Another Pakistan Cricketer founds himself in Spot Fixing Scandal

Did Leading Pakistan Fast Bowler Mohammad Sami also Involved in Spot Fixing? The Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) has questioned veteran pacer Mohammad Sami over his alleged involvement in a spot-fixing scandal in the Bangladesh Premier League (BPL).

It seems that Pakistan is trying its level best to be center hub of spot-fixing business. Another Pak cricketer is now rumored to be involved in the spot-fixing scandal. This time it is former pacer Mohammad Sami. The Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) has questioned veteran pacer Mohammad Sami over his alleged involvement in a spot-fixing scandal in the ongoing Bangladesh Premier League (BPL).

Mohammad Sami is representing Rajshahi Kings in the tournament, where he is currently the franchise’s most successful bowler with 11 wickets in nine games at an impressive average of 21.36 with strike-rate of 25.2

Mohammad Sami set to Return due to Spot Fixing?

A board official confirmed to The Express Tribune on Friday that the 36-year-old has been asked to return and report to the PCB headquarter for further investigations. However, no further action is taken against the pacer yet.

Mohammad Sami is free to continue playing cricket and is set to feature in the upcoming T10 league as well. Sami has not played for Pakistan since 2016 World T20 and is now limited to playing in domestic cricket and T20 leagues.

The Karachi-born pacer has represented Pakistan in 36 Tests, 87 ODIs, and 13 T20Is, where he claimed 227 wickets.  If proven, the development will be a major blow for Pakistan Super League (PSL) franchise Islamabad United, who will lose their third player after Sharjeel Khan and Khalid Latif in two seasons for their alleged involvement in suspicious activities.
