Saleem Malik’s continuous journey to be reintegrated into Pakistan cricket has been pushed back indeed by the PCB. The board trusts Malik hasn’t again reacted agreeably to the substance of a discussion 20 years back in which he discussed fixing cricket matches. While Malik demands he had presented a reaction a month ago to the board with respect to a sting activity by an English newspaper 20 years back, the PCB doesn’t accept his reaction fittingly addresses the issue. After the Qayyum report was discharged in 2000 – in which Malik was restricted forever – the now-outdated paper Updates on the World discharged a video in which Malik was supposedly discovered contribution to possibly degenerate players and games in return for cash. 

The correspondent associated with the sting – Mazher Mahmood – was equivalent to the one that did the 2010 Ruler’s spot-fixing activity. The disclosures and charges emerging from the sting were not part of the Equity Qayyum request; that request occurred in the year prior to this story and the report had been made open days before the sting. While Malik stayed out of the overlay for various years, he has as of late spoke to the PCB to reintegrate him, and made himself accessible for training or tutoring jobs. The PCB, in any case, stay determined that won’t be conceivable until Malik has considerably managed the inquiries that the sting raised.

Malik was fined Rs 1 million and restricted for life in 2000, however after eight years his sentence was toppled by a Lahore meetings court, permitting him hypothetically to come back to the overlap.
