LAHORE – Pakistani fast bowler Mohammad Irfan will appear before the Pakistan Cricket Board’s Anti-Corruption Unit (ACU) today as part of the PSL spot-fixing investigation.
After recording Irfan’s statement today regarding alleged corruption in Pakistan Super League season 2, PCB will interrogate batsman Shahzaib Hasan tomorrow (Tuesday).
Islamabad United’s Mohammad Irfan and Karachi Kings’ Shahzaib Hasan also faced a barrage of questions by the PCB during the tournament in Dubai last month but they were allowed to remain part of their respective teams.
The PSL corruption probe followed reports that Islamabad United duo Sharjeel Khan and Khalid Latif were allegedly involved in spot-fixing.
Both the players were immediately suspended and were sent home putting the credibility of the glamorous cricket league in question.
Nasir Jamshed, who has been accused of referring Islamabad duo Sharjeel Khan and Khalid Latif to alleged bookie Yousuf, has been provisionally suspended from all forms of cricket by the Pakistan Cricket Board. This was confirmed by PSL chairman Najam Sethi as well.
