Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) has suspended fast bowler Mohammad Irfan for violating its anti-corruption code during the Pakistan Super League. Irfan was under the scanner during the first week of PSL and now has been suspended from by the board.
A PCB spokesperson confirmed this news saying Irfan had violated code article 2.4.4 according to which implies: “Failing to disclose to the PCB Vigilance and Security Department (without unnecessary delay) full details of any approaches or invitations received by the Participant to engage in Corrupt Conduct under this Anti-Corruption Code.”
Reports also suggested that Irfan had a meeting with the PCB officials on Monday where he accepted that he had met bookies but couldn’t report it to the PCB as he was not in a position to disclose this fact in front of PCB.
Apart from Irfan, Sharjeel Khan and Khalid Latif were also suspended by PCB during PSL. Both of them had accepted breach of the disciplinary code of conduct but denied any sort of fixing. PCB had formed a three-member tribunal committee to investigate the charges on them.
