Pakistan Cricket Board has banned batsman Khalid Latif from all forms of cricket for 5 years for his role in the spot-fixing scandal that marred the 2017 Pakistan Super League.

Latif has played 5 ODI’s and 8 T/20s since making his international debut in 2008.

Latif, playing for Islamabad United, was charged with six major breaches of the PCB's anti-corruption code and was found guilty of all six today (20).

He was also fined 1 million Pakistan Rupees (USD 9489 approximately).

Unlike Sharjeel Khan, who was banned for 5 years on August 30 for spot-fixing charges emanating from the same match at the PSL, none of Latif's sentence is suspended, meaning the 31-year old cannot return to cricket till at least 2022.

It is the harshest punishment meted out so far to a player involved in the PSL spot-fixing saga.

Mohammad Irfan and Mohammad Nawaz were also banned, for the relatively lesser indiscretions of failure to report corrupt approaches. Both have since returned to domestic cricket.
