LAHORE: Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) on Monday formed a three-member tribunal, headed by a retired judge in order to investigate the spot-fixing case of Pakistan Super League (PSL) involving the Islamabad United duo, Sharjeel Khan and Khalid Latif.

PCB Chairman Shahyar Khan said former Lahore High Court judge Asghar Haider would head the inquiry: “A three-member tribunal has been formed under Justice Haider and its member will be Tauqir Zia and Wasim Bari.”

Tauqir Zia is ex-military general who headed the board during 1999-2003 while Wasim Bari is fromer Pakistani skipper and team manager.

The suspicious pair (Sahrjeel and Khalid) were provisionally suspended earlier after the first match of PSL, on the allegation apropos violating the board’s anti-corruption code but both denied the charges.

Sharjeel Khan was expected to have a bright future as fast-rising opener for Pakistan. He has played 1 Test, 25 One Day Internationals and 15 Twenty20 for international team so far.

Khalid was part of Pakistan’s team in last year Twenty20 World Cup (India). He also performs well with bat as an opener with ability to collect quick runs. 5 One Day International and 15 twenty20 games compiled his career.

If these players are found guilty of the offence (i.e.: :meeting a doubtful man who is allegedly linked to international betting syndicate they will face life time ban.
