Tainted Pakistan trio to be banned from TV shows

The Standing Senate Committee on inter-provincial coordination (sports) has come up with a suggestion which bars the cricketers, who’ve been found responsible of spot-fixing, from selection in the national squad again and appearing on the cricket talk shows.

A gathering of the board, which was held in Islamabad yesterday, was briefed by PCB chief operating officer, Subhan Ahmed and Director General cricket, Javed Miandad.

“During the briefing that included updates on the appeals of the banned players, Salman Butt and Mohammad Asif, the senators told the PCB official that the disgraced players should also be stopped from appearing on cricket shows,” a board member said.

Butt, Asif and Mohammad Aamer were all 1st banned by the ICC and then locked up by a crown court in London in 2011 for their participation in spot-fixing.
