    Sharjeel Khan ready to enter PCB rehabilitation programme, could be eligible to play by Sep 2019

    KARACHI: Opening batsman Sharjeel Khan, who has been serving a suspended sentence for his role in the PSL spot-fixing case in 2017, has decided to take the rehabilitation course in a bid to resume competitive cricket after the culmination of his suspension period.

    If Sharjeel goes through the rehabilitation process and cooperates with the PCB then he could be eligible to play for Pakistan by September 2019.

    A source privy to the development has said that Sharjeel had a meeting with Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) chairman Ehsan Mani in Lahore a few weeks back in which the hard hitting left-hander requested the chairman to review his case.

    “Sharjeel has no intentions to challenge his suspension and is willing to enter the PCB rehabilitation programme. The left-hander has formally assured the PCB of his cooperation in this regard”, the source said

    “He (Sharjeel) wants an early return to domestic cricket, prior to the culmination of the 30-month ban, like Mohammad Amir”, the source added.

    As per the PCB anti corruption code clause 6.8, the chairman or other relevant authority, as authorised by the chairman of PCB, has the discretion to permit a banned player to participate in domestic matches at any time prior to the end of the period of ineligibility, after taking into account the procedure prescribed in the code.

    Salman Butt and Mohammad Asif did the rehabilitation course. Both would walk into the team for the South Africa Tests, but where are they?

    I suggest people read my other thread about the total lack of evidence cited by the PCB in finding Sharjeel guilty.

    They actually failed to provide any evidence whatsoever.

    All of these are fixers. There is no smoke without fire. If he has agreed to do the rehabilitation course, it means he has already confessed internally.

    Read the other thread.

    Don Sethi made it clear to all four that they would be indefinitely excluded unless they did the rehab course.

    I think doing time and walking back into the team is laughable.

    Would a pedophile who was a teacher do time and then come back into same school as a teacher or a bank manager who embezzled do time and be rehired by the same bank?

    This is not a joke that you do time and then you are eligible again.

    Yes, you are eligible for a million other jobs but not the job you cheated your primary corporation out of.

    I would agree and given him a life ban if there was evidence but PCB have failed to provide evidence.

    Yes because a guy who rapes and destroys the lives of innocent kids forever causing them unimaginable trauma or worse death is the same as a guy who probably got paid to score 2 dot balls and caused no physical or mental harm to anyone.

    You could probably make a lot of cases for Sharjeel to be not allowed, but like other wrist slitters you have to make the worst one.

    Precedent my friend.

    Precedent.

    Forget pedophiles, if you gamble your life, you only cause harm to yourself, but would you be allowed back into the casino, if you cheated there?

    Anyhow PCB is desperately weak and there is every chance that with our corrupt fans, we will continue to hire the same people who commit evil.

    Well put. By including him in the team, PCB would only give a message that it's alright to do fixing again. If you are caught, just harp on about how innocent you are. If that doesn't work either, admit it in the last and you are good to go.

    No he probably doesn't want to risk being banned for the full 5 years. He's just taken the cautious approach. Fact still stands that the PCB have still failed to provide evidence. Also worth reading this:

    His career is over, might earn a living from club cricket and PAK domestics, but don't think we'll see him ever in PAK colors. Even if he makes a come back in 2019 domestic season, he'll need a full year just to prove his worth, that too if he performs, therefore very little chance for him to make 2020 T20 WC squad in AUS. Earliest he can expect to make PAK squad is probably in 2021, that's more than 2 years from now, when he'll be officially 31+. Not the fittest guy and I doubt he'll ever reach his 2016-17 heights at that age - PLs & SLs may be, but not for International cricket any more.

    We can't have fixers come back into the team anymore. Its not setting a good example that you can fix and represent our great country again. I did enjoy watching Sharjeel bat and had high hopes for him. But I don't want this cheat to wear the Pakistan shirt again.

    Sharjeel Khan back to cricket at the World Cup?

    Easily our best opener in more than a decade.

    Does anyone know if it's possible to bring him back and select for the world cup squad?

    Any possibility like when is his ban ending?

    The latest they can bring him back (In contention to WC) is PSL; so that he can be considered for AUS & ENG ODI (provided that he can prove his worth & fitness in PSL). I don't think, he has any realistic chance to make this WC after couple of full seasons out of competitive cricket. If Mani (new PCB regime) was interested to bring him back, ideally, they should have allowed to play him in this year's List A Cup and may be few games of the A tours. Don't think he can make it now, but yes could have been a force in WC.

    Babar at 3 would take all the momentum away provided by Fakhar and Sharjeel at the top with his dot balls mastery. Put some one at 3 who knows how to rotate the strike to make this 'one hell of a batting line up'

    Sharjeel Khan has shown us what he can do, any Pakistani player who does well in Australia should be an automatic selection.

    Babar Azam is Pakistan’s Joe Root

    Shan Masood done well in domestic circuit, played some aggressive shots in the recent test matches.

    Khushdil Shah averages 44 @ 92 and was the second highest run scorer in the recent one day cup

    Umar Akmal is our best batsman against pace bowling. What we need from him is a quick fire 30-40 that’s if the players above him do their job.

    Faheem Ashraf and Shadab Khan add depth to our batting which is what we need, badly.

    Hasan Ali showed us yesterday that he’s our main bowler.

    Mohammad Amir, doesn’t leak runs.

    Junaid Khan, bowls well in SC

    Babar proved me right in first ODI as he always does. Played too many dots, accumulated good enough score for himself to maintain his average and to receive his blind fans praise and then got out in a horrible way. Lol so typical of him

    I wonder when we’ll get an interview where we hear his side of the story.

    I was a big fan of his but now I really don’t care whether he returns or not.

    More than anything I want to see what really happened becuase there was a lot of speculation and rumours but nothing concrete.

    With Sethi gone now maybe we’ll see him open up about the whole scenario now.

    He won't be back before 2020.

    How can he just enter in an international team after being out of cricket for almost 2 years? We all have seen how a ban changed Amir's bowling flow.

    Sharjeel will need a full season in domestic first. We might see him in 2020.

    butt's career is over, he would have been useful in odis but imam is already doing what butt would have done.

    plus sharjeel should have learned a thing or two from the trio

    I hope not. If Pakistan cricket has any seldom of self-respect and dignity left, Amir should be the last fixer to be allowed to resume his international career.

    Najam Sethi's ego got him. He was never proved a spot fixer.

    If a Pakistani player is accused of fixing, the chances are high that he is guilty. In fact, the chances are 100% that he is guilty to an extent, and that is enough.

    There is no reason why Sethi would specifically go out of his way to target Saint Sharjeel of all people. The threatening calls that he received long before this scandal probably has something to do with this. The extent of his guilt is irrelevant. The only way Pakistan can get rid of the fixing problem is to completely purge such players out of its system.

    The PCB report of his hearing basically says “we have found him guilty because Najam Sethi says he’s guilty. But we have no evidence whatsoever.”

    And he probably accepted it in the end just to get rid of this case in order to move on in life.

    I guess we will never know the real truth. Anyway he might be done forever. At the least not coming back before 2020.

    I am almost certain SK was guilty to an extent - at least motive to do a crime (here fixing) was there. But, either he couldn’t act accordingly or changed mind - in any case, he shouldn’t have suffered capital punishment.

    I’ll stick to my point that the trial was flawed, vindictive and hastily closed to show some ‘intent’ from PCB regarding their effort to clear PAK cricket’s image. Nazam Sethi had utmost power in PCB & had the control over media, hence he got what he wanted at the expense of a ‘soft’ target - a Hyderabady guy from Sindhy community. In a fair trail, SK should have never suffered more than few moths ban; may be financial loss, fine, demotion in central contract, but not ban from cricket, that too for so long, literally finishing the career of a professional sportsman.

    I can write lot about PAK cricketers from 1990s, who went almost unpunished after JQ report, but it’s not required any more. Here SK is the scapegoat of a showman trying to prove his credibility. If SK is punished for life like this, then 9 years back, Wahab Riaz deserved something as well for his leather jacket - nothing happened to a player from Lahore with influential family backings.

    Sometimes I feel people of our country announce the verdict against someone just because of his star value. Nawaz Sharif looks corrupt, probably is corrupt and therefore should be sentenced for life even if courts can't find him guilty. Imran Khan obviously doesn't look corrupt and therefore isn't corrupt either. Let's mock journalists bringing up his scandals.

    There was a bloke named Khalid Latif as well. He was sentenced in the same way as Sharjeel, but you don't see his name being brought up by any fan. Why? Because he doesn't have any star value to him and therefore he probably is guilty. But Sharjeel? No no, Sethi wanted him out of team. Why? Because Sethi looks corrupt too.

    We already picked Amir who did far worse by fixing in an international test match, so we can't discriminate against Sharjeel. Plus the Sharjeel case has never been proven publicly, Who knows what Najam Sethi and co were doing, we never saw any proof.

    There is no guarantee sharjeel will be same player he was before ban .We should learnt from amir who was considered as a national saviour and failed to live up the expectations we have from him .

    I never said he will be the same, but we have to try him. He was the best opener we had in this decade, and if we want to win the WT20 next year, we need him or another player like him to open alongside Fakhar.

    Pakistan’s banned opening batsman, Sharjeel Khan has written Pakistan Cricket Board a letter asking for participation in the board’s rehabilitation program.

    However, in return, the PCB has asked a public apology from the tainted cricketer for his involvement in spot-fixing to comply with International Cricket Council’s anti-corruption code of conduct, afterwards, he will be allowed by the board to undergo the rehabilitation program.

    The flamboyant left-handed opening batsman has constantly denied his involvement in these corrupt activities. He will have accept and apologize for his role in the whole saga before undergoing the rehabilitation program.

    Khan will deliver lectures to the budding cricketers, which will help them avoid any sort of involvement in wrongdoings.

    He was banned for five years for his involvement in spot-fixing in Pakistan Super League 2017 while representing Islamabad United along with his teammate Khalid Latif.
