Four of the five Pakistan international cricketers being investigated over spot-fixing allegations have been banned from leaving the country.

Sharjeel Khan, Khalid Latif, Nasir Jamshed, Mohammad Irfan and Shazaib Hasan have all been provisionally suspended after being charged with breaching the Pakistan Cricket Board’s (PCB) anti-corruption code.

It follows spot-fixing allegations surrounding matches in the Pakistan Super League (PSL), a domestic Twenty20 competition.

According to ESPN Cricinfo, four of the players – Khan, Latif, Irfan and Hasan – have been put on an exit control list after the nation’s Federal Investigation Agency (FIA) launched their own investigation.

Jamshed is currently in Great Britain where he and an unnamed person were arrested and questioned about the allegations before being bailed.

At present, the two countries do not have a treaty which allows Pakistan to request Jamshed’s return to the country so he can be questioned there.

Latif and Irfan are said to have visited the FIA offices yesterday to give statements.

It has been confirmed by the PCB that preliminary hearings for Khan and Latif, who both deny the charges, will be held on Friday (March 24) in front of the organisation’s anti-corruption tribunal.
