On Minday, fast bowler Mohammad Irfan has admitted that he had contacts with bookies but he did not inform Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) as he was under mental stress.
Irfan recorded his video message before the PCB’s ACU in relation to the board’s investigation into alleged corruption in the second edition of the Pakistan Super League (PSL).
According to the fast bowler, he was mentally upset due to the illness of his parents so he could not inform the board about the bookies who had made contacts with him for match-fixing.
Shahzaib Hasan, another player who was also called in, along with Irfan, for questioning by the PCB will appear before the ACU tomorrow.
Two players, Khalid Latif and Sharjeel Khan were already charged by PCB for attempting to spot-fix a match, among other code-of-conduct breaches. The PCB has established a three-member tribunal to hear their cases later this month.
