Pakistan fast bowler Mohammad Irfan suspended for a year by PCB
30 March 2017 Current Affairs: The Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) has suspended Mohammad Irfan for a year and also fined the tall fast bowler one million rupees ($9,500) for violating the sport's anti-corruption code during the Pakistan Super League T20.

The 34-year-old, Irfan failed twice to report approaches by bookmakers linked to spot-fixing.

Irfan made headlines for his extraordinary height -- seven feet and one inch or 216 centimetres -- when he made his international debut in 2010 and stands as the tallest-ever player to feature in world cricket.
