 PSL fixing scandal: 'God knows I am innocent,' Khalid Latif says

PSL fixing scandal: \'God knows I am innocent,\' Khalid Latif says

Khalid Latif, who was sent packing Friday evening by the Pakistan Super League (PSL) management after being accused of involvement in a spot-fixing scandal, claimed he was innocent and had done nothing wrong as reporters peppered him with questions on Monday in Karachi.

"God knows that I have done nothing wrong and I am innocent," Latif maintained, refusing to comment on the matter any further.

Latif is one of two Islamabad United players that were sent back home after the Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) provisionally suspended them under its Anti-Corruption Code as part of an ongoing investigation into an international syndicate which is believed to be attempting to corrupt the PSL.

Sharjeel Khan is the other player who has been suspended.

Khan's father talked to media on Saturday, claiming that, “Sharjeel has done nothing wrong, this [allegation] is a misunderstanding.”

“When the PCB investigates the matter further, it will see that Sharjeel is not to blame. I have full faith in God and know that he will be cleared of all charges,” he had added.

PSL Chairman Najam Sethi had issued a statement following the incident saying, "We will not tolerate any form of corrupt activity and as this investigation proceeds we will not hesitate to take further decisive action as appropriate."

He added that the PSL management is working with the anti-corruption units of the PCB and the International Cricket Council (ICC) to root out corruption.

“It would not be appropriate to comment on the specifics of the case, however, this investigation is a clear demonstration of our determination to drive corruption out of our sport," Sethi had said.
