Suspended cricketer Khalid Latif’s lawyer, Badar Alam, on Friday levelled allegations on the Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) that they are trying to ruin the career of his client by trying to call him again and again for the tribunal meeting.
Latif was suspended by the PCB from all forms of international and domestic cricket following his alleged involvement in match-fixing during the recently-concluded Pakistan Super League (PSL).
“The PCB are trying to ruin the career of my client. They only want to pressurise him into coming up with an agreement with the board,” he said.
Alam further said that Latif’s case is being heard by the Lahore High Court and that the PCB has no right to call him for the tribunal meeting, calling it unlawful.
“The PCB has no proof of Latif’s involvement in match-fixing. The only thing that they have is a video message in which my client has accepted that he did meet the bookie. They do not have any proof that he was involved in fixing,” he said.
Alam also stated that is the PCB insists on calling Latif to the tribunal again and again, then it will be deemed as harassment.
