The Pakistan Cricket Board has filed an appeal seeking a life ban on Khalid Latif who had been handed a five year ban including one million rupees fine for spot fixing.
PCB’s legal advisor Tafazzul Rizvi said, “”We are not satisfied with the five-year ban and volume of fine. Our policy is clear that we have zero tolerance for players found guilty of corruption,” he said.
“We don’t want to see players who are found guilty on all counts under the anti-corruption code to play again. We want to make an example for others.”
The three member anti-corruption tribunal found both Khalid Latif and Sharjeel Khan guilty of spot fixing and other breaches of anti-corruption code.
Sharjeel has already fined an appeal against his ban but Latif is yet to deliver a word in this regard.
Way back in 2000, a single Pakistani cricketer, Salim Malik was imposed a life ban for match fixing.
