    Why doesn't Najam Sethi disclose the "evidence" now that Sharjeel has been banned? In any court of law evidence has to be made public.


    Highly ironic that a corrupt person like Najam Sethi is issuing judgement on other people's alleged corruption.

    Not gonna lie here, but I felt he was being punished by the PCB/Sethi way before any actual proof was being presented.

    BUT...This isn't the first time someone has used God/Nation/Relative to clear their name and to express their innocence

    I think PCB just wanted to save face and tried to ban him as quickly as possible with no hard evidence to maintain the “image” they have been building.

    There was over-whelming evidence against the spot-fixing trio and only Butt was doing rona dhona. Amir accepted his guilt pretty early on and Asif remained mum for the most part.



    Even though Sharjeel has been banned no evidence has ever been released which is against all judicial norms.

    Aamir was doing the same rona dhona until his lawyer advised him to come clean since he would get a lighter sentence if he did come clean. Didn't he even swear to his family claiming his innocence before deciding to come clean? The PCB needs to provide evidence against Sharjeel soon.

    Under Pakistani law tribunals have to follow same laws that apply on court. Otherwise whats stopping tribunals from dishing out death penalty for something minor like small theft?


    And any evidence that is used to charge a person has to be presented before them, their lawyer and everyone else in court/tribunal proceedings (hence making it public)

    I remember Salman Butt saying the exact same. But yea cannot deny that Sharjeel's case is very shady and there isn't any concrete proof against him.

    And any evidence that is used to charge a person has to be presented before them, their lawyer and everyone else in court/tribunal proceedings (hence making it public)
    Jurisdiction is what stops them. They would be acting ultra vires. Put simply, the tribunal obtains its power from a source and that source delimits their jurisdiction. The fact a tribunal has to follow the law doesn't mean it has the same range of powers that a Court would. In other words, the tribunal doesn't have the power to dish out the death penalty.

    Again, they aren't under an obligation to disclose the evidence. They published an Order/Judgment which is consistent with their obligations. See Article 8 of the Anti-Corruption Code:

    "Any public disclosure may be withheld or delayed if the PCB, in its reasonable opinion, determines that such disclosure may lead to harm being caused to Participants, officials and/or relevant person; and/or if it is of the reasonable opinion that such disclosure may hinder any relevant investigation or proceedings under this Anti-Corruption Code."

    "If the decision is that an offence has been committed: (a) the decision may, at the discretion of the PCB, be publicly reported in full as soon as possible; and (b) after the decision is publicly reported, the PCB may also publish details of such other parts of the proceedings before the Anti-Corruption Tribunal as the PCB thinks fit."

    For those who keep demanding to see the evidence, see Paragraphs 20 and 21 of the Order:

    "We would also like to state here that under Article 3.2 of the Code for the Participants, the Anti-Corruption Tribunal is not bound by the Rules governing the admissibility of evidence in judicial or other proceedings, instead facts can be established by reliable means, including admissions and circumstantial evidence.

    We therefore, would be discussing evidence on this standard and the threshold as set in Article 3 of the Code and also keeping in
    mind that these are Administrative/Disciplinary proceedings."

    No, but from what I've read, he let some dodgy people get close to him? which then allowed the PCB and the likes of Sethi to go after him. Even with such buffoons leading the PCB, I'm not sure the circumstances surrounding his case would be minor enough for them not to get involved. All in all, we all agree it would have been great if this didn't happen at all as we could do with Sharjeel at the top of the order.

    Sharjeel seeks justice from PM over spot-fixing punishment

    LAHORE: Spot-fixing convict Sharjeel Khan has sought justice from Prime Minister Shahid Khakan Abbasi claiming that injustice has been done to him in his case and he wants a fair trial.

    Talking to the reporters here on Tuesday, Sharjeel vowed that he would fight all allegations leveled against him. "I want to meet Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) chairman Najam Sethi so that I may clear myself on all matters," he said.

    Sharjeel accused the PCB anti-corruption unit of being able to take action against anyone they desire. "The Pakistan Cricket Board tribunal is too weak to take action against anyone, they think, they should punish or ban."

    Pakistan's anti-corruption tribunal had banned opener Sharjeel Khan for five years over a spot-fixing case that has rocked the Pakistan Super League (PSL). The 28-year-old left-handed opener was provisionally suspended along with fellow opener Khalid Latif in February for violating the PCB anti-corruption code. The charges centred on a match between Islamabad United and Peshawar Zalmi in Dubai in February. Off four balls, Sharjeel scored a single, failed to score off two deliveries and was then out.

    Spot-fixing involves bets on the outcome of a particular passage of play, unlike match-fixing in which there is an attempt to prearrange the result. Latif, who did not play in the game, was alleged to have orchestrated the deal. Both were also charged for not reporting the matter to the PCB's anti-corruption unit.

    "Sharjeel is banned for five years, which has two-and-a-half years suspended," said Asghat Haider, who headed the three-member tribunal. "We investigated all the charges and found them correct." The minimum punishment for the charges was five years with a maximum of a life ban.

    Former PCB head Tauqir Zia and erstwhile Pakistan captain Wasim Bari were the other members of the tribunal formed in March. Under the PCB code, players can appeal rulings before an independent arbitrator within 14 days of the decision. Four other players M Irfan, Shahzaib Hasan, Nasir Jamshed and M Nawaz were also included in the investigation on multiple charges. - SAMAA/AGENCIES

    If a Pakistani cricketer has been accused of match-fixing, the chances are very high that he is a guilty. There is a strong correlation between match-fixing and our cricketing culture. To put it the other way - I don't trust our players.

    Besides, it was the ICC ACU that tapped the PCB - they have been watching Sharjeel for a couple of years now. Let's not forget the threatening phone calls that he received in 2016. It is likely that there is a connection there.

    If not, then I wonder why Sharjeel finds himself in such situations over and over again. Co-incidence, I think not. There is plenty of smoke for me to ignore the idea that Saint Sharjeel has been victimized by the PCB and Najam Sethi specifically.

    they don't have to prove anything to you. they have a process that found him guilty.
    but sure you can argue the earth is flat since you are not consulted when the scientists went about proving it is not flat.

    Quite frankly, this comment is as silly as it is stupid, and I say that as someone who agrees with the tribunal's decision.

    I feel obligated to defend the posters you are insulting, even though they disagree with my views, as your comments are well below the belt and I am not interested in being an opportunist.

    It is fundamentally dishonest for you to try and straw-man the position of those who disagree/criticising the tribunal's decision. No one has said he should be glorified. Rather some posters have raised their concerns about whether there was sufficient evidence to convict him. That is a relevant discussion to have, whatever you try and say.

    Like I said, I say this as someone who thinks there was sufficient evidence and as someone who thinks the tribunal was largely independent.

    As for the "sorry mentality of our nation", I suggest you look closer to home.

    It makes my blood boil that Sethi has not even produced even one single bit of evidence against this young man! To me, he's innocent until he's PROVEN guilty! Give me the EVIDENCE first! Take Sharjeel to court and prove yourselves over there THEN I'll believe you! It's all Sethi's fault that stupid players Shehzad still can wiggle his way into the team if someone gets injured, if Sharjeel was in the team, Selfie Boy's Career would be over and we could all witness our dream of a destructive Sharjeel+Fakhar opening duo.

    How many times??

    Read the Order/Judgment if you want to see why he was found guilty.

    The PCB aren't under an obligation to disclose the evidence. See Article 8 of the Anti-Corruption Code:

    "Any public disclosure may be withheld or delayed if the PCB, in its reasonable opinion, determines that such disclosure may lead to harm being caused to Participants, officials and/or relevant person; and/or if it is of the reasonable opinion that such disclosure may hinder any relevant investigation or proceedings under this Anti-Corruption Code."

    "If the decision is that an offence has been committed: (a) the decision may, at the discretion of the PCB, be publicly reported in full as soon as possible; and (b) after the decision is publicly reported, the PCB may also publish details of such other parts of the proceedings before the Anti-Corruption Tribunal as the PCB thinks fit."

    With the trio there was clear visual evidence with all the bookies. In this case the crime seems to be playing a few dot balls with no evidence, if any released. Seems like everytime we get a good player he gets set-up or something like that.

    He was guilty and I say this as Sharjeel's biggest fan. People blaming Sethi should know Sethi was not part of the Tribunal nor could he have them dance to his tune. Please be realistic. Sharjeel will still be found guilty in his appeal with a new tribunal.

    Only in Pakistan do you defend fixers like this . He's been proven guilty wheather you like it or not. We need to move on . Don't want cheats like this to represent us again. Amir returning set a bad precedent. That you can fix and still come back.

    So no criminal should be allowed to re-integrate into society? What if your family member committed the crime? Would you think differently? Hawai firing with the keyboard is easy work but I bet you would have different opinion if you or your rishtedaar were involved.

    He can play domestic cricket but he should kept away from international cricket. We are talking about a game of cricket not a criminal. And how I would deal with my family if they committed a crime is none of your business.

    Is Sharjeel your family that your defending him like this?

    Another thing for Sharjeel cheerleaders. The rest of the cricketing world will see this case as Sharjeel guilty and that's it . They won't care about the finer details . So let's say Sharjeel comes back and plays for Pakistan after serving his ban, Pakistans reputation will take another hit. He can play domestic cricket again but whilst he's been convicted of fixing he shouldn't represent Pakistan again . If the case is reviewed and the decision is overturned than we can look at bringing him back into the fold but until than Sharjeel cheerleaders need to stop trying to defend this chest. The rest of the cricketing world will only see him as a cheat.

    The guilty party is the one changing the PCB CONSTITUTION mere 2 days before they announced the Sharjeel verdict. As per this constitution, the defendant is supposed to appeal either to the "independent" PCB panel or CAS in Switzerland. The defendant can't go to a court in Pakistan.

    Based on just this fact, i can safely say that PCB is guilty, of mishandling this case and wrongfully convicting an innocent. How do people in PCB go to bed at night. Moreover, how do some of the posters here sleep at night when they accuse an innocent of crimes he never committed.

    PCB amends its anti-corruption code to avoid players appeals in Pakistan courts

    LAHORE: Banned Pakistan cricketer Sharjeel Khan on Tuesday, reiterating once again his innocence, said that he had been implicated in the Pakistan Super League (PSL) II spot-fixing case on mere assumptions and without any concrete evidence. “My lawyer and I have fully cooperated throughout proceedings and I was expecting justice,” Sharjeel told media, reading a prepared statement in Lahore. “But regretfully, at the end all I face is injustice. The PCB anti-corruption unit forcefully inducted me into a case which is beyond my understanding. Maybe there is another story hidden behind this which may be revealed with time. I swear to my nation and my fans that I am innocent.” Sharjeel appeared for the first time in front of the media since his provisional suspension on February 10, continuing to proclaim his innocence. His ban, a suspended sentence, is effectively for two and a half years, meaning he cannot plot a return before the second half of 2019 at the earliest. He was representing Islamabad United at the PSL and was charged with five major breaches of the PCB’s anti-corruption code. He was found guilty on all five counts by a three-man tribunal. The case against Sharjeel was centred on him playing pre-determined dot balls agreed with a bookmaker.

    If Sharjeel does not show public remorse and undergo the PCB’s rehabilitation programme, he could end up serving the full five-year sentence. “Cricket is in my blood and it’s my passion and the punishment is severely painful for me and my family,” he said. “But what is more distressing is that I am being labelled a spot-fixer. So I have decided to clear my name and I will take this matter as far as possible.”

    PCB amends Anti-corruption code: It is pertinent to mention that the PCB has amended their anti-corruption code in an attempt to prevent players from appealing their punishments in Pakistani courts, even as a tribunal was sitting on a number of spot-fixing cases. The lawyer of Sharjeel will file a writ petition against what he considers to be the PCB’s male-fide intentions. “During the proceedings of Sharjeel’s case, the PCB amended their anti-corruption code, which is obviously not in good faith,” Shaighan Ejaz, Sharjeel’s lawyer, said. “They had made a change in their code on July 18, 2017. Just a month and two days later, a verdict
    was announced and neither the tribunal nor the independent adjudicator was informed about it. This is questionable behaviour.”

    The relevant new clause — 7.5.4 of the PCB’s anti-corruption code — reads: “An appeal against the decision of the Independent Adjudicator shall lie excessively before the CAS.” The CAS is the Court of Arbitration (Sports), based in Lausanne, Switzerland. The amended clause at the centre of the row effectively rules out Sharjeel’s ability to take his case to the Court of Appeals in Lausanne. “The parties may, if they so desire, file an appeal under Article 7, read with Article 7.4 of the PCB’s of the PCB’s Anti-Corruption Code for Participant, 2015, within 14 days of the receipt of the detailed decision, before the Court of Appeals in Lausanne, Switzerland, or an Independent Adjudicator in terms of the Constitution of the PCB.” Given that an independent adjudicator has already heard Sharjeel’s case, this clause would appear to rule out an appeal in Switzerland. And previously the clause did not make an appeal exclusive to the CAS.

    “The attempt they made is to oust the Pakistan judicial system and made sure that we will only be left with the option to go into the court of arbitration in Switzerland – which is obviously not feasible,” Ejaz said. “But I understand that you cannot rule out the jurisdiction of Pakistan’s courts and this will not happen. This is uncalled for. We will approach the high court soon; in fact, we will file a writ petition this month.”

    A PCB’s spokesman told reporters that the modification was a routine change, and not one specifically designed to be applied to Sharjeel’s case. “In modern day sports, no code or regulation can remain stagnant,” he said. “Efforts to curb corrupt conduct in sports are updated regularly. Similarly, the PCB anti-corruption code also undergoes periodic reviews and amendments. Such amendments are never person-specific, and are applicable to all cricketers.” Pakistan courts have been involved in several PCB cases over the years, and haven’t been afraid to overturn board decisions on, to take one example, player bans and punishments.

    “During the entire process, we understood that the anti-corruption officials are not accountable,” Ijaz said. “They have all the discretion to do any kind of discrimination against any player and can trap any player and make any kind of case against anyone.” During the proceedings, PCB officials claimed Sharjeel had confessed to wrongdoing in Dubai and in Lahore on video. Sharjeel denies that is the case. “There were two interviews recorded, one inDubai and the other in Lahore. On both occasions, I never confessed anything.” Ijaz said: “They had claimed that there was a lot of information from the ICC, and the PCB had prior knowledge of everything which was allegedly going to happen. This is an afterthought. If they knew anything, then there should be proof of it. Then why is that not presented at all? Where are they? The most important thing is the statement by PSL chairman Najam Sethi. He said they had concrete evidence and a lot of things which a chairman should not have said. It seriously prejudiced proceedings and made the whole case a matter of ego, and Sharjeel’s exoneration would have proved personally embarrassing for Sethi.”

    It is fundamentally dishonest for you to try and straw-man the position of those who disagree/criticising the tribunal's decision. No one has said he should be glorified. Rather some posters have raised their concerns about whether there was sufficient evidence to convict him. That is a relevant discussion to have, whatever you try and say.

    Like i said, i say this as someone who thinks there was sufficient evidence and as someone who thinks the tribunal was largely independent.

    I didn't say any of that... When there is solid evidence then the fixers should be banned. Did you see Asif and Butt come back to the side? FYI other countries allow their convicted match fixers to return to domestic cricket or even venture into other things e.g. politics, tv shows.

    Lol Butt has been talked about returning to the national side. In fact had it not been for Shajeel stupidity he was going to be called up versus West Indies. PCB realised after Sharjeel action they couldn't recall a fixer when they were potentially had another fixer who was caught.

    As I said Sharjeel can play domestic cricket but he should not represent Pakistan again. When did I say he can't go on tv or politics? Your not even reading my posts.

    It is not just about Sharjeel and the particular posters that you feel the urge to vehemently defend. Pakistani fans have a rich and illustrious history of apologizing for its tainted player - Sharjeel is just an example of how we react whenever a players of ours finds himself in hot water. Be it the Justice Qayyum report, the spot-fixing trio (Amir in particular) or Sharjeel.

    On a lighter note, the same logic is extended to the chuckers as well. Basically, a curious propensity to explore ways of proving our players innocent and exporting the blame to other parties. So yes, as a nation, we indeed have a very sorry mentality and love to play the victim card.

    Whether Sethi is a saint or not has absolutely nothing to do with Sharjeel. The ICC ACU have watched him for years, he has received suspicious phone calls in the past and I don't see any reason why Sethi and the PCB would specifically target Sharjeel to make themselves look efficient.

    This press statement is being issued to address and correct certain misrepresentations by Mr. Sharjeel Khan at a press conference held on 05-12-17.

    Mr Khan claims that the Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) amended its Anti-Corruption Code (the “PCB Code”) with the aim of preventing players from filing appeals before Pakistani courts. This is completely wrong.

    The true state of affairs is that under both versions of the PCB Code (old and new) an appeal against the order of the Anti-Corruption Tribunal lies with the Independent Adjudicator. Article 7.5.4 provides that the decision of the independent adjudicator on the appeal shall be final and binding on all parties. The amendment made by PCB in fact provides parties with an additional opportunity to appeal i.e. before Court of Arbitration for Sports (CAS). Sporting bodies including cricket regard CAS as the final court of appeal.

    To dispel the misinformation reference can also be made to Article 11.5 of the PCB Code, the relevant portions of which are reproduced below:

    “…the Courts of Pakistan shall have exclusive jurisdiction to issue relief….and/or to hear and determine challenges to any decision issued by the Anti-Corruption Tribunal and/or CAS.”

    It may also be clarified that the amendment will affect future cases and does not apply to Sharjeel Khan.

    It is unbecoming of Sharjeel and his legal team to deliberately level patently false allegations against Col ® Mohammad Azam Khan, Chairman Najam Sethi and other PCB officials.

    The PCB team has proven all charges of Corrupt Conduct that it made out against Cricketers Sharjeel Khan and Khalid Latif before the Independent Anti-Corruption Tribunal.

    Thereafter, Sharjeel appealed his conviction on all 5 charges before the Independent Adjudicator (an Honorable Former Judge of Supreme Court of Pakistan) who rejected Sharjeel’s appeal and upheld the charges. This is indicative of the volume and gravity of evidence that was presented by PCB and underlines the fact that the case was not prejudiced by any personality.

    PCB remains resilient in its efforts to eliminate the menace of corruption from the game of cricket.

    The other countries you're talking about ~ IIRC Jadeja won a court case to get back to cricket, what did you do ~ bury Qayum reports because he was Akram's fan? Azhar cannot be barred from politics because of cricket, this isn't a monarchy or dictatorship where you make laws on a whim! If that were to be then more than half the politicians in Pak would be disqualified &/or be in jail, same goes for India.

    Akram was let off the hook because there was no Evidence against him only Ata Ur Rehman's Testimony, But Ata ruined it by changing his statement (For which Ata was punished severely). Salim Malik was Handed a Life Ban. You cant just life Ban someone because one person says so Remember Manoj Prabhakar Against Kapil Dev.
    Qayyum is a drama queen, who keeps making statements to stay relevant in the media. If he was such a fan of Wasim Akram he should have excused himself from the inquiry altogether.

    As for Sharjeel the evidence is being kept under wraps, so more corrupt players can be caught in future. (Plus bookies don't need to be tipped off how they can be caught) We don't need Sharjeel Since Sharjeel is gone, Pakistan has unearthed not 1 but 2 openers of same or better quality (Fakher Zaman & Sahibzada Farhan) & Farhan has yet to play. No Need for cheats.

    Qayyum is a drama queen, who keeps making statements to stay relevant in the media. If he was such a fan of Wasim Akram he should have excused himself from the inquiry altogether.

    As for Sharjeel the evidence is being kept under wraps, so more corrupt players can be caught in future. (Plus bookies don't need to be tipped off how they can be caught) We don't need Sharjeel Since Sharjeel is gone, Pakistan has unearthed not 1 but 2 openers of same or better quality (Fakher Zaman & Sahibzada Farhan) & Farhan has yet to play. No Need for cheats.
    He should've & that was my point. The other point being that India has life banned anyone they could've banned, with the exception of Jadeja because of high court verdict, & not given them an inch back into cricket. So his faux outrage about Jadeja or Azhar is petty & useless.

    Sure & this is what many are saying, they need not present evidence to him. The only conspiracy theory is wrt making him a scapegoat, which is ridiculous unless Sharjeel himself has some dirt on the PCB.

    Neither Fakhar nor Farhan hold a candle to Sharjeel's ability, his hand-eye coordination was unmatched.

    Though I don't want him near the cricket team, his case has been very shady and I am inclined towards believing the charges against him. We need to move on, another opener will come eventually.

    Speaking on TV tonight:

    "I have done nothing which will bring disrepute to the name of Pakistan"

    "The way I cooperated for 10 months with PCB, I was hoping that I will get justice from them"

    "We have heard of corruption in T20 so in T10 format a lot more can happen with so many teams participating in it"

    "I went for dinner near our hotel and I was introduced to the bookie"

    "I have also heard that all fixing seems to start from India"

    "When the offer was made to me, I was completely overwhelmed by what was happening and could not think about informing PCB etc"

    "I stretch before every game I play and have been playing with a yellow grip for a many years now"

    "I dont see anything proven against me in the anti-corruption tribunal" :

    Sharjeel did not score a match winning century in a foreign CT final against the bitter rival did he? I will wait

    Yes, Fakhar did an excellent job dealing with the short ball using his head. Fakhar's grit and determination shouldn't be confused with his ability, which doesn't match that of Sharjeel's.
