Pakistan’s national player Khalid Latif who’s been suspended from PSL and the PCB’s central contract, denied all allegations leveled against him for spot fixing and says he is innocent.
PCB had suspended Islamabad United’s Khalid Latif and Sharjeel Khan for breaking the anti-corruption code and barred them from participating in the ongoing PSL event till the inquiry is completed.
PCB said they are taking strict measures to keep PSL clean from any sort of corruption and to help maintain the integrity of cricket as a game. Whereas, ICC is also extending its full cooperation to the Board.
Khalid Latif, who was surrounded by the media and faced some tough questions regarding his involvement in the scandal, claimed he was innocent and said, “God is my witness, I haven’t done anything wrong.”
It should also be noted that former cricketers and experts have already demanded that players involved in spot fixing should face severe punishment.
Recently while speaking to the media PCB chairman Shahryar Khan also said that players involved in match fixing would be taken to task very seriously and could face life time ban from cricket.
He said in case of Muhammad Amir who was involved in match fixing earlier was allowed to play international cricket following the rules and regulations of international cricket council, but this time whoever is caught will face severe punishment.
