Pakistan cricketer Latif's 5yr fixing ban

Sep 20, 2017 - 9:25 AM Batsman Khalid Latif has been handed a five-year ban for his role in a spot-fixing scandal during this year's Pakistan Super League.

"Anti Corruption Tribunal has found Khalid Latif guilty of all charges..." the Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) said on Wednesday on Twitter.

The 31-year-old, who has played five one-day internationals, has also been fined one million Pakistani rupees ($A11,794), the PCB added.

Fellow Islamabad United player Sharjeel Khan also was banned last month for five years. Both were sent home from the Twenty20 competition in the United Arab Emirates after an investigation by the board's anti-corruption unit.

At least two other players have been implicated in the scandal. In March, fast bowler Mohammad Irfan was fined and given a one-year ban.
