PSL spot-fixing case: Khalid Latif banned and fined

The batsman Khalid Latif has been imposed with a five-year ban by the  Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) for his connection with the spot-fixing scandal. Along with a ban, he also has to give a fine of one million Pakistan Rupees (USD 9,489 approximately).

Pakistan Cricket Board declared this news by tweeting on Twitter. "Anti-Corruption Tribunal has found Khalid Latif guiltily of all charges, therefore has announced a ban of 5 years & a fine of PKR 1 Million," the PCB tweeted.

Latif was charged with six major breaches of the PCB's Anti-Corruption Code, including attempting to spot-fix, accepting an offer by a bookmaker which he did not report on time, and luring other players to take part in fixing.

A three-member tribunal on March 6 was formed by the PCB to investigate the spot-fixing case allegedly involving Sharjeel Khan and Khalid Latif.

Four other players--Mohammad Irfan, Nasir Jamshed, Shahzaib Hasan and Mohammad Nawaz-- are also under investigation by the PCB tribunal and have also been suspended.
