Cricketer Shahzaib Hasan was banned for a further four years with the fine of Rs: 1 million still obligatory on him for his part in spot-fixing during the 2017 season of the Pakistan Super League (PSL). The four-year ban contains the one year the cricketer has already served. Before that an anti-corruption tribunal had banned Shahzaib Hasan for one year and fined him Rs: 1 million which he had filed an appeal against.
Shahzaib Hasan, who represented Karachi Kings last year, was the 5th player to be suspended in the spot-fixing probe along with Islamabad United openers Khalid Latif and Sharjeel Khan and fast bowler Mohammad Irfan and all-rounder Mohammad Nawaz. The 27-year-old opener, who has represented Pakistan in three one-day internationals and 10 T20I matches, was suspended on March 17, 2017 and charged with three violations of the Pakistan Cricket Board’s (PCB) anti-corruption code.
The Pakistan Cricket Board’s anti-corruption unit had charged him for sacrilegious three clauses of its anti-corruption code for attracting cricketers into the scam, not reporting tactics by the bookies, and hiding information regarding his contacts with the bookies.
