    Sharjeel Khan case : Aaqib Javed testifies before anti-corruption tribunal [#316]

    A tribunal on Monday started hearings into spot-fixing charges against five players who could face life bans if found guilty.

    The tribunal convened by the Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) is headed by Justice Asghar Haider. Former Pakistan captain Wasim Bari and ex-PCB chairman Tauqir Zia are also members.

    Prosecutors played a tape in which opening batsman Sharjeel Khan admitted having met a bookmaker but denied any wrongdoing.

    Sharjeel is one of five players provisionally suspended in the case, which surfaced during the second edition of the Pakistan Super League (PSL) tournament staged in the United Arab Emirates in February. He was present during the hearing.

    Khalid Latif, Shahzaib Hasan and Nasir Jamshed are also facing charges punishable by a minimum five-year ban and a maximum suspension for life.

    In March fast bowler Mohammad Irfan had admitted failing to report an approach to fix a match and was banned for six months, with six more suspended. He was also fined Rs1 million. Another player, Mohammad Nawaz, was also summoned by PCB anti-corruption unit in the spot fixing case but has not yet been charged. Once charged his case would also be submitted before tribunal.

    PCB lawyer Taffazul Rizvi said Sharjeel had admitted meeting a bookie along with Khalid.

    “He also accepted that man was linked to fixing and that whatever was decided in that meeting panned out in the agreed manner,” Rizvi told reporters.

    But Sharjeel in the recorded statement said the fact that he played two dot (non-scoring) balls at a particular point in a game was not linked to spot-fixing.

    Spot-fixing involves determining the outcome of a specific part of a match, rather than fixing the result. It can centre on something as minor as the number of wide or dot balls at any particular time. The match in question was Islamabad United's first in the PSL, in which Sharjeel played two dot balls and scored one run.

    The PCB's anti-corruption unit believes Sharjeel took money to play the dot balls. Witnesses are due to give evidence to the tribunal on Tuesday. Sharjeel's lawyer Shaigan Ijaz said his client expects a favourable result.

    Such a shame because Nawaz and Sharjeel both had bright futures in the game. That being said, you lie in the bed you make. Even if they (maybe not Nawaz) didn't spot-fix, they not only didn't report the approach but they also met with the bookies in person.

    A ban is in order, the only thing left to be decided is how big was the crime.

    Get it over with ASAP. Guilty players should face punishment commensurate to their crime. Spot fixers deserve life ban.

    I read his statement where he said " Yes, I did play two dot balls but they were not related to spot fixing"

    Just get it over with quickly. If they are guilty punish them according to their crime and if they are innocent let them resume with their careers as soon as possible.

    If they are involved in fixing then they should be banned for 5 years at the very least. If the only crime which has been proven against them is not reporting contact with bookies a 1 year ban will be appropriate.

    Seems like Sharjeel is complicit in something dodgy regardless of evidence. I'd be happy for him never to play for Pakistan again personally.

    Look:

    There were similar reports from samaa one or two months ago saying that sharjeel accepted that he did spot fixing, and they were totally wrong

    In yesterday's hearing, sharjeel and his lawyer rejected all the allegations. Does it make sense that sharjeel accepts them the next day ?

    Finally, sharjeel's lawyer today said that he was happy with today's proceeding.

    Hopefully these reports are wrong, ang Inshallah a good decision will come out in the upcoming days.

    So why would Sharjeel agree to a deal with a bookie but not perform as he said he would?

    I still think the truth has not fully come out yet.

    It's a baffling statement by Channel24 tbh. I see other news organisations have the exact same story, but I haven't seen one of the bigger media outlets with a clearer story.

    This seems like a story made-up for the clicks. So let's just wait and see.

    Looks like he probably did fix on those two balls that he defended as it was instructed to. But he can just claim it's coincidence, he didn't actively mean to do it. Think he's trying to get a lesser sentence on technicality.

    The fact that he agreed to do a deal with the bookie and took the money IMO is enough to charge him with fixing. Minimum 5 year ban should be in place. If we are to be fair as with Butt, Amir, Asif he should be given a 5 year ban. But if it were up to me they would all get life bans from international cricket, and perhaps a 5 year ban (maybe more) in domestic.

    That ** will not fly with any tribunal panel.

    Once you took the money - it is very hard to prove otherwise that you did not follow the instructions.

    Unless he took the money and did the complete opposite just to **** the bookies off lol i.e. charged down the track first ball to hit a six!

    I don't think it will fly lol, but that was the impression I was getting they were trying to do. As he did play those two balls for no runs according to the bookie's wants.

    Gibbs should have been banned far longer really. I think he never actually had the money transferred to him, which I think helped his case.

    However the updated post 59 looks like Sharjeel is claiming more or less total innocence really (not even mentioning intention to fix, he just met the person due to a friend who happened to be a bookie, which would lead to the conclusion that Sharjeel did not know this man was a bookie). This defence makes more sense tbh it did seem a bit weird to admit to meeting the bookie, agreeing to fix and taking the money, but then "not carrying out the deed" despite the fact he did exactly what the bookie wanted.

    I think you need reading classes. News of Sharjeel admitting to fixing are just reports and not an official release...and PCB is yet to punish anyone related to the case. Hold your horses.

    Sharjel was the best ODI batsmen that Pak produced in the last decade. Though he may be inconsistent, he can give great starts if a little luck goes his way.

    5 years of no cricket means he will double his belly in the mean time. Even if he comes back, he will not make it to the squad.

    Sharjeel was only good in those flat bouncy Australian pitches..... Like many other players.... The reason why Warner has been so successful also... But Sharjeel would have played his cricket in slower conditions.... He would have ended his career with average of 35 SR 110... A loss but not a massive one like Asif.

    If he took the money and did not report the approach, it doesn't matter after that. He is guilty regardless of whether he followed through with what he promised or not.

    A long well-deserved ban looms.

    Its a big loss . I really really liked sharjeel but no sympathy for traitors. The guys must be REALLY thick in the head to make teh same mistakes as Aamir, Aasif and butt even after seeing what happened to them . Forget the morality of the issue even without it this was the stupidest thing a Pakistani player can do .

    Something new will come out everyday because now it is day to day proceedings. It is in Sharjeel's best interest to accept his guilt if he has actually committed spot fixing.

    It was only a league match plus he has admitted so I expect either a 1 or 2 year ban from the PSL and maybe 6 month to 1 year bank from International circuit.

    The length of the ban can be what it may - whatever happens if guilty he should never find himself playing for Pakistan again. If you don't set proper examples to our players that fixing is intolerable the cycle will never stop repeating itself. There is a culture of match fixing in our society without a doubt and probably began with Wasim and co if not before.

    Stop overexaggerating it. He was a very good batsman but not the best in the last 10 - if that was the case he should've been in the squad 5 years ago. He could've improved but we wouldn't know. Bye Sharjeel

    Delighted to be back my friends.

    The PCB is taking too much time on this, the more time and effort involved in charging and convicting these players, the more time they will get to find loopholes and sympathizers to listen to their made up *** stories with conspiracy theories.

    ‘Sharjeel timely informed PCB of his meeting with suspected bookie’

    LAHORE: Sharjeel Khan’s counsel told the Anti-corruption Tribunal on Tuesday that his client had timely informed the relevant authority of the Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) about his meeting with a person, who was later recognised as a bookie by the Board.

    Sharjeel is facing an inquiry for his alleged involvement in spot-fixing during the second edition of the Pakistan Super League.

    On the second day of day-to-day hearing, lawyer Sheghan Ijaz informed the tribunal that playing dot balls was not a crime but part of the game.

    Later, talking with the media, he said, “We are quite satisfied with today’s progress and our stance is clear. It is also not a crime to meet any person on the request of another cricketer.”

    He further said Sharjeel had met a friend of his fellow player on the afternoon of the first match of PSL’s second edition.

    Ijaz added they also cross-examined Anti-corruption Unit’s head retired Colonel Azam.

    PCB’s attorney Tafazzul Rizvi said he would not comment on the issue as it was being examined by the Anti-corruption Tribunal.

    He added that conversions between the players which had been recorded on WhatsApp were produced before the tribunal.

    If these guys were truly innocent, they wouldn't give a damn about any legal formalities, instructions by the board to keep mum, they would be screaming their innocence in the media within 10 minutes, but that didn't happen, their weak scared body language and the fact they weren't vocal, aggressive enough to defend themselves immediately gave them away instantly

    Once you took the money - it is very hard to prove otherwise that you did not follow the instructions.

    Unless he took the money and did the complete opposite just to **** the bookies off lol i.e. charged down the track first ball to hit a six!

    I believe Herschelle Gibbs did that back in 2001.

    A bookie paid him to get out for a low score during SAF's tour of India - ODI leg. However, he ended up scoring 83 lol

    It was why he got off with only a slap on the wrist in the form of a 6 month ban whereas Hansie Cronje got a life ban.

    to b fair PCB needs to put forward evidance like those in 2010 case. And it could only be done in 2 ways.

    1 either a fellow player who was in the said meeting testifies in fornt of committed. or the said booki himself gives the statmen.

    2 there is recorded proof of the cinversation if sharjeel accepting or negotiating the same.

    in first case the board will need further evidance that payment was made to sgarjeel. as he could easily reject such statments as personal grudge.

    other wise just saying that he met a booki. and played 20 dots in the match is just speculation. and not a proof of spot fixing but just minor offence of non reporting an approch

    Still think Sharjeel has a strong case to defend... PCB doesn't have direct proof that links him to playing dot balls..

    Also from what I've heard, Sharjeel's lawyer is very very good!

    That's why the PCB screwed up by dragging this whole thing for so long. The longer it takes, the more time the defendants have to build sympathy in the media, their supporters, the more time they have to concoct stories, conspiracy theories, to find legal loopholes.

    Sharjeel also seems to have the best lawyer of them all, heard he teaches somewhere as well, but I'm not sure about that..
    PCB will find it difficult to provide hardcore evidence against Sharjeel, if they did, this wouldn't be a case at all and no defence could be made of this.

    The lawyer is right, when was playing dot balls a crime?

    Err, supposedly it was first reported by some outlet, then another media outlet picked it up - BUT neither had any source nor did they provide any other proof barring the link posted. Both their stories were identical from each other.

    His lawyer didn't even mention anything in-regards to that, instead said he was happy with how the proceedings went.

    I think it was a case of blatant, shameless sensationalism. Sharjeel might have confirmed meeting the bookie and the pathetic media made it sound like Sharjeel confessed to involvement in spot-fixing.

    Look, if Sharjeel is guilty no-one can save him, and nor should they.
