LAHORE: On Monday, the Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) encountered Sharjeel Khan and decided to re-enter the competitive cricket with him.
Sharjeel Khan will finish rehabilitation intended by the Security and Anti-Corruption Department of the board before the end of the year, according to a PCB declaration, and will then be reintegrated into top-level cricket.
Part of the rehabilitation will include attendance and lecture by Sharjeel Khan on the PCB Anti-Corruption Code, orphanage visits as part of social service, and participation in inclusion meetings with Pakistan’s cricket team players and player support staff.
Sharjeel Khan has experienced a two-and-a-half-year ineligibility period for violating the PCB’s Anti-Corruption Conduct regulations.
“I remind all cricketers to strictly and religiously follow the PCB Anti-Corruption Code as breaching it will only earn momentary gains but the consequences will be severe and last for the rest of the career. I have agreed on the future course of action with the PCB, including helping it in its education sessions on anti-corruption,” said Sharjeel Khan.
Sharjeel Khan added that he would soon return to the club cricket but would not rush into domestic cricket as he had been away from the game for almost 30 months and needed time to reclaim fitness and shape.
