    "Players found to be involved in spot-fixing should be banned for life" : Misbah-ul-Haq

    Pakistan Test captain Misbah-ul-Haq has finally broken his silence on the spot-fixing scandal which hit the recently-concluded Pakistan Super League second edition.

    Talking to media earlier today, the veteran captain called for a life ban on players found guilty of spot-fixing.

    “Those players found to be involved in spot-fixing should be banned for life. We are very disappointed this happened,” Misbah said, adding that strict action must also be taken against former batsman Nasir Jamshed, who is under investigation for facilitating contact between the suspended players and bookies.

    The 42-year-old captain lamented that the fixing scandal has tarnished the image of Pakistan cricket.

    “It appears that the [positive] image for Pakistan cricket we had strived to build for the past seven years has been wasted,” Misbah said.

    About the upcoming tour to West Indies, the skipper said he anticipates the series to be tough, adding that the West Indies’ players know how to leverage their home conditions to their advantage.

    Cricketers Sharjeel Khan, Khalid Latif, Mohammad Irfan and Shahzaib Hasan have been provisionally suspended from all forms of cricket for violating the Pakistan Cricket Board's anti-corruption code. Sharjeel and Latif, who were suspended during the opening week of the PSL for suspected links with an international fixing syndicate, face a minimum five years’ ban.

    Federal Investigation Agency (FIA) has sent notices to cricketers Sharjeel Khan, Nasir Jamshed, Khalid Latif and Muhammad Irfan for their role in spot fixing during Pakistan Super League 2017.

    Batsman Shahzaib, who was charged and suspended on Friday, also faces a minimum five years' ban. Fast bowler Mohammad Irfan faces a minimum six months' ban.

    Nasir Jamshed, who resides in the UK, was suspended during PSL after the PCB said it had 'concrete evidence' against the former opener. He was also arrested along with another suspect by Britain's National Crime Agency last month as part of investigations but later released on bail, according to reports.

    Misbah was against Amir inclusion but due to PCB hard stance he remain silent. This statement is actually against PCB.

    Yeah, alll cleared and allowed to play by the ICC, not life-banned, and ready for selection.

    When someone is selected, they become your team, you back them - it doesn't require Einstein logic.

    If you ban them for life, they won't get selected.


    At the end of a stressful, depressing day, a dose of cricket is what can cheer us up.

    with Pakistan cricket, its always post event commentary.
    There is a well established wisdom that if you don't nip things in the bud, they come back to haunt you. some of it is backed even by scientific studies (eg Pavlovian conditioning etc). Yet, we make ourselves believe every time "this is the last time I am going to ignore this".....but every time it has come back to haunt Pakistan cricket.
    So while I applaud every ex player/current player asking for life bans, the question must always be: what was your view on Aamir's return to cricket.

    People will keep peddling this nonsense that so and so player served his time so he should get to play. It doesn't work like that....once you lose credibility or endanger the credibility of your organization, it should be over for you. If you dont want to ban then, fine don't, but at least dont select them.

    Why ban for life for domestic cricket.

    Seems unfair after the saintly golden trio who are untouchable and whose return had no impact whatsoever on Sharjeel and co thinking it was worth the risk.

    Dear Misbah, talk is cheap, if you're sincere about and care about Pakistan cricket ( which I'm sure you do ) then please first retire and then talk. Or, tell me one benefit to Pakistan cricket with you sticking with team other than looking for some cheap runs after your failure as captain and player against better teams.

    But why?

    Life ban or not - it would not have prevented Sharjeel, Khalid etc. from committing their crimes recently.

    The only way prevent spot/match fixing is to charge the perpetrators for treason and put them in jail for life

    Gotta feel for Misbah, all his hardwork in building Pakistan's image post 2010 dumped down the drain by greedy players.





    That being said Misbah hasn't covered himself in glory in recent weeks by clinging onto the captaincy when it is clearly his time to go.

    Misbah is right. We should show no mercy on fixers in the future. Hopefully there are none but if there are they should be banned for life.

    I wasn't against Amir returning but looking back on it he should have been banned for life. I think if our players know they will be banned for life they will think twice before committing such acts.

    Life ban is a bigger deterrent than a ban for X number of years. Even if it reduces the chances of players fixing by 1%, it is worth it. Jail or not, bringing back fixers after their ban is over is not justifiable.

    Yes, I don't know what had gotten into me. Wasn't thinking straight, perhaps allowed myself to get influenced by people on this forum because around 2011-2012, I was adamant that they should not be allowed back. However, around 2013-2014, I changed my mind.

    I disagree with life bans. Mistakes are made by every human-being and if they serve their punishment and vow to never make the same mistake, then as a morally upright human-being you have to forgive them.

    Seems like the logic at the moment is life bans for some, but not if you are a promising young fast bowler who claimed he was misled.

    It's quite risky just to ban a player for life while basing that ban just off setting a precedent. You can't be sure that the percentage of fixing will come down due to life bans.

    Salim Malik and Ata ur Rehman were banned for life - did they reduce the chance of fixing by "1%".

    The trio fixed and so did Sharjeel, Latif.

    Life bans don't do anything and the only solution is to charge the fixers on accounts of treason and jail them for life - even then some jaahils will still try to take their chances.

    My friends its quite simple. Misbah, with his selfish act, not thinking about future of Pakistan cricket, should be the last person to talk about what is good and whats bad for Pakistan cricket . Unless you want to share with me any secret benefit Pakistan cricket going to achieve with his going to West Indies.

    Saleem Malik was on the brink of retirement and Ata-ur-Rehman was a nobody. Not the best examples. The wrong precedence was set in 2000 when Wasim Akram was pardoned purely down to his status. Yes he too was at the end of his career, but he is one of the biggest superstars the game - let alone Pakistan - has ever produced, and banning him for life would have sent a serious message. The same mistake was made 10 years later, when three key players were not punished by the PCB. Instead, especially in golden boy Amir's case, they continued to plead with the ICC to reduce his punishment and allow him to resume his cricket. What message did it send? If you are talented enough, you will be allowed to continue your career after fulfilling your punishment.

    Adopting a zero-tolerance policy is the only way forward. I don't buy the argument that it is not a bigger deterrent than a temporary ban and that it will not discourage the future players from engaging in such activities. The magnitude of the deterrence is actually irrelevant, because the important thing is that it sends a serious message - you get involved in match-fixing, your international career is over. No exceptions. It doesn't matter how old you are or how good you are, you will not be allowed to represent Pakistan again or play cricket at any professional level. Are you telling me that this is not a bigger deterrent than getting banned for X number of years and then resuming your career?

    To be honest its the honest players who suffer the most because now whenever they, like every other team, stuff up everyone goes wink wink nudge nudge this guy fixed.

    Even players with 10+ year careers have tarnished reputations.

    I do not want to sound like a broken record but you can't punish someone twice for the same crime.

    The trio made a mistake and they served their time. It was PCB's mistake to not ban them for life.

    There should have been a zero tolerance policy from day 1.
