Sharjeel Khan accepted his Mistake and Apologize to PCB
The Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) met cricketer Sharjeel Khan on Monday and agreed with him on the timetable for his return to cricket. Sharjeel Khan banned for two-and-a-half years for violating the rules of the PCB Anti-Corruption Conduct.
It has been agreed that Sharjeel will complete the rehabilitation planned by the PCB’s Security and Anti-Corruption Division before the end of the year and then reintegrate into cricket at the highest level.
Rehabilitation includes, but is not only, participation in and lectures on the PCB Anti-Corruption Code, visits to orphanages as part of the social service, and participation in integration meetings with Pakistan’s cricket team players and staff player support.
Sharjeel Khan said that:
I apologies unconditionally to the Pakistan Cricket Board PCB, my teammates, fans, and my family for the irresponsible behavior that embarrassed everyone. I ask for forgiveness and assure that I will show more responsibility in my future actions. Pakistan Cricket Board PCB, including assistance in their anti-corruption training sessions.
Sharjeel also said that:
I’m going to return to club cricket soon, but I’m not going to go into domestic cricket because I’m almost 30 months away and need time to regain my fitness and form.
Lieutenant Colonel Asif Mahmood, Director of PCB Security and Anti-Corruption said that we met Sharjeel today in which he expressed remorse and regret for his actions.
The PCB is never proud to punish its players, but it takes a non-negotiable and tolerance-free approach to corruption issues.
