PCB has suspended fast bowler Muhammad Irfan after investigating him for spot-fixing allegations on him during PSL 2017.
Muhammad Irfan faced inquiry before PCB’s Anti-Corruption Unit for being in contact with bookies and not informing to authorities about it.
Upon inquiring why he didn’t tell to PCB, Muhammad Irfan told that he was depressed from the death of his parents who passed one after the other within one year, so he couldn’t inform to authorities about it.
PCB has given the bowler charge sheet and suspended him while instructing to file his reply within 14 days, reported Dawn.
PSL season 2017 was hit by spot-fixing scandal when it was found that Islamabad United players like Khalid Latif and Sharjeel Khan were involved in spot-fixing scandals. Both the players were barred from playing the tournament followed by an inquiry of the matter.
Muhammad Irfan who also faced accusations of being in contact with bookies was then cleared by the ACU for not paying attention to demands of match fixers. Now, when the PSL 2017 has concluded with a successful final at Gaddafi Stadium under stringent security measures, PCB has restarted the inquiry of this matter to launch a probe into corruption allegations on players with the help of FIA.
