PCB bans Latif for five years

The 31-year-old Latif played for Islamabad United during the tournament and was also fined 1 million Pakistan Rupees for his involvement in the scandal and he cannot partake in cricket related activities until 2022.
He is the third player to be sanctioned with another international Sharjeel Khan also banned for five years although he had two-and-a-half years of the five suspended.
Mohammad Irfan and Mohammad Nawaz were also banned for lesser offences and are already back playing in domestic cricket.
