What Shahid Afridi has to say about spot fixing

Pakistan Cricket star Shahid Afridi said that spot-fixing in Pakistan cricket would continue until Pakistan Cricket Board set an example by banning such players.

“These things will continue unless we make an example out of them (players involved in corruption). Ban cricket for them forever. Don’t even let them play domestic cricket. Only then you can stop such incidents”, Afridi said.

Star all-rounder said that the players know that even if they get caught, they will only have to undergo a five-year ban and then they can continue with their cricket.

Afridi further said that the player that were previously involved in spot-fixing were on the verge of making a comeback to the national squad, adding that certain people were trying to get them a place in the team.

PCB, on Friday, suspended two cricketers — Khalid Latif and Sharjeel Khan — for their alleged links with an international syndicate that attempted to corrupt the Pakistan Super League.

A formal charge sheet is being prepared by the PCB against the two national cricketers for spot-fixing in Pakistan Super League
