    [REPORT] PSL fixing scandal: Khalid Latif admits being offered Rs. 4 million

    KARACHI: Batsman Khalid Latif Monday admitted he was offered Rs. 4 million by a bookie during the recently concluded Pakistan Super League (PSL) season, ARY News reported.

    The Islamabad United player, during an investigation conducted by Federal Investigation Agency (FIA), said he was approached by the bookie in the team hotel in Dubai but he rejected the offer.

    However, according to ARY News sources, Khalid has been charged by the Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) for tempting fellow players to fix matches for the hefty amount —an offence, which can lead him to a five-year ban at least and a life-long ouster from the game at most.

    The widening scandal, which has so far ensnared four other current or former national stars, namely Shahzaib Hasan, Mohammad Irfan, Nasir Jamshed and Sharjeel Khan, has tainted the recently completed PSL, hailed as a step towards restoring international cricket in the country after the final in Lahore.

    A guilty verdict for the players would prove disastrous for Pakistan cricket, which was last rocked by a match-fixing scandal in 2010 that deprived it of three top players including paceman Mohammad Amir, who has since made a comeback.

    The scandal surfaced on February 10 when Khalid and fellow Islamabad United player Sharjeel were suspended and expelled from the PSL on charges of receiving offers from a suspicious man linked to an international betting syndicate.

    A third United player, Irfan, was also suspended on Tuesday for not reporting offers from bookmakers.

    While Nasir was also provisionally suspended on charges of being a “go between” in the spot-fixing incident. the left-handed opener and another unnamed person were arrested in Britain last month but were bailed until April.

    Interior Minister Chaudhry Nisar said Thursday the players could face jail terms.

    Ridiculous. No jail terms for looters who destroy millions of lives but jail terms for players who only affect a game of sport.

    Don't ask negative questions


    The looters are rich and powerful don't commit attack on democracy by asking for their arrest. Why do you hate democracy so much?

    didn't Amir / Asif / Butt serve jail time in the UK for something very similar?

    Match/spot fixing is an actual crime warranting jail time under British law.

    Techincally no, it isn't. You could go and decide to throw your wicket away tomorrow, and no one would care - its a game.

    What is illegal under UK law is attemting to defaud bookmakers, i.e. fix games
    with the intent to cheat bookmakers out of money. Match fixing, or spot fixing - no difference. So long as you are cheating the betting markets, its the same crime.

    Only people that care about whether a match was fixed and the result ruined as a result, are cricket fans.

    This act needs to be criminalised in Pakistan. Yes send them to jail. The bookies should also be sent to jail.

    Even if he did reject the offer why didn't he report it? $40,000 is hardly pocket change either.

    Crafting a full answer will depend on further questions.
