Irfan suspended in spot-fixing case

Pakistan’s Cricket Board on Tuesday suspended and charged tall fast bowler Mohammad Irfan over his alleged involvement in spot-fixing during a recently held Twenty20 league.


“The Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) in furtherance to its investigation issued a Notice of Charge and provisionally suspended Irfan under the PCB Anti-Corruption Code,” it said in a statement.


It added: “Irfan has been charged with two violations of the anti-corruption code and now has 14 days to respond to the Notice of Charge,” without giving further details. “He has also been provisionally sus-pended with immediate effect from participating in all forms of cricket.”


Sharjeel Khan and Khalid Latif, also members of the Islamabad United team that took part in the PSL, were also provisionally suspended and charged last month over meeting a man suspected of being linked to an international betting syndicate.
