He apologized for his irresponsible conduct, which had brought shame to everyone.

"I request for forgiveness and assure I will show more responsibility in my future actions," said Sharjeel in his statement.


Sharjeel warned fellow cricketers as well

In his statement, Sharjeel also warned his fellow cricketers that breaching PCB's Anti-Corruption conduct might help them in short-term, but the consequences would be harsh and could last a lifetime.

"I have agreed on the future course of action with the board, including helping it in its education sessions on anti-corruption," he added.

In 2017, following an investigation, Sharjeel was found guilty of being involved in a spot-fixing case in the Pakistan Super League, playing for Islamabad United.

As a result, the Pakistani board had initially banned him for five years from all forms of cricket.

However, the board later decided that half of his ban would remain suspended for the time being.

"Sharjeel has completed two and a half years of ineligibility"

"Sharjeel has completed his two and a half years of ineligibility and will now complete rehabilitation before the end of the year and then reintegrate into top-level cricket," added the PCB's statement.

"I hope this serves as a reminder to all those who think they can get away with violating rules, as the board is vigilant and committed to eliminate the menace," added Mahmood.
