Dubai: After Sharjeel Khan and Khalid Latif were sent home for an alleged involvement in spot-fixing during Pakistan Super League, three more cricketers – Mohammad Irfan (Islamabad United), left-arm spinner Zulfiqar Babar (Quetta Gladiators) and opening batsman Shazaib Hassan (Karachi Kings) - have been questioned by the Pakistan Cricket Board's anti-corruption unit for PSL.

They will continue to play for their respective franchise in the Twenty20 league in the United Arab Emirates, PSL chairman Najam Sethi said Saturday.

 

Sethi said efforts will continue "to protect the PSL from the menace of corruption."

On Friday, Islamabad United's batsmen Sharjeel Khan and Khalid Latif were provisionally suspended and ordered to return home.

After Sharjeel and Khalid’s suspensions, Pakistan Super League chairman Najam Sethi, in a media release, had said: "It would not be appropriate to comment on the specifics of the case, however this investigation is a clear demonstration of our determination to drive corruption out of our sport.

"We will not tolerate any form of corrupt activity and as this investigation proceeds we will not hesitate to take further decisive action as appropriate," he had added.
