ANSWER: All of the above
Irfan suspended by PCBPakistan Cricket Board (PCB) has suspended left-arm pacer Mohammad Irfan in the spot-fixing case which came to light during the recently concluded Pakistan Super League.

Irfan and two other cricketers were interrogated by the PCB's anti-corruption unit for the PSL.

The other two players were left-arm spinner Zulfiqar Babar (Quetta Gladiators) and opening batsman Shazaib Hassan (Karachi Kings).

Irfan has been charged with failing to disclose to the PCB Vigilance and Security Department (without unnecessary delay) full details of any approaches or invitations received by a participant to engage in corrupt conduct.

He now has 14 days to respond to the charges.

During the tournament, Islamabad United's batsmen Sharjeel Khan and Khalid Latif were provisionally suspended and ordered to return home.

Meanwhile, in February, Pakistan's opening batsman Nasir Jamshed was arrested by Britain's National Crime Agency in connection with the alleged spot-fixing case.

This is not the first time corruption has haunted Pakistan cricket in the recent past.

In 2010, Salman Butt, Mohammad Amir and Mohammad Asif were jailed and banned over their involvement in the spot-fixing case during the Lord's Test against England.
