Sharjeel Khan Finally Confesses His Role in PSL Spot-Fixing Scandal

Banned Pakistani cricketer Sharjeel Khan has finally confessed his role in the spot-fixing scandal that rocked Pakistan Super League (PSL) in the second edition.

Sharjeel was given a five-year ban including a two-and-a-half year suspension from any form of cricket- which ends in August 2019.

As per reports, Sharjeel Khan, who has been persistently denying his role in the fixing scandal for almost two years, finally confessed his crime in a letter to PCB.

The Hyderabad-born opener has reportedly asked the board to review the ban imposed upon him.

What Happened in 2016?

Sharjeel accepted a considerable sum of money for playing two dot balls in a PSL 2017 game against Peshawar Zalmi.

The former PSL chairman claimed to have evidence even before the start of the particular game.

In a major crackdown against corruption, the board suspended Sharjeel Khan, Khalid Latif, Shahzaib Hassan and Nasir Jamshed.

The board had also suspended fast bowler Mohammad Irfan and left-arm spinner Mohammad Nawaz for six months for failing to report a corrupt approach.

Two first two were slapped with a ban from all forms of cricket for five years each for being the main culprits of the scandal, while Nasir Jamshed was handed a ten-year ban for introducing the players to the bookie.

The left-arm opening batsman had violated five articles of PCB code of conduct related to agreeing for a corrupt practice against a sum of money and for failing to report a fixing approach with the board.
