands. We will decide the case and we will hand out the punishments,” he had said.
