Five-year ban for Pakistan batsman Sharjeel

Updated: 

Pakistan batsman Sharjeel Khan has been banned for five years from all forms of cricket for his part in a Pakistan Super League spot-fixing scandal.

Sharjeel and fellow Pakistan international Khalid Latif were provisionally suspended in February amid a Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) probe into alleged corruption.

Opener Sharjeel, who has played one Test and 40 limited-overs matches for his country, was banned for five years - half of which has been suspended - at a tribunal hearing on Wednesday.
