LAHORE: Spot-fixing convict Sharjeel Khan has sought justice from Prime Minister Shahid Khakan Abbasi claiming that injustice has been done to him in his case and he wants a fair trial.
Talking to the reporters here on Tuesday, Sharjeel vowed that he would fight all allegations leveled against him. “I want to meet Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) chairman Najam Sethi so that I may clear myself on all matters,” he said.
Sharjeel accused the PCB anti-corruption unit of being able to take action against anyone they desire. “The Pakistan Cricket Board tribunal is too weak to take action against anyone, they think, they should punish or ban.”
Pakistan’s anti-corruption tribunal had banned opener Sharjeel Khan for five years over a spot-fixing case that has rocked the Pakistan Super League (PSL). The 28-year-old left-handed opener was provisionally suspended along with fellow opener Khalid Latif in February for violating the PCB anti-corruption code. The charges centered on a match between Islamabad United and Peshawar Zalmi in Dubai in February. Off four balls, Sharjeel scored a single, failed to score off two deliveries and was then out.
