The opener was formally charged with six breaches of the Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) anti-corruption code in March after being suspended a month earlier.

Latif pleaded not guilty, but an Anti-Corruption Tribunal on Wednesday found the 31-year-old guilty of all charges.

As well as being given a lengthy ban, Latif was also fined a million Pakistan Rupees.

Latif, who has played 13 Twenty20 matches and five one-day internationals for his country, was charged with breaches relating to spot-fixing and failing to report approaches or invitations made to him with a view to engaging in corrupt conduct in the 2017 PSL.

Sharjeel Khan, Latif's Islamabad United team-mate, was also banned for five years last month, but half of the batsman's ban was suspended.

Pakistan paceman Mohammad Irfan was banned for a year after pleading guilty to two breaches of the PCB's anti-corruption code, while spinner Mohammad Nawaz was suspended for two months as part of the inquiry.
