Match Tied (Royal Challengers Bangalore win one-over eliminator)
Former Pakistani opening batsman Sharjeel Khan had been banned from playing any form of cricket by the Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) after he was found guilty of several offenses of the ICC anti-corruption code during season 2 of the Pakistan Super League (PSL) in 2017.
The batsman’s ban would end on the 10th of August this year after which he would have to go through the compulsory rehabilitation program under the supervision of the PCB. Sharjeel would become eligible to play domestic cricket after the completion of the rehab process.
However, returning to the national side would not be easy for the left-hander as he would have to prove himself worthy of selection with prominent performances in domestic tournaments to get the attention of the selectors.
Fans have been looking forward to the left-hander’s return to Pakistan side, but Sharjeel’s fitness would eventually decide his future at the highest level since the PCB has taken strict measures to improve standards of international cricketers in recent past.
