    PCB needs to make an example of Sharjeel Khan and Khalid Latif to battle corruption

    Writing for FirstPost Sports, Saj Sadiq examines the manner in which the PCB has handled a tricky situation emanating from the corruption allegations against two Pakistan cricketers and suggests a way forward for the survival of the PSL.




    The year 2010 is etched in the memories of Pakistan cricketers as one that will always be associated with painful memories. The summer of that year saw three of Pakistan’s top cricketers banned due to involvement in a shameful spot-fixing scandal, which threatened the very existence of the game in the country. Apart from the almost irreparable loss to the country’s reputation, the long-term effects of this episode would always place Pakistan’s cricketers under extraordinary scrutiny.

    With the expiry of the five-year ban on all three cricketers and the return of Mohammad Amir to the international squad, there was a general feeling that Pakistan cricket had turned a new leaf and left behind a terrible saga. It was also widely understood that lessons learnt from this episode had been digested and adequate steps taken to ensure that future generations of Pakistani players would not veer off the prescribed path.

    It is in this context where the current spate of allegations against some promising cricketers involved in the ongoing edition of the Pakistan Super League (PSL) has been a tough pill to swallow for followers and administrators alike.

    For the followers of the game, that hollow feeling inside of deja vu that accompanied the revelations that Sharjeel Khan and Khalid Latif had been suspended and sent back home due to alleged involvement in corruption would have been like a nightmare come true — again. The pain of watching Sharjeel, who has shown so much promise since his hundred in the keenly contested final of the inaugural edition of the PSL, now facing a potentially career-threatening disruption would be a tough one to bear.

    The emergence of the PSL after years of false starts and deliberations was considered a fantastic achievement for an organisation like the Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB), who had hitherto been lambasted and ridiculed for its inability to move with the times. Whilst many other nations created their own brands of the vastly entertaining and lucrative Twenty20 Leagues, the Pakistan set-up struggled to make any headway in this direction. The inability to host international players and teams on home soil accompanied by the general inertia in the organisation meant that the birth of the PSL was always going to be a problematic process.

    All that changed in 2016 when the PCB stepped up to the plate and launched the PSL with success which surprised many naysayers and supporters alike. A total of five teams participated in hotly-contested games with Islamabad United under the leadership of Misbah-ul-Haq emerging as the unlikely winners.

    The PSL brand was thus accepted and widely recognised by fans and many international players and those interested in Pakistan cricket. The feeling that the PSL was possibly the best and most positive development in Pakistan’s recent cricket history was one that was shared by many.

    The feeling of euphoria and hope continued to the start of the next season of the PSL in 2017, with a bigger and better tournament planned and promised. The tournament kicking off with a spectacular opening ceremony, which left the nation breathless with anticipation of the fine quality of cricket to come in the next few weeks.

    However, the let-down at the start of the second tournament due to the allegations against the two Islamabad players, thus, were truly heart-wrenching for those who had put so much faith in the emergence of the PSL as a route through which promising future talents would emerge for a better future.

    For the PCB, the news of any corruption related activity is unwelcome but in a strange way, their involvement in this issue from the start of the crisis does show an organisation which is capable of performing its duties with a high degree of professionalism. The fact that it was the PCB who first announced the investigation and also acted in a decisive manner to take control of the situation does bode well for the future.

    Unlike the past, where there would have been an effort to brush the issue under the carpet, the PCB acted with confidence and stemmed the rot before media organisations took over and speculated. If that had been allowed, as in the case of the 2010 fiasco, then the results would have been significantly different with the future of the PSL brand under extreme distress.

    The handling of the current situation in such circumstances has been excellent but the PCB will have also realized that they are now faced with a no-win situation if and unless the focus of the tournament is firmly returned back onto the cricket itself. In this regard, the resumption of games and a business as usual attitude being displayed in the tournament is worth praising.

    There is no doubt that the monster of corruption seems to have raised its ugly head once again. This is something that no Pakistan fan or supporter would have wanted to hear again, but now that it has happened, it is down to the PCB and its management team to ensure that the matter is brought to a swift close. The PCB needs to come down hard on any offenders, make an example of them, nip this in the bud and handle the issue with the urgency and importance it requires.

    Some reports of the man they met just being a friend and not a bookie.

    Also saw Saj's tweet about Sharjeel's father being confident he did nothing wrong and will be cleared.

    No.

    None should be made scapegoat to set an example. There is a procedure of dealing with such cases & PCB should do exactly what is logical & just in line with ICC & their anti corruption judicial process. As long as PCB is not protecting a criminal, it's perfect.

    A player should not be used as scarecrow - others might take fun of it but the sufferings of that scarecrow is not justice served.

    The issue could be the strict rules of meeting anyone not on the list of people the PCB ASU are aware of and have approved of. Maybe the players must write down all names of friends and compatriots and must declare all names they are meeting in the UAE.

    Hopefully it's nothing major and a tournament ban is the outcome but it's speculation at best.

    I don't think punishment is a big deterrent for others. There is a capital punishment for murder, but still murders take place everyday.


    Sharjeel's own team mate in the Pakistan team, Amir, has had 5 years of his career taken away and is always under the scanner, yet it didn't prevent Sharjeel from being dumber than a wooden spoon.

    5 years of Amir's career was taken by ICC and not PCB and Sharjeel and everyone knew this. All they saw was, Amir got unlucky to get caught in another country, otherwise PCB always wanted his ban reduced and always made excuses for him. So to a Pak player, till now, it was only a problem if they got caught in another country and not in Pakistan

    Life bans on Butt, Asif, Amir, Sharjeel and Khalid. This would be the real justice.

    If PCB only give life bans to Sharjeel and Khalid while convicted fixer Amir continue to play then this would be mockery of justice.

    It will be a mockery of justice if Amir, Asif and Butt ARE given a life ban after they have complete their sentence. No justice system in the world has space for double punishment for the same offense. Educate yourself before mouthing off.

    their first sentence was wrong; they should have been banned for life. Now PCB needs to rectify the past mistakes by banning the trio for life. the life ban is the real punishment which is triggered after knowing the effects of their previous lenient punishment.

    PCB are famous for their idiotic claims and u-turns. Banned Akhtar, Yousaf, Younis etc for ''life'' a number of times. After 2010 accused England of match fixing and had to do a u-turn. But as an Indian you will ofcourse cheerlead our players being banned, I won't cheer or cry till the verdicts are out. You're talking about an extremely incompetent board, the daily contradicting statements from its two bosses should give yu an idea.

    Throw the book at them.

    For Sharjeel I'm appalled because these T20 leagues would make him more than enough money to live a lavish lifestyle and the way he was trending with Pakistan he would have received an A level contract.

    It disgusts me. The argument they don't make enough money which is why they do it is a poor one. In Pakistan, that kind of money is enough to live completely care free for yourself and your entire family. And even if it wasn't the case, then don't play cricket. You chose this profession, you know that it may lead to failure and little monetary gain. It's like any other field.

    If someone decides to become an actor, their families will tell them it's a very difficult field to make money in. At the top of course you are completely taken care of, but the saturation of the field and ignoring the top of the field and there are many struggling actors (or musicians for example) who knew going in that the chances to hit it big are slim to none.

    Ignore the cricketing aspect. If I work at my company and was offered money to say lose a case of tamper with evidence, then I would not only be fired, but legal action would be taken against me for white collar crime and be sent to jail.

    If three players cheating is not enough to deter them, then obviously the 5 year bans is not enough. A lifetime ban is the only choice (which if it is true (which it looks likely now)) to stop these actions.

    I'm for once happy with the actions of the PCB. I don't care for the politics behind it. If you cheated and people are airing it out, you have yourself to blame. Everyone does everything with some sort of personal gain but at the same time, PCB completely dropped the ball the first time, so taking an active and vigilant approach is something to be lauded. If PCB did nothing, they would be criticized, now that they are doing something and airing it out, they're also being criticized because of political reasoning behind it? There is no winning for them in the media and public so to me the best decision is to oust these cheaters.

    Continuously giving a black mark to our nation and its people. Fool me once, shame on you, fool me twice, shame on me. We cannot do this again and let them go. A strict no tolerance policy will send a long message for future.

    We need to teach the kids that selling your team or country down the drain can and will never pay. This goes way beyond cricket. Winning and losing matches is entertainment, teaching the right values to our people and youth and the corruption never pays is the right course of action. It's irrelevant if it's already prevalent in other areas in the nation, you have to start in certain areas, and it being where there is such a public spotlight of sport is a good avenue to start.

    A black mark again for our nation but hopefully this stomping of the foot will finally show that even the best will not be free. This time ICC should not step in and they should give the clap for us to taking the right step.

    Here is hoping.

    you know, im really hoping that corruption did happen.

    Because if it didn't, then PCB and PSL would be a laughing stock.

    That´s not a fair comparison. Life as a cricketer and the life outside it work differently. Within cricket itself for example, there´re enough examples to suggest that that a strict punishment could work as a deterrent for the future players, for players with a future in the team. Yes, Sreesanth will happen, as will Chandila, Latif, Gulam Bodi, but a Sharjeel could´ve been avoided if the PCB had paid less attention to the talent of Amir, and an Amir could´ve been avoided if Justice Qayyum´s report had been given some importance. Amir could´ve also been avoided if Asif´s earlier violations of discipline had been punished strictly.

    If you look around, has another Cronje happened in South Africa, or an Azharuddin in India? That is my point, that players with a future in the team would´ve thought twice before engaging in such activities. Fixing though won´t be terminated from cricket, it can´t be. Corruption is a part of life no matter which profession, but it can be fought against with a firm stance on it, not by glorifying those who´re caught doing it.

    I´m unaware of what exactly Sharjeel has engaged in, and whether it deserves a life ban or not, but the PCB shouldn´t overlook the benefits of a harsh punishment in the long run, the benefits it´ll have in avoiding another Sharjeel. Another Latif though cannot be avoided, fair enough.

    Also, before instances of supposed or even actual fixings are provided from other countries´ players, or how an X, Y or Z board too treated this or that player leniently despite being caught engaged in corruption, then let me just add that this is their shortcoming and they´ll be putting their own cricket at risk, not Pakistan´s. The PCB´s and Pakistan fans´ priority should be their own cricket, own cricketers. Pointing to instances from other boards makes the fans look like some apologists for fixers, or kind of finding excuses and justifications. Pakistan cricket has had three such scandals now, coupled with other non-fixing violations, and the PCB needs to make sure that they do their best to avoid losing more and more talented and skilled cricketers to corruption.

    I believe, a life ban on Amir could´ve prevented Sharjeel; I believe based on the examples given of Cronje and Azharuddin.

    I disagree with it though if Amir was to be punished now, be thrown out of the team and banned based on something that he hasn´t done now, or based on what other players have done now. Also, Sharjeel shouldn´t be treated like Amir by the PCB to be consistent in its practice, since in that way the cycle will keep on going on forever. The PCB needs to protect its game.

    The worst thing to do would be to make Latif the scapegoat, like they did in Ata-ur-Rehman´s case, who wasn´t only banned for life but was in fact banned from playing cricket even if he was born again.

    If some of the higher paid, higher profile players are doing this, what are the guys on peanuts going to be doing?

    It would be a huge problem if Pak domestic cricket was lucrative for bookies and gamblers but it's not. I think the problems occur when Pakistani players play international cricket, in leagues around the world and of course the PSL was always going to be a problem.

    I was thinking about the low paid PK players in the PSL.

    Also saw Saj's tweet about Sharjeel's father being confident he did nothing wrong and will be cleared.
    Of course his parents will say that.

    They should be banned for life if they are guilty of anything.
