Dubai – Pakistan Super League (PSL) players Sharjeel Khan and Khalid Latif on Wednesday denied they are guilty of any wrongdoing in relation to allegations of spot-fixing during the second edition of PSL in Dubai.

Sharjeel, who was in Karachi earlier in the day, said he has not done anything wrong. “I have not done anything wrong. Everything will get clear soon,” he said when approached by journalists.

The suspended Islamabad United player said he has been forbidden by the Pakistan Cricket Board to speak to the media.

Khan, along with Islamabad United teammate Khalid Latif, was provisionally suspended by the PCB during the opening week of the ongoing PSL following an initial inquiry into an alleged attempt by an international syndicate to corrupt Pakistan’s T20 tournament.

Both the players were formally charged by the PCB over alleged spot-fixing under its anti-corruption code last Friday. They were also presented with evidence of spot-fixing, PCB lawyer said.
