PESHAWAR Khyber Pakhtunkhwa Assembly Tuesday called for confiscating property and lifetime ban on cricketers allegedly involved in match-fixing scandal unearthed in Great Britain. Expressing their anger over involvement of some cricketers in match and spot-fixing, the lawmakers were unanimous demanding a complete lifetime ban and confiscating properties of the cricketers allegedly linked in such shameful acts that earned a bad name for the country. The Khyber Pakhtunkhwa Assembly met with Speaker Kiramatullah Khan in the chair, where the issue of the alleged involvement of some players of national cricket team in spot-fixing scandal was raised by PML-N legislator Javed Abbasi through point of order. The mover demanded of Federal Government to probe into spot-fixing incident, and those found guilty be punished sternly. He was backed by the entire House, including lawmakers from PPP, ANP, PML-Q and others. Javed Abbasi said that whole nation especially youngsters had great affection with crickets heroes. But unfortunately, their deeds left the whole nation in a deep shock. It is a matter of great importance, thus, those cricket players who are corrupt and have lust for money must be trailed under article 6 of the Constitution, as they have not only betrayed but also played with countrys prestige. It was a right time for taking a right decision that property of the cricketers having hand in the scam must be confiscated and be diverted to flood victims to mitigate their sufferings, he suggested time and again. On his turn, Khyber Pakhtunkhwa Minister for Sports Syed Aqil Shah came down hard on match-fixing scandal and demanded a strict action against the cricketers allegedly involved in the shameful act. He expressed sorrow and said that players of other counties might be involved in match-fixing, but they fixed match to win it. But unfortunately, Our players do the same to lose match and prefer to earn money by doing so which is regrettable. It is treason, so, it was demanded of President Asif Ali Zardari and Premier Syed Yousaf Raza Gilani to take note of the matter as it involved the countrys prestige. In their respective speeches, other lawmakers demanded registration of cases against players allegedly involved in the scam, adding these players deserved severe treatment so that no other cricketer would dare to resort to such tactics in future.
