PCB To Grill Mohammad Irfan, Shahzaib Hasan In PSL Spot-Fixing Scandal Case
In a latest development, the Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB), on Friday, issued a notice to fast- bowler Mohammad Irfan and batsman Shahzaib Hasan to investigate further on the fixing scandal which surfaced during the Pakistan Super League.
Sportzwiki has learnt the PCB Media Director Amjad Hussain has confirmed about the notice issued to both cricketers.
“As soon as our Anti-Corruption Wing got to know about the entire episode, it took action,” PCB Chairman Shaharyar Khan was quoted as saying by thenews.com.pk.
Reports further suggested PCB’s ACU has summoned both players on Monday-Tuesday next week related to fixing scandal in which two Pakistan international cricketers Sharjeel Khan and Khalid Latif were provisionally suspended, after the reports surfaced of the United players’ meeting with an international syndicate, who were looking to corrupt PSL games in the United Arab Emirates.
“Everything is in our hands. We will decide the case and we will hand out the punishments,” Shaharyar concluded.
The 34-year-old Irfan, who plays for the PSL franchise Islamabad United, was cleared by the Anti-Corruption Unit alongside Karachi Kings recruit Shahzaib Hasan and Zulfiqar Babar (Quetta Gladiators), after they were grilled over the spot-fixing saga during the second edition of the cash-rich league.
The 25-year-old Shahzaib has played 10 Twenty20 Internationals and three One-Day Internationals since making his international debut in 2009.
On the other hand, Mohammad Irfan has featured in 60 ODIs, 20 T20Is and four Tests for Pakistan. He has bagged 108 wickets across all three formats since making his debut in 2010.
