Lahore (29th Oct, 2019): The Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) has allowed tainted batsman Sharjeel Khan to play club cricket.
This step could be a massive improvement towards his eventual induction into the national team.
Earlier, Tainted international cricketer Sharjeel Khan, who was suspended from playing every kind of cricket in a spot-fixing case in Pakistan Supper League 2018, has offered unconditional apology to the Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB), team-mates, fans and family.
Sharjeel Khan was suspended from national and international cricket for five years by the Pakistan Cricket Board in 2017 along with Khalid Latif and Nasir Jamshed in a spot-fixing case which erupted on the very first day of the second edition of the Pakistan Super League’s (PSL).
After completing half of the period of ban of five years, Sharjeel Khan was allowed to re-enter into competitive cricket after undergoing half of his ban period and that he wil go through a thorough rehabilitation process made by Pakistan Cricket Board.
Once that is out of the way, Sharjeel Khan name could be added to the pool of Pakistan Super League (PSL) players.
Based on his performances in the PSL, he could even be considered for the tour of the Netherlands, Ireland and England in the summer of 2020. However, it is unlikely that he would be allowed to play in domestic cricket in the ongoing season.
