The duo has been suspended under the PCB's Anti-Corruption Code, and the International Cricket Council is supporting it. The PCB and ICC believe that these measures will protect the integrity of the sport, and the investigation in this regard is now on the way.

More details on the charges faced by these cricketers are yet to be revealed. However, it has been learned from undisclosed sources that the duo is reportedly linked in a spot-fixing scandal, an illegal betting way which has been gulping the reputation of the Pakistan Cricketing fraternity for the past two decades.

On the other hand, Khalid Latif has played 13 T20s and five ODIs for the Pakistan team.

Both suspended from Pakistan Super League

Pakistan Super League Chairman, Najam Sethi told that it is not at all wise to comment more details about the case now, but the investigation carried out by the board clearly indicates its determination to expel corruption out of the sport.

Najam also added that the Pakistan Cricket Board would not tolerate any kind of corrupted activities, and he indicated that appropriate decisions would be taken if these cricketers are found to be guilty in the case.

This is not the first time that Pakistani players are getting trapped in the clutches of the match-fixing mafia.

Earlier, in 2000, Pakistan former captain Salim Malik was banned for a lifetime as he tried to tempt Australian cricketers Shane Warne, Mark Waugh and Tim May to take a bribe to underperform during a tour in 1995.
