Corruption Surrounds Pakistani Super League As Chairman Tells Everyone To Calm Down
He told players to get on with the game
Chairman of the Pakistani Super League (PSL), Najam Sethi has tweeted for players to get on with the game, and relax, following the suspension of two players; Khalid Latif and Sharjeel Khan over match-fixing scandals.
The two allegedly made arrangements to accept bribes of AED14,000-17,000 per game.
Investigations have been on-going, but Sethi told players to get on with the game.
Sethi tweeted in response to the scandal
PSL has zero tolerance for practices that corrupt or damage the game. No one big or small is exempt. We shall protect this asset of Pak.— Najam Sethi (@najamsethi) February 10, 2017
It is expected the two Islamabad players will receive a result from the Pakistan Cricket Board in the next 15 days.
It's not expected that any other players will be suspended.

He also said there is no need for more speculation
The league is played in the UAE, for security reasons.
