LAHORE: Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) on Friday charged batsman Shahzaib Hasan in the Pakistan Super League (PSL) spot fixing scandal.
According to details, PCB has charged Hasan over violating three clauses including inciting players to fix matches, having contacts with bookies and not informing the cricket board that he was being given offers by match fixers.
Sources reported that during the investigation, Shahzaib has also accused Khalid Sharjeel and Irfan of being involved in the fixing racket.
The three players, who have already been suspended by PCB, had blamed Shahzaib for making contacts with bookies.
All the tainted players can also be jailed beside being suspended.
The Anti Corruption Unit (ACU) of Pakistan Cricket Board has instructed Hasan to submit a reply within 14 days.
PCB has decided to hand over the information — gathered during Hasan’s investigation — to Federal Investigation Agency (FIA).
Officials said that FIA and PCB are likely to constitute probe bodies over the scandal.
The cricket board is considering to summon other players for inquiry as well whereas it is being reported that the board is repeatedly contacting batsmen Nasir Jamshed regarding the spot fixing issue.
