LAHORE: Disgraced cricketer Shahzaib Hasan, who was banned for one year for his involvement in a spot-fixing case of Pakistan Super League in 2017, got another three years of similar punishment in a verdict of an appeal he had filed against his one-year ban.
“An independent adjudicator, headed by Justice (retd) Hamid Hasan, on Friday increased the ban to four years and maintained one million rupees fine on Shahzaib in connection with a spot-fixing probe,” said a spokesman for Pakistan Cricket Board here.
Pakistan Cricket Board’s anti-corruption tribunal banned cricketer Shahzaib for one year and fined him Rs1 million for his role in spot-fixing during the second edition of the Pakistan Super League (PSL) in United Arab Emirates (UAE).
Shahzaib, who represented Pakistan in three one-day internationals and 10 T20 matches, is the sixth player who has been punished in the spot-fixing scandal that rocked the PSL last year.
Sharjeel Khan and Khalid Latif also banned for five years.
