Pak­istan crick­eters Khalid Latif and Shar­jeel Khan were on Fri­day pro­vi­sion­ally sus­pended by the PCB on cor­rup­tion charges and sent back home from Dubai, where they were com­pet­ing in the Pak­istan Su­per League T20. The Pak­istan Cricket Board (PCB) said that the two play­ers had been sus­pended as part of an on­go­ing in­ves­ti­ga­tion into an in­ter­na­tional syn­di­cate which is be­lieved to be at­tempt­ing to cor­rupt the PSL which kicked off Thurs­day. Opener, Shar­jeel re­cently toured New Zealand and Aus­tralia with the Pak­istan team and is the only player to have scored a cen­tury in the PSL elim­i­na­tor last year. Both the play­ers were rep­re­sent­ing de­fend­ing cham­pi­ons, Islamabad United in the on­go­ing PSL.
