Pakistani cricketer who beat his wife with his bat, forced her to drink bleach and called her friends ‘English slag girls’ is SPARED jail

Judge said he didn’t believe victim, Fakhara Karim, 33, was a vulnerable person

Mustafa Bashir, 34… is set to join a top British club after being spared jail…. During another furious attack, he held Fakhara Karim, 33, by the neck, poured bleach down her throat and forced her to take tablets while ordering her to kill herself.

…His defence solicitor claimed that he would join former county champions Leicestershire as a professional player after being offered a contract just before his arrest, on the condition that he was not jailed.

However, the club deny having any links to him, saying today they were ‘bemused’ by the claims.
