Karachi: The Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) chairman Najam Sethi has assured former captain Saleem Malik that the life ban, which was imposed on him in 2000 for match fixing, will be reviewed.

51-year-old Malik, who was banned for life in 2000 for match fixing, met with the Sethi at the Gaddafi stadium and when he emerged out of the meeting, the former skipper appeared a satisfied man.

"Finally a board chairman has heard my point of view. I have informed Najam Sethi that my ban has been removed by a lower court since 2008 and on this ground, I should be allowed back into the cricket fold as I also want to take part in cricket activities and do something for new players," Malik told reporters.
