PCB asks for 20 days to provide spot-fixing evidence to anti-corruption tribunal
Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) has sought 20 days from the anti-corruption tribunal to present evidences against Sharjeel Khan and other suspended players.
The case of PCB against suspended players is seemingly weak, sources claim.
PCB suspended five players including Muhammad Irfan, Sharjeel Khan, Khalid Latif, Shahzaib Hassan and Nasir Jamshed in the Pakistan Super League (PSL) spot-fixing scandal.
According to sources, the board could not provide the forensic report of players’ mobiles nor could they deliver the WhatsApp data.
Meanwhile, the statement of one player out of five is weak, even though the tribunal conducted stiff interrogation.
