Cricketer Shahzaib Hasan is likely to face suspension as investigations continue into the Pakistan Super League (PSL) spot-fixing scandal, a media outlet reported on Wednesday.
According to the report, Shahzaib, who was questioned during the second edition of PSL last month, might be charged by the Pakistan Cricket Board when he appears before the Anti-Corruption Unit (ACU) on Wednesday.
The report said that batsman Nasir Jamshed has also been contacted by the PCB’s ACU for investigation.
On Tuesday, fast bowler Mohammad Irfan was formally charged and provisionally suspended by the PCB for violating the anti-corruption code.
Two other cricketers, Sharjeel Khan and Khalid Latif, were formally charged by the PCB last month. They were suspended by the PCB after an initial inquiry into an alleged attempt by an international syndicate to corrupt the PSL. Both cricketers have denied all charges framed against them by the PCB except one allegation. In response to the charge sheet, the two cricketers only admitted to a disciplinary violation and not spot-fixing.
