Pakistani Cricketer Suspended on Corruption Charges

LAHORE: The Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) said that it had placed Khyber Pakhtunkhwa’s left-arm spinner Asif Afridi under provisional suspension.

The bowler has been suspended under Article 4.7.1 of the PCB Anti-Corruption Code, the board said in the statement released Tuesday.

The suspension means Afridi cannot take part in any cricket-related activity, pending the conclusion of the investigation being carried out by PCB’s Anti-Corruption Unit.

The PCB said that Afridi has today been issued a notice of charge for two breaches under Article 2.4 of the Code and has 14 days to respond to the charges.

“As this is an ongoing investigation, the PCB will not make any further comment pending the outcome of this case,” the board added.
