    Final decision on the Sharjeel Khan and Khalid Latif spot-fixing cases expected 'soon'

    LAHORE: Batsman Khalid Latif on Wednesday filed an intra-court appeal in the Lahore High Court (LHC) challenging dismissal of his writ petition by a single bench and the proceedings of Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) anti-corruption tribunal on spot-fixing charges against him.

    Khalid filed the petition through Advocate Zubair Khalid pleading that the PCB’s anti-corruption tribunal had no jurisdiction to investigate the spot-fixing charges.

    He said the tribunal constituted under the PCB anti-corruption code was illegal as the code had not been gazetted in the Pakistan gazette. Criticising powers of PCB chairman to constitute the tribunal, he said a LHC single bench dismissed his petition on the matter ignoring facts of the case.

    The petitioner asked the court to set aside decision of the single bench and the proceedings against him pending before the PCB anti-corruption tribunal. A division bench headed by Justice Shahid Karim would take up the intra-court appeal on Thursday.

    Khalid and four other players had been charged for breaching the PCB’s anti-corruption code during the this year’s Pakistan Super League (PSL) held in the UAE.

    LHC rejects Latif’s appeal against PCB tribunal powers

    Lahore - The Lahore High Court (LHC) Thursday rejected suspended cricketer Khalid Latif’s appeal challenging the powers of the Pakistan Cricket Board’s Anti-Corruption Tribunal in the PSL spot-fixing case.

    The court, during hearing of the case today, demanded response from the federal government and the PCB on June 13 regarding the matter. The court had earlier accepted Latif’s application challenging dismissal of his petition against proceedings of the PCB’s Anti-Corruption Tribunal in the spot-fixing case.

    Latif had filed an intra-court appeal on Wednesday challenging an order of the LHC single bench which had dismissed his petition against the PCB Anti-Corruption Code and tribunal proceedings regarding PSL corruption allegations against him. In his appeal, the batsman had said that the PCB’s Anti-Corruption Code had status of law and it was mandatory to notify the same in a gazette of Pakistan. Since it was not notified in the gazette, it was illegal and without any force, the appeal had contended.

    The application had further claimed that the PCB chairman did not have any powers to form a tribunal, and requested the court to set aside the LHC single-bench order and suspend the tribunal proceedings till the final decision of the appeal. Latif has been charged for breaching Articles 2.1.1, 2.1.2, 2.1.3, 2.1.4, 2.4.4 and 2.4.5 of the PCB’s Anti-Corruption Code.

    He faces five charges on counts relating to fixing and failure to report it, and another charge of attempting to lure other players to fixing. The tribunal, set up to hear the alleged corruption charges against the players, is headed by retired Justice Asghar Haider and comprises former PCB chairman retired Lt Gen Tauqir Zia and former Test captain Wasim Bari.

    Meanwhile, the PCB tribunal is set to conduct another hearing of the spot-fixing case against suspended batsman Shahzaib Hasan today. Shahzaib has been charged with violations of articles 2.1.4 (directly or indirectly facilitating with corrupt activities), 2.4.4 (failing to disclose to the PCB full details of any approaches to engage in Corrupt Conduct), and 2.4.5.

    PCB trying to ruin career of Khalid Latif: lawyer

    Suspended cricketer Khalid Latif’s lawyer, Badar Alam, on Friday levelled allegations on the Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) that they are trying to ruin the career of his client by trying to call him again and again for the tribunal meeting.

    Latif was suspended by the PCB from all forms of international and domestic cricket following his alleged involvement in match-fixing during the recently-concluded Pakistan Super League (PSL).

    “The PCB are trying to ruin the career of my client. They only want to pressurise him into coming up with an agreement with the board,” he said.

    Alam further said that Latif’s case is being heard by the Lahore High Court and that the PCB has no right to call him for the tribunal meeting, calling it unlawful.

    “The PCB has no proof of Latif’s involvement in match-fixing. The only thing that they have is a video message in which my client has accepted that he did meet the bookie. They do not have any proof that he was involved in fixing,” he said.

    Alam also stated that is the PCB insists on calling Latif to the tribunal again and again, then it will be deemed as harassment.

    Pakistan cricketer Khalid Latif 'given bat grips by bookie' to indicate fix

    The Pakistan Cricket Board on Friday said it had seized bat grips given to Khalid Latif by a bookmaker which the Islamabad United opener was allegedly supposed to use to indicate he would participate in a spot-fix.

    The 31-year-old batsman stands accused of attempting to spot-fix, accepting an offer by a bookmaker which he did not report, and luring other players into the conspiracy.

    His case is currently being heard by a three-member tribunal convened to adjudicate on the scandal which emerged during the Pakistan Super League (PSL) in the United Arab Emirates in February and March.

    Fast bowler Mohammad Irfan and spinner Mohammad Nawaz have already been banned for six months with six suspended, and one month with one suspended, respectively and fined after they confessed to failing to report meetings with bookmakers.

    Khalid and three other players -- Sharjeel Khan, Shahzaib Hasan and Nasir Jamshed -- are also provisionally suspended on various charges and face bans ranging from five years to life if found guilty.

    "One (piece) of ... evidence is that we seized the bat grips that (a) bookie had given and they were seized from Khalid's kit bag," PCB lawyer Taffazul Rizvi told reporters.

    Spot-fixing involves attempting to determine the outcome of a specific part of a match rather than the overall result, and is therefore harder to detect than match-fixing.

    Khalid did not feature in Islamabad United's opening game of the league, against Peshawar Zalmi in Dubai on February 9 but is said to have passed on the grip to Sharjeel Khan.

    Sharjeel is alleged to have played two dot balls -- balls from which a batsman does not score -- according to a pre-determined plan.

    Rizvi added that Khalid had met the bookmaker twice but failed to report the meeting.

    On Thursday the head of International Cricket Council's Anti-Corruption and Safety Unit Sir Ronnie Flanagan told the tribunal that Britain's National Crime Agency had provided the initial tip-off about fixing attempts in the PSL.

    Khalid's lawyer Badar Alam meanwhile contested the neutrality of the tribunal on the grounds that one of its members was a former PCB chairman.

    Former Pakistan opener Khalid Latif on Saturday boycotted the proceedings of a spot fixing hearing after after a tribunal refused to give him a copy of his recorded interview.

    The 31-year-old batsman stands accused of attempting to spot-fix, accepting an offer by a bookmaker which he did not report, and luring other players into the conspiracy.

    His case is currently being heard by a three-member tribunal convened to adjudicate on the scandal which emerged during the Pakistan Super League (PSL) in the United Arab Emirates in February and March.

    Latif's lawyer Badre Alam said he had rejected the tribunal because it refused to give his client a copy of his interview, recorded by the Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) anti-corruption tribunal in February.

    "We have asked for the recording of Khalid's interview which is our right but the tribunal has rejected it," Alam told reporters.

    "Until that (interview is given) we will not continue the proceedings, we told them we are not running away but we are talking in legal terms."

    PCB lawyer Taffazul Rizvi said tribunal could proceed even without Latif's presence.

    "If a player or participant is not appearing before tribunal, from the start or from the middle, then the tribunal has complete right to listen the remaining case as per the law and give the decision," said Rizvi.

    The PCB said the video interview was conducted by its anti-corruption unit on February 19 and contains a confessional statement from Latif.

    The main charges for Latif are luring other players to participate in the fixing and not reporting the offers.

    Fast bowler Mohammad Irfan was banned for six months and spinner Mohammad Nawaz for one month and both were fined after they confessed to failing to report meetings with bookmakers.

    Latif and three other players -- Sharjeel Khan, Shahzaib Hasan and Nasir Jamshed -- are also provisionally suspended on various charges and face bans ranging from five years to life if found guilty.

    The Pakistan Cricket Board on Friday said it had seized bat grips given to Latif by a bookmaker which the Islamabad United opener was allegedly supposed to use to indicate he would participate in a spot-fix.

    Sethi Sahab and co are have landed themselves in quite a bit of hot water after giving claims of 'irrevocable' evidence on their allegations of players...

    The public will turn on them the longer the case goes without evidences... the PCB are already called a dummy of the government which has lost alot of popularity vote recently...

    Latif and Sharjeel will fight this till the end and will probably give the PCB alot of bad name the longer the case continues

    Latif offered to help bookie's arrest, claims lawyer

    SHARJAH - Khalid Latif's lawyer has claimed that his client had offered to help the so-called bookie, who was involved the spot-fixing controversy in the Pakistan Super League (PSL) matches, gets arrested but his appeal was ignored by the Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB).

    In an exclusive chat with the reporter from Pakistan, where he attended the two-day hearings with his client Latif, where they boycotted the part of the second day's hearing though, lawyer Badar Alam said: “The PCB was not interested in going into the bottom of this scandal but wanted the players to be the scapegoats. Latif had even offered the PCB officials to allow him to call the bookie, get the police alerted and ensure that the bookie is alerted. The PCB should have been happier with this offer but they never acted.

    "My client never went to bookie (Yousuf) of his own but he was repeatedly asked by Nasir Jamshed to go and meet his "friend". Nasir had even said to him that his image would be spoiled if he does not go and meet him,” he added.

    Badar lawyer said: "The PCB is lying and saying that in a video recording, Khalid Latif has accepted the charges. My client has never said so. We have been constantly requesting them to hand over the tape where he has said so, but the PCB is constantly denying saying it is a confidential tape and cannot hand over. How can we prove our innocence, if my client is denied the access of the evidence?

    "Before the spot-fixing scandal broke, the PCB was said to be alerted by United Kingdom’s National Crime Agency (NCA). Then why didn’t the PCB officials also caution the players. If they failed in this, they should also be equally responsible,” the lawyer added.

    He said that the PCB lawyer was claiming that the bat grips were found on Latif’s bats. “This is untrue. The grips were in his kit bag (not on bats) and the same information was furnished to the PCB by Latif himself.”

    "Yousuf had dropped me at a hotel in the late night of February 9, after my refusal to accept his offer. He put the different colours of bat-grips in my bag and had said they are of not use to him,” Latif had informed to the PCB in a letter, a copy of which is in the possession of this Reporter. "My honesty and clear conscious is evident, but you have improperly converted the same into charges against me by distorting the facts instead of appreciating my fair conduct,” Latif's reply has said. "The PCB is only acting on presumptions in this case and that's why we are objecting to it,” the lawyer signed off.

    Suspended opening batsman Khalid Latif’s lawyer slammed Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB)’s Anti-Corruption tribunal for their biased attitude.

    PCB’s legal advisor Taffazzul Rizvi claimed earlier that Khalid’s lawyers are trying to find an escape route, and also said that the tribunal has the authority to proceed even if the other party refuses to appear in the trial.

    Badar Alam in a video statement released on Monday, claimed that the tribunal members had affiliation with the board in the past, which is why he and his client do not believe they can get any justice from the hearing.

    “We don’t believe we can get any justice from this tribunal,” said Badar. “Trial without our participation proves our reservations. How can you expect to have a fair trial when all the member of the tribunal served the cricket board in some capacity in the past?”

    Badar further went on to demand the release of the trial video. “We demand them to release the video of the trial,” Badar added. “They [the PCB] claim that they cannot release the video because it is their private matter, which proves that they’ve already made up their mind to punish the player.”

    Khalid is among the five players suspended for the spot-fixing scandal which rocked the second edition of the Pakistan Super League (PSL).

    Sharjeel Khan has already earned respectable enough money to survive quite well in Pakistan plus he is 5 years younger than Khalid Latif so He is keeping quiet and co-operating with Tribunal.


    Sharjeel knows that given the type of Explosive batsman He is, even if he gets banned for say 5 or even 7 years still He can play 5 to 7 years of T20 leagues and if he is fit enough than can make comeback to Pakistan Team even at that age. Still He can earn so much money from T20 Leagues before He turns 40.


    So sensible move from Sharjeel Khan while Khalid knows his limitations.


    Sharjeel will only hit SHC or SC if he is slapped life ban which is highly unlikely. Even if Sharjeel is punished with Life Ban SHC or SC will over turn it because of the recent examples of Amir, Asif & Salman.


    So for Sharjeel its " thanda mahol " for Khalid his financial, professional Career is on the Line.

    Why didn't the prosecution share the supposed audio of Latif admitting his guilt with the defence lawyer?

    Bat given by bookie (which wasn't even used in the match since Latif wasn't selected for that game) seems rather weak evidence to hang someone

    The more you look at it, the more it seems PCB does have evidence of Latif/Sharjeel meeting bookies which they didn't report (5 years) but not much evidence of actual fixing. If so, they have done a shoddy job and/or probably jumped the gun before nailing the duo properly.

    Either way, PCBs incompetence, despite some posters rating Najam/Shahryar highly, is on display again - both from on-field performance to off field decisions.

    Islamabad United coach Dean Jones on Wednesday testified at a tribunal hearing spot-fixing charges against Sharjeel Khan, saying two dot balls played by the batsman during a Pakistan Super League match were not suspicious from a cricketing perspective.

    The allegation relates to a match played between Islamabad United and Peshawar Zalmi held in Dubai in February, in which Sharjeel scored a single off four deliveries including two dots (balls which result in no runs). The Pakistan Cricket Board has accused him of agreeing to a spot-fixing plan and of failing to report offers to fix, charges which carry a ban ranging from five years to life if found guilty.

    Sharjeel’s lawyer Shaigan Aijaz, who is representing him at a closed-door tribunal, said: “Jones has told the tribunal that Sharjeel played dot balls on merit and that he has no reservations about Sharjeel’s shot selection.”

    The first of the two balls in question was punched to cover point, while the second was driven to mid-off. A second lawyer familiar with the proceedings confirmed Jones’ testimony, which took place via Skype, adding that the former Australia star told the tribunal Sharjeel was naturally weaker on his offside and less likely to score in that zone. Spot-fixing involves attempting to determine the outcome of a specific part of a match rather than the overall result, and is therefore harder to detect than match-fixing.

    Bowlers Mohammad Irfan and Mohammad Nawaz, who also featured in the second edition of the Twenty20 tournament have so far been suspended for failing to report offers to fix. The fate of batsmen Khalid Latif, Nasir Jamshed and Shahzaib Hasan has yet to be decided. Taffazul Rizvi, a lawyer for the PCB, added that Jones said he could not speak to whether any of his players had been approached by bookmakers.

    “He said that he would be upset if he knows that his players were involved and that players are briefed about fixing through lectures,” he said.

    Don't think the PCB ever had any real intention to prosecute Sharjeel, they were just trying to legally camoflage the whole thing to look good to the ICC and Anti Corruption unit where the ICC will feel that the PCB tried hard to prosecute the players but due to lack of sufficient evidence, they were unable to do so and there Sharjeel gets to play for Pakistan again.

    Latif wants PM to take action against PCB

    Suspended opener in Pakistan Super League (PSL) spot-fixing scam Khalid Latif has written a letter to Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif, stating his reservations over Disciplinary Committee.

    The case is becoming difficult for the Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) after the refusal of Sharjeel Khan and Khalid Latif to be witnesses in the case.

    The right-handed opener has raised questions over the investigation of Disciplinary Committee and sent a copy of the letter, forward to the PCB, to the premier.

    The cricketer’s lawyer Badar Alam said that his client received notice of hearing from the board with delay.

    On the other hand, PCB legal advisor said that the board will announce unilateral decision if Khalid Latif would not appear before the tribunal on June 29.

    LAHORE: Pakistan suspended batsman Khalid Latif appeared before retired judge Justice Fazal-e-Miran Chohan here on Thursday to argue that a Pakistan Cricket Board’s (PCB) tribunal hearing the Pakistan Super League (PSL) corruption case cannot be impartial. Latif is facing six major corruption charges, but he boycotted proceedings and instead filed a separate motion questioning the fitness of the three-member panel led by Justice (retired) Syed Asghar Haider. Latif and his lawyer Badar Alam said that Haider (a former PCB legal advisor), Tauqir Zia (former PCB chairman) and Wasim Bari (former PCB official) had all been on the payroll of the Pakistan Cricket Board at some time and hence cannot be impartial. Chohan is appointed head of the PCB disciplinary tribunal to hear objections of Latif over eligibility of PCB anti-corruption tribunal’s head Asghar Haider.

    Chohan heard Latif’s concerns, and the rebuttal from the PCB, and reserved his judgment. He is expected to announce it over the next two days. Alam, after presenting his argument, briefed the media, saying the PCB could not nominate tribunal members with whom the board has had previous relations. He cited various instances in Pakistan’s legal history where judges had decided against hearing cases in which they were perceived to have conflicts of interest. For example, the high-profile Panama Papers investigation in Pakistan, which is probing potential financial irregularities that could implicate the country’s Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif.

    Alam said the Chief Justice of Pakistan, Justice Saqib Nisar, had recused himself from the case because he had been the Secretary of Law when Sharif was Prime Minister in 1997. The PCB however, rebutted that there was no such provision written in the code. “The only provision mentioned in the code is that members should not have any association with the case and none of the three members has any direct or indirect association with the case,” Tafulzul Rizvi, PCB’s legal advisor said.

    Now that we have found Fakhar Zaman, wouldn't be that upset if they are found guilty. I want them to be innocent but also, if they have fixed and get away with it, it may good news for Pakistan cricket if they are back but bad news for keeping corruption out of the game in the long term. We don't need Latif that much, he's getting old now anyway, unfit and if one of him or Sharjeel was to be guilty ideally it would be Latif

    If Sharjeel Khan is actually guilty and PCB fails to prove that, then it will be very harmful for the future of Pakistan cricket. More than more player will be encouraged to do fixing.

    If Sharjeel Khan is actually innocent and PCB fail to prove him guilty, it will also hurt Pakistan cricket as many people will do fixing thinking PCB's inability to win fixing cases.

    First bit I agree with, not second.

    How can someone being innocent be wrong? It would simply mean a person wasn't guilty and the accuser therefore could not prove him guilty. You cannot win big cases if the other party is innocent.

    you worded in the wrong way

    if they are innocent and PCB loses the case, it only proves incompetence of PCB to innitiate some case in which it had not enough evidences and tried to mess with career of innocent players.

    SK last played any competitive/official match in FEB & earliest next match (International or domestic) is not before SEP, which is almost 9 months.

    What I believe will be done is handing him 6-9 months ban & 5-10 years suspended ban + hefty fine & may be a demotion in central contract, which 'll allow him to come back in SRL series, but should keep him in tight lash for rest of his career; on top that a good portion of his earnings taken for PCB's office expense bills.

    Personally, I believe he isn't clean - did enough to get 2 years ban, but I won't ever penalize any player for anything in a T20 league.

    definitely seems dodgy both the cases, along with Nasir Jamshed... should be proven guilty if so and should hand them from a min ban of 5 years to max of life bans...

    even after butt amir asif fiasco, if these two had the guts to do dodgy things then allowing them back will do more damage to Pak cricket... Even if SK was as good a player as B.C LARA, should be out of the cricket arena if guilty.. No mercy pls...time for PCB to make example out of these two if found guilty...

    Tribunal snubs Khalid’s lawyer, Nasir’s counsel fails to submit brief

    LAHORE: The lawyer of cricketer Khalid Latif suffered yet another setback on Friday as the Anti-corruption Tribunal of the Pakistan Cricket Board rejected his objections over the eligibility of Justice Asghar Haider Rizvi to head the tribunal in the PSL spot-fixing case.

    In a related development, the lawyer of key suspect in the case, opener Nasir Jamshed, failed to submit his answering brief to the tribunal.

    One-man disciplinary tribunal of Justice (retd.) Fazal Miran Chohan dismissed the petition of Khalid’s lawyer objecting that Justice Asghar, as former legal advisor of the PCB, was not eligible to hear the PSL spot-fixing case in which the PCB was the main party. Justice Fazal in his short order issued on Friday said that Justice Asghar could hear the case.

    Earlier, Khalid’s lawyer had challenged the standing of the tribunal before the Lahore High Court, which also rejected the petition and ordered him and his client to appear before the tribunal.

    Khalid’s lawyer adopted the stance that neither the PCB chairman could appoint anti-corruption tribunal, nor the tribunal had any legal standing because its proceedings are against the constitution of the country.

    Meanwhile, opener Nasir’s lawyer Hasan Warriach did not submit the answering brief before the tribunal and sought some more time, because his client was in London and he could not travel to Pakistan. It may be mentioned that the National Crime Agency of England (NCAE) had seized his passport in the same case of spot-fixing.

    However, Hasan asserted that the PCB had no proof against his client in the spot-fixing case. He said the PCB should give the proof in public or it would face humiliation. He claimed that the PCB just had screen shots in which the players were just having normal conversation to some persons who were later painted as bookies.

    He also said that England’s NCAE also had no proof against his client Nasir Jamshed and that was why it was not providing any proof to the PCB.. It may be mentioned here that in the first week of June, the PCB had requested the tribunal to stop the hearing because the NCA had received more solid evidences against the players and it would hand over those to the PCB in the last week of June. But the lawyers of the cricketers succeeded in opposing the PCB’s petition. However, the month of June has also passed and the PCB is yet to receive any proofs from the NCAE.

    The lawyer surprised everyone by disclosing that the hearing of Nasir in London had been deferred till October this year, instead of being held in the last week of June.

    The lawyer further said he would produce Yousuf and an Englishman named James as witnesses for Nasir Jamshed, who both are being considered as main culprits in the case of spot-fixing by the PCB.

    Meanwhile, PCB’s lawyer Tafazul Rizvi said that Nasir’s lawyer had not yet informed the tribunal that why did NCAE seized the passport of his client in England was not ready to hand it back to the cricketer despite the passage of several months.

    Tafazul also rejected the stance of Nasir’s lawyer in challenging the tribunal to open the proceeding for the public. He said it was not a bout between two wrestlers but a legal case which must be run according to the laws.

    The PCB counsel said Nasir’s lawyer had no ground to claim that the PCB lacked proofs against his client since the Board was yet to furnish the tribunal with the proof against the opener. He added that if the PCB had no proof against the suspected cricketers, they would have gone to the legal courts of the country. “Nasir is not even ready to appear before the tribunal through Skype,” argued Tafazul.

    He further said the hearing against Shahzaib Hasan, another accused cricketer, might be deferred for the second week of July.

    You can not play with the careers of your top players just for the sake of pleasing the international lobby of so called cricket administrators.
    Suresh Raina has been photographed with a top bookie 3 times and he got away with that without much ado. Meiyappan the fixer, the son-in-law of ICC chairman was the co-owner of Chennai Super Kings and on great terms with Dhoni and a bunch of big international players. The whole saga was clearly shady but nothing happened to anyone. The only thing they did was to ban the franchise for a couple of years which of course was merely an eyewash, with players walking out scott free and still doing fixing for other franchise who bought them up.
    They are all still respected cricketers even though Latin Modi vouches strongly that they are all fixers and here PCB has nothing in their hand as a proof but.....

    I think Latif will get caught because boycotting etc obviously means he knows he isn't guilty. Not that fussed if we lose Khalid though, he's an idiot though for doing it (if he has done it) he was a TTF for Pakistan but in his last comeback he had showed he had really improved. Amazing against England then against West Indies and he had really improved from his previous spells in international cricket. Don't think he'll ever wear a Pakistan shirt again

    This is fast becoming a circus. The incompetence by the PCB board, and those in charge of this case have been badly advised in how to conduct themselves.

    It's actually difficult to take anything they claim or so with any seriousness going further.

    I think he meant the story about fixing is believable and can happen, but no evidence makes the case difficult. Don't think he meant they are guilty, but in his opinion the story about fixing etc is believable enough.

    The Lahore High Court (LHC) on Monday rejected cricketer Khalid Latif's intra-court appeal, challenging the dismissal of his writ petition by a single bench and the proceedings of the Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) anti-corruption tribunal on spot-fixing charges against him.

    Latif had appealed to the LHC on May 3, challenging the dismissal of his previous petition.

    Latif had filed the petition through Advocate Zubair Khalid, claiming that the PCB’s anti-corruption tribunal had no jurisdiction to investigate the spot-fixing charges.

    He had said that the tribunal constituted under the PCB anti-corruption code was illegal as the code had not been gazetted in the Pakistan gazette. Criticising powers of the PCB chairman to constitute the tribunal, he said that a LHC single bench dismissed his petition on the matter, ignoring facts of the case.

    The petitioner had asked the court to set aside decision of the single bench and the proceedings against him pending before the PCB anti-corruption tribunal.

    Khalid and four other players had been charged for breaching the PCB’s anti-corruption code during this year’s Pakistan Super League.

    So according to Aqib the story narrated by PCB sounds convincing but no proof was shown. He said I can believe the story but there is no reference or evidence that proves fixing occurred.

    In US sports, such disputes (fixing, betting, lock-out, payment dispute, players' ownership, doping ...) are prosecuted with a dead line - within that period the system (could be internal, led by Commissioner or external - US judicial system) has to give it's verdict. If something can't be proved definitively, benefit of doubt should be given, but it can't be dragged without any end date. In most cases, the actual "deal" is fixed off the court & the judge (internal or external) only legalize the verdict for a legal merit.

    I don't think this back & forth is helping either party here - unnecessary distraction for team PAK as well, which can be dragged for even 1-2 years, because what I understand is both players are guilty, to a certain extent, but PCB doesn't have the concrete evidence, neither the guts or willingness.

    What PCB is doing is simply giving bad name to PAK cricket by dragging these filthy issues for long, which eventually will cost PSL as well. They would have done so even for those 3 had it not been in UK. If there is some cercomstential evidence - just close the case at amicable point for both parties (so that they can keep playing for their bread & butter, while PCB can keep their head in moral height), but don't pick the players for PAK team or even PSL (simple, players will be placed for auction, but no one bids for them - just like IPL franchise did with PAK players for a different issue). SK or KL can drag this case for 10 years, still PCB won't be able to prove much with this current testimonial style, but none can do anything, if Inzi decides not to pick SK or KL on fitness issues.

    What I feel is PCB is trying to show their balls at the expense of Latif, but some corners are happy to allow SK slip through fingers. This is the worst of all possible solutions - double standard. In that case, both should be allowed to slip past & then don't pick Latif for PAK team, but allow him to continue club/FC cricket for rest few years of his career.

    LAHORE: Cricketer Khalid Latif’s counsel has announced that he will challenge Lahore High Court’s (LHC) decision in favour of the Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) Anti-corruption Tribunal before the Supreme Court.

    He was talking to reporters after appearing before the tribunal on the order of the LHC.

    The tribunal is hearing the spot-fixing case against four cricketers, including Khalid, which occurred in the last edition of the Pakistan Super League (PSL) in Dubai.

    The attorney alleged that the PCB had hatched a conspiracy against the players and added that he would hopefully get justice from the Supreme Court.

    He added that Khalid had never given any statement against Sharjeel Khan and it was the latter who took Khalid to meet a bookie.

    He questioned why the PCB did not stop the players from meeting the bookie on July 6 when it had prior information about the meeting.

    The lawyer alleged that the PCB facilitated the meeting with the bookie instead of taking action and stopping players.

    He said the tribunal has handed over copies of all statements of the witnesses to him, which were recorded against Khalid in his absence.

    The tribunal has asked to submit a reply over those statements in next 15 days.

    The tribunal has fixed July 26 as the next date of hearing.

    Meanwhile, PCB’s lawyer said it was Khalid’s right to move the Supreme Court and added that the PCB’s case was much stronger.

    He said his opponent lawyer gave contradictory statements before the tribunal and the media.

    The counsel informed media personnel that PCB Anti-corruption director retired Colonel Azam was in a hospital due to cardiac problems.

    He said the players met with the bookie twice so their claim of accidental meetings with the bookie had no weight.

    He further said both parties have agreed that they would submit their replies before the tribunal till July 26 after which tribunal would decide how next hearings would be held.

    I'm not that fussed about Latif's case and I have a feeling he is guilty. They need to hurry up and make a decision soon on Sharjeel though

    So the panel doesn't have a time limit, despite setting a date. This all points to a kangaroo court process. Nothing is serious enough for these buffoons.

    This whole process has been a joke thus far. An absolute farce.
    Better to let the players play and continue with your never ending process. If someday you manage to complete it then hand over the necessary punishment to the respective individual.
