Pakistan fast bowler Mohammad Irfan has been banned for a year by the Pakistan Cricket Board for twice failing to report approaches by bookmakers linked to spot-fixing.
The 7ft 1in bowler was one of three players suspended following an anti-corruption investigation focused on the Pakistan Super League. Six months of the ban will be suspended if Irfan, 34, fulfils certain conditions imposed on him.
He last played for Pakistan in 2016. In February, the PCB announced it was investigating “an international syndicate which is believed to be attempting to corrupt the PSL”(BBC,2017).
