The Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) has taken stringent action against those players who were found guilty in spot-fixing during the Pakistan Super League Twenty20 league. Sherjeel Khan, Khalid Latif and Shah Jab Hassan are already suspended by Pakistan Cricket Board.
On Friday, PCB imposed the 10-year ban on batsman Nasir Jamshed for his part in the spot-fixing scandal. According to Dawn report, left-handed batsman Nasir Jamshed cannot play in any format of cricket for next 10 years. The Pakistan Cricket Board already made it clear that they will not tolerate those players who will spoil the sport’s reputation. As a result, left-handed batsman Jamshed has been severely punished.
Nasir Jamshed represented Pakistan in 2 Tests, 48 One-Day Internationals and 18 T20 Internationals so far. Nasir has scored three centuries in ODI against India. Jamshed has been convicted for the second time in the last two years. Earlier, in December last year, Jamshed was banned for one year to not properly cooperate in the 2017 PSL spot fixing case.
- PCB legal adviser Taffazul Rizvi said: “The tribunal has reached the verdict that the PCB’s multiple charges against Nasir Jamshed have been proved and he was banned for 10 years.”
