The Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) has announced a three-member tribunal for adjudicating the spot-fixing scandal.
The tribunal will be chaired by Justice (Retired) Asghar Haider, and will also consist of the former PCB chairman Lt General (Retired) Tauqir Zia and former team manager Wasim Bari.
PCB said in a press release that the tribunal was constituted after Islamabad United duo Khalid Latif and Sharjeel Khan formally informed the board that they seek to contest charges against them.
Both players were suspended after the first match of the second edition of the Pakistan Super League on spot-fixing charges.
As per the prescribed procedure, the tribunal will now issue notices for a preliminary hearing to both PCB and the players.
Three more players — Mohammad Irfan, Shahzeb Hasan and Nasir Jamshed — have also suspended following further investigation.
