Pakistan Cricket Board on Monday suspended left arm spinner Asif Afridi under its anti-corruption code, which also means he does not report corruption. Under Section 4.71 of the PCB Anti-Corruption Code, the Khyber Pakhtunkhwa spinner is not allowed to participate in any cricketing activity until the conclusion of the case currently under the PCB’s Anti-Corruption Unit. In an official statement, PCB stated: “On 12 September 2022, the Pakistan Cricket Council provisionally suspended Khyber Pakhtunkhwa’s left arm spinner Asif Afridi with immediate effect under Article 4.7.1 of the PCB Anti-Corruption Code, which means that he cannot participate in any cricket-related activities, pending the conclusion of the investigation being conducted by PCB’s Anti-Corruption Unit.”

“Asif Afridi has been charged today for two violations of Article 2.4 of the Code and has fourteen (14) days to respond to the charges,” the PCB added.

Asif played his last match on August 31 against Central Punjab in Rawalpindi in the National T20 Cup. In that match, he scored one run and scalped two wickets for 24 runs.

He had also been called up from the national side for the home series against Australia but was not included in the Playing XI.

In PSL 2022, he scalped eight wickets in five games for Multan Sultans after being named to replace Mohammad Nawaz.
