Pakistan Cricketer Banned for 5 Years

Pakistan batsmen Sharjeel Khan has been banned for 5 years following a match fixing inquiry by the Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB)

Following a lengthy investigation into corruption in the Twenty20 Pakistan Super League, the PCB Tribunal served Mr Sharjeel with a 5 year ban. The last two and a half years of the ban will be suspended, in the meantime he will not be able to play domestic or international cricket, after which his return will be closely monitored.

Several other players have been questioned as part of the inquiry, since Britain's National Crime Agency provided the initial intelligence that led to the PCB investigation.
