LAHORE: Cricketer Shahzaib Hasan was banned for a further four years with the fine of Rs1 million still imposed on him for his role in spot-fixing during the 2017 season of the Pakistan Super League (PSL).
The four-year ban includes the one year the cricketer has already served.
Earlier an anti-corruption tribunal had banned Hasan for one year and fined him Rs 1 million which he had filed an appeal against.
Hasan, who represented Karachi Kings last year, was the fifth player to be suspended in the spot-fixing probe along with Islamabad United openers Khalid Latif and Sharjeel Khan and fast bowler Mohammad Irfan and all-rounder Mohammad Nawaz.
The 27-year-old opener, who has represented Pakistan in three one-day internationals and 10 T20I matches, was suspended on March 17, 2017 and charged with three violations of the Pakistan Cricket Board’s (PCB) anti-corruption code.
The PCB’s anti-corruption unit had charged him for violating three clauses of its anti-corruption code: for luring cricketers into the scam, not reporting approaches by the bookies, and hiding information regarding his contacts with the bookies.
