PCB also had got phone conversation and whatsapp data as legal evidence however Sharjeel Khan and Khalid Latif both denied the call & messages data.
Sharjeel Khan and Kahlid Latif are accused of spot fixing case and the verdict against them is to be yet announced. Nasir Jamshed, Muhammad Irfan, Muhammad Nawaz and Shahzeb Khan are already summoned by PCB anti corruption unit.
Iran and Nawaz were only accused of not reporting to PCB thus faced less punishment of one year while Sharjeel Khan and Kahlid Latif who did not accept the accusations and contesting the case may face life bans.
Both players were uncomfortable with the way PCB is conducting the case and Kahlid Latif did not come to hearing on many dates. Khalid Latif earlier said that PCB is not cooperating with him and they had boycotted the hearings on many occasions. PCB also added these player names in exit control list so these players could not leave the country.
In recent years PCB is having lot tough on the corruption in the Pakistan cricket with strict laws and no concession to any player of any caliber or experience.
