The Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) has given its verdict on Nasir Jamshed’s case and the former batsman has been banned for 10 years in the spot-fixing probe.
The allegations against the opening batsman came to light during 2017’s edition of Pakistan Super League (PSL) and on Friday, PCB’s anti-corruption tribunal declared that Nasir Jamshed is guilty of violating its anti-corruption code of conduct.
Nasir Jamshed was found violating Articles 2.1.1, 2.1.2, 2.1.3, 2.1.4 and 2.4.4 of the anti-corruption code of conduct, an official from PCB’s anti-corruption tribunal claimed.
This ban is in addition to the one-year ban Jamshed is already serving for obstructing and non-cooperation with the PCB over the spot-fixing investigation which he received last year.
It is worth mentioning that soon after 2017 PSL was wrapped up, Nasir Jamshed made a public statement claiming that he is innocent and there’s a propaganda to force him out of the team.
This verdict, however, states the opposite. The strict action from PCB is completely justified as it would teach other young players to stay clear of spot-fixing as well.
In addition to the 10 year ban, Jamshed has also been banned from any role in cricket management for life.
