Pakistan bans bowler Irfan for one year – Emirates 24 quoting : emirates247

as informed in “I accept my mistake,” he told a press conference at the Pakistan Cricket Board’s headquarters in Lahore.
Pakistan have suspended fast bowler Mohammad Irfan for one year and fined him $10,000 after he admitted failing to report approaches by bookmakers linked to spot-fixing, cricket authorities said Wednesday.
Irfan made headlines for his extraordinary height – seven feet and one inch or 216 centimetres – when he made his international debut in 2010 and stands as the tallest-ever player to feature in world cricket.
The 34-year-old said he had not spoken out at the time because he was under mental stress following the death of his parents.
Azam added that Irfan could be eligible to return from his suspension six months early if he took part in lectures on the importance of anti-corruption laws.

as informed in Pakistan have suspended fast bowler Mohammad Irfan for one year and fined him $10,000 after he admitted failing to report approaches by bookmakers linked to spot-fixing, cricket authorities said Wednesday.
Mohammad Azam, head of the PCB’s anti-corruption unit, said the player’s admission meant he was not required to appear before a tribunal which is set to hear the cases of four other players linked to the scandal.
“I accept my mistake,” he told a press conference at the Pakistan Cricket Board’s headquarters in Lahore.
The 34-year-old said he had not spoken out at the time because he was under mental stress following the death of his parents.
