Probe into PSL fixing scandal widened; Muhammad Irfan sent home

DUBAI: The fixing scandal has rocked the second edition of Pakistan Super League (PSL, as another player of Islamabad United was sent home on Saturday by Anti-Corruption Unit (ACU) of Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB).

As per detail, the lanky fast bowler was sent home on charges of having meetings with suspected people.

The PBC has already suspended two players of the Islamabad United — Sharjeel Khan and Khalid Latif — under its Anti-Corruption Code as part of an ongoing investigation into an international syndicate which is believed to be attempting to corrupt the Pakistan Super League (PSL) which is being played in Dubai.

“Sharjeel Khan and Khalid Latif have been suspended and the rigorous and wide-ranging investigation by the PCB supported by the ICC will continue as part of collective efforts to protect the integrity of the sport,” read a statement issued by the PCB on Friday.
