The Karachi Kings’ batsman was handed a charge sheet for violating the Pakistan Cricket Board’s anti-corruption code, when he was summoned before the Anti-Corruption Unit (ACU) for the third time earlier today, the sources informed.
The Pakistan cricket Board is set to make a formal announcement regarding the latest development shortly, the sources added.
Shahzaib and fast bowler Mohammad Irfan were both summoned by the Anti-corruption unit earlier this week, as the board furthered its investigation into alleged attempts by an international fixing syndicate to corrupt the PSL second edition.
Irfan was formally charged and provisionally suspended by the Pakistan Cricket Board from all forms of cricket for violating its anti-corruption code, after the pacer admitted he had been contacted by bookies during the tournament but had failed to report the approach to the board.
On Thursday, the Federal Investigation Agency sent notices to cricketers Sharjeel Khan, Nasir Jamshed, Khalid Latif and Muhammad Irfan for their alleged role in spot fixing during PSL 2017.
