Lahore: A Pakistani court has dismissed former captain Salim Malik's challenge against a life ban imposed by the Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) over match-fixing allegations, officials said on Monday."Malik has no cause of action against the PCB as the fine and life ban from playing international as well as domestic cricket was validly imposed," a PCB press release said quoting Lahore-based civil judge Muhammad Azam.PCB took action against Malik in May last year after Lahore High court Judge Malik Mohammad Qayyum recommended a life ban following a year-long inquiry on match fixing. Malik was also fined one million rupees (around $ 20,000).Seven other players - current Pakistan captain Waqar Younis, Wasim Akram, Inzamam-ul-Haq, Mushtaq Ahmed, Akram Raza, Saeed Anwar and Mushtaq Ahmed - were fined while pacer Attaur Rehman was also banned for life.Malik, who filed a case challenging PCB decision in September last year and was granted a stay against the ban, was not immediately available for comments.Australian trio Shane Warne, Tim May and Mark Waugh first accused Malik of offering them bribes to under perform during the Australian tour of Pakistan in 1994.Malik's name also featured in India's Crime Bureau of Investigation (CBI) report on match-fixing released in November last year. Besides Malik, two other former captains - South African Hansie Cronje and Mohammad Azharuddin of India - are serving life bans on match fixing charges.
