BPL side, Shoaib Malik rubbish match-fixing claims

Srinagar: The Bangladesh Premier League (BPL) side Fortune Barisal and Pakistan cricketer Shoaib Malik have denies the match-fixing rumours surrounding the Malik’s early exit from BPL.

Reports from the Bangladesh media said that the suspicions of match-fixing arose when Malik bowled three no-balls in a single over during the match against Khulna Tigers in the BPL.

Malik’s bowled one over in the match, where he conceded 18 runs, with two boundaries and a six. Unfortunately, Barishal ended up losing the match by 8 wickets.

It was circulating on social media that Malik’s contract has been terminated due to match-fixing suspicions.

However. Barishal has dismissed the claims and information from the Bengali media.

“His stance is that Malik was willing to come back and play on February 6, but his proposal was not accepted, leading to the termination of the contract through mutual agreement,” Cricket Pakistan reported.

Cricket Pakistan also quoted Shoaib Malik on the matter who has refuted media reports, stating that he was in Dubai due to pre-arranged personal commitments and wanted to return and play, but the league administration did not agree. The rest of the details are all nonsense.
