Five Pakistani cricketers charged with breaking anti-corruption code

The five Pakistani cricketers who were charged with breaking the Pakistan Cricket Board anti-corruption code have been barred from leaving the country.

Sharjeel Khan, Khalid Latif, Nasir Jamshed, Mohammad Irfan and Shahzaib Hasan were all charged in relation to allegations of spot-fixing during the recent Pakistan Super League (PSL). Jamshed, 27, is still in Britain, following his arrest by the National Crime Agency in February. The batsman was bailed until April pending further inquiries.

Batsmen Sharjeel, 27, and Latif, 31, are contesting the charges against them and have been instructed by the PCB to attend a preliminary hearing in front of a three-member tribunal in Lahore on Friday.

Latif and 34-year-old pace bowler Irfan gave statements to the federal investigation authority in Lahore on Monday, while Sharjeel and 27-year-old batsman Shahzaib are due to give statements on Tuesday.
