PSL spot-fixing: Sharjeel Khan handed 5-year ban

He will not be able to play domestic or global cricket for the next two and a half years, after which his return will be closely monitored, the tribunal said.

The decision relates to "agreeing to fix" the Pakistan Super League match played between Islamabad United and Peshawar Zalmi in Dubai earlier this year.

Sharjeel and fellow Islamabad United player Khalid Latif were provisionally suspended and sent home from the domestic Twenty20 competition in February after an investigation by the board's anti-corruption unit. He was found guilty of all five breaches by Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) tribunal.

His lawyer Shaighan Ejaz told a media conference hours after the tribunal released its short order announcing the ban that Sharjeel would mull over appealing against the decision.

The refineries affected represent over 17 percent of the USA gas production, around 3 million barrels a day, according to Tribune. Gas prices jumped throughout the nation and in Wyandotte County following Hurricane Harvey's damage to oil refining in Texas.

Sharjeel, who has played in one Test, 25 ODIs and 25 T20I matches, was hailed as a "Warner" for Pakistan by former head coach, Waqar Younis who said he was very disappointed after learning about Sharjeel's PSL fixing issue. As we understand, those three serious charges have not been proven.

"The tribunal accepted all five charges against Sharjeel but gave him the minimum possible punishment". The panel began hearing against Khalid Latif, Mohammad Irfan, Nasir Jamshed, Shahzaib Hasan and Sharjeel Khan.

Mohammad Irfan and Mohammad Nawaz, who were also accused, have already received their punishments and have been suspended for failing to report offers to fix. Pakistan's Mohammad Nawaz was also handed ban for one month and fined him approximately U.S. $2,000 after he admitted failing to disclose an approach by a bookmaker to engage in corrupt practices.

PCB lawyer Tafazzul Rizvi said: "The suspended sentence isn't defined as yet in the PCB anti-corruption code as there is a limited provision".
