Pakistan cricket’s anti-corruption tribunal on Wednesday (September 20) banned Khalid Latif for five years and fined him one million rupees ($9,489) over a spot-fixing case, the second casualty after Sharjeel Khan was banned late last month.
“Latif is banned for five years and fined one million rupees after the proceedings of the case,” the three-member tribunal announced.
Latif, the 31-year-old opening batsman, has played five One-Day Internationals and 13 T20 Internationals, the last of which was against Windies in Abu Dhabi in September 2016.
In August, Sharjeel was banned for five years, with two-and-a-half years suspended, for his role in the spot-fixing scandal.
