The Pakistan Cricket Board provisionally suspended Sharjeel Khan and Khalid Latif under its anti-corruption code on Friday and dumped the pair out of the Pakistan Super League, just one day after the Twenty20 event started.”Sharjeel and Latif have been suspended and the rigorous and wide-ranging investigation by the PCB supported by the International Cricket Council will continue as part of collective efforts to protect the integrity of the sport,” the board said in a statement.No further details were released but the pair were thought to be linked to spot-fixing, an illegal betting practice rife in Pakistan cricket in recent years.

The PSL said that the investigation centred on “an international syndicate which is believed to be attempting to corrupt the PSL”.
