The Pakistan Super League corruption scandal has continued to haunt the Pakistan cricket as more revelations have surfaced by the foreign agency in  this regard.

A representative of the British National Crime Agency, Andrew Ephgrave, has mentioned two more Pakistan cricketers while giving his statement to the PCB anti-corruption tribunal,” a source privy to matter was quoted as saying Saturday. 

“The PCB is now gathering more evidences related to this matter and will issue notices to these two cricketers after it has enough evidences in hand. These cricketers have remained part of Pakistan team in the past,” the source added.

According to the source, the two players include a fast bowler and a middle order batsman, both of them featured in the second edition of PSL but were not included in Pakistan’s team that won the ICC Champions Trophy. 

The spot fixing scandal surfaced earlier this year when two cricketers Khalid Latif and Sharjeel Khan were sent back from Dubai by the PCB over alleged links with a syndicate that attempted to corrupt the PSL

Following the investigations, names of Nasir Jamshed, Mohammad Irfan, Shahzaib Hassan and Mohammad Nawaz also emerged and the cricketers were summoned by PCB’s anti-corruption unit for investigations.
