Former Pakistan captain Javed Miandad demanded a very strict rule against the players accused of the match-fixing saga. He wants a death penalty for such players, who have been involved in such a shameful act. Miandad feels this should be done to prevent good talents.
He said, “Authorities must take measures to stop this (corruption in Cricket). Why don’t you take strong measures? You should give death penalty to such people.”
Since the start of this season of PSL, five players have been suspended after admitting spot-fixing involvement. It was started with Sharjeel Khan and Khalid Latif, who were removed from the teams of their franchise as well, followed by seven feet tall bowler Mohammad Irfan.
Latest names in this list are batsmen Nasir Jamshed and Shahzaib Hasan, who also received a suspension after admitting that they got offers from bookie during PSL 2.
Miandad also added “There is a problem that we do not have the courage to call a spade a spade. Everyone is running after money and in such a scenario, what can you do?”
The 59-year-old seems to be very unhappy after hearing so much about this fixing scandal in such a short time. However, he praised the efforts made by PCB ACU against all guilty players.
