Justice Chauhan also heard the case of Pakistani batsman Umar Akmal who was banned for not giving information about corrupt offers for spot fixing during Pakistan Super League.
In 2000, Salim was banned for life for match fixing. Australian cricketer Shane Warne, Mark Waugh, accused Malik of offering him a bribe on the 1995 Pakistan tour. By the way, in 2008, the lower and sessions court had removed his life ban from him but the Pakistan Board has not removed him.
Please tell that Salim has also led the Pakistani cricket team. The right-handed middle-order batsman primarily played the role of a wicket-keeper. Apart from this, his hanging bowling was also considered very effective. Despite playing more than 100 Tests due to lifetime ban for match fixing, it remained low in the history of cricket.
Salim Malik has led Pakistan in 12 Tests, winning 7 matches, while in ODIs, he has led his country 34 times and has won 21 matches.
