Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) lawyer Taffazul Rizvi has revealed that the board seized bat grips given to batsman Khalid Latif by a bookmaker to indicate he would be spot-fixing.
Latif, who is believed to be one of the main culprits involved in the Pakistan Super League (PSL) corruption scandal, faces a number of significant charges, including attempting to spot-fix, accepting an offer by a bookie, which he failed to report, and attempting to lure other players into illegal activities.
Should he be found guilty, Latif, who has been provisionally suspended by the PCB, could be banned for five years to life.
“One (piece) of evidence is that we seized the bat grips that (a) bookie had given and they were seized from Khalid’s kit bag,” Rizvi told reporters.
Like Latif, Sharjeel Khan, Shahzaib Hasan and Nasir Jamshed have also been provisionally suspended and face a host of serious charges.
