Latif receives relief on PSL2 spot-fixing punishment

KARACHI: The Independent Adjudicator on Wednesday announced a decision on the appeal made by Khalid Latif in which he requested waiving off the five-year ban and Rs1 million fine.

The former Islamabad United opener was punished for taking part in the spot-fixing scandal during the second edition of the Pakistan Super League (PSL).

The Karachi-born will serve the stipulated five-year ban, however, he received a relief on the Rs1m fine, which was waived in the wake of the decision.

The 32-year-old faced troubled times during the hearing of the case where his lawyer, on numerous occasions, criticised the Anti-Corruption Tribunal formed by the Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB).

Latif represented Pakistan in five ODIs and 13 T20Is, where he collectively scored 384 runs, courtesy two half centuries.
