Pakistan players Sharjeel Khan and Khalid Latif have been provisionally suspended as part of a corruption investigation, the Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) has announced. 

Both players have been stood down from playing in the Pakistan Super League (PSL) as part of an investigation under the PCB's anti-corruption code.

The investigation is into alleged attempts to corrupt the PSL, which started in Dubai on Thursday.

Khan has played one Test match for his country, along with 25 one-day internationals and 15 Twenty20 internationals, while Latif has represented Pakistan in five ODIs and 13 T20s.

PSL chairman Najam Sethi said: "It would not be appropriate to comment on the specifics of the case, however this investigation is a clear demonstration of our determination to drive corruption out of our sports.

"We will not tolerate any form of corrupt activity and as this investigation proceeds we will not hesitate to take further decisive action as appropriate.

"The investigation of the PCB anti-corruption unit backed by the ICC Anti-Corruption Unit has been effective in dealing with this case to date and we will continue to work in the closest collaboration as the investigation proceeds.

"We are all absolutely committed to relentlessly pursuing anyone who would seek to damage the integrity of our sports."
