Khalid Latif and Shahzaib Hasan could potentially be slapped with additional charges in relation to the ongoing Pakistan Super League (PSL) corruption investigation.

It is understood that the Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) have found new information and as a result, they have issued fresh notices against the duo.

Latif and Shahzaib, who have been provisionally suspended, will now have to appear before the PCB’s Security and Vigilance Department on April 26 and 27 respectively.

“In furtherance of its fight against corruption in the game of cricket the Pakistan Cricket Board’s Security and Vigilance Department has today issued fresh Notices of Demand to Cricketers Khalid Latif and Shahzaib Hassan,” the PCB said in a statement. “These Notices of Demand have been issued under Article 4.3 of the PCB Anti-Corruption Code and require both Cricketers to appear before the PCB Security and Vigilance Department for interviews relating to investigations into possible further breaches of the PCB Anti-Corruption Code.”

Latif has already been charged for six breaches of the PCB’s anti-corruption code and since he challenged the charges against him, he will have to appear before a three-man tribunal on May 5.

But, with the new information having popped up, he will also be present on April 26.

As for Shahzaib, he had been charged with three breaches and is scheduled to appear before the tribunal on April 21. Like Latif, he will have to do so once again, but only on April 27.
