Salim Malik had a sting operation against him in England conducted by a reporter and was banned for life in 2000, by PCB after an enquiry found him guilty.

Malik’s match fixing saga had its roots in Shane Warne’s and Tim May’s claims in 1994, when He was Captain of Pakistan cricket team.

During a home series against Australia, Warne realised about Malik’s match fixing circling Pakistan cricket, when he and Mark Waugh, were,directly offered a huge sum of money to throw a test match in Pakistan’s favour by underperforming.

Warne refused to take the money .Malik and Warne were later investigated for their roles in context of that match and the former was held responsible for the same.

Malik was banned for life by PCB on recommendations of a judicial enquiry conducted by justice Malik Mohammed Qayyum which found him guilty.

The findings recommended a life ban for Malik ,and fines for Wasim Akram,Inzamam ul Haq,and Waqar Younis. Malik later challenged his punishment in court and the ban was lifted in 2008.

Malik then approached PCB as he wanted to actively get involved in cricket again ,but the PCB sent him a questionnaire and said it needed Malik to clarify certain issues.

Malik after submitting his reply said ‘I would say the script they sent me (questionnaire) is total lies ,but I have given them a detailed reply in 15 days and hope they do the same now because I want this chapter to end once and for all.’
