  • Nasir Jamshed banned after Pakistan Super League spot-fixing scandal

The Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) on Friday banned Nasir Jamshed for 10 years in its spot-fixing probe against the former batsman.

Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) is coming down heavily at the cricketers who have been found guilty in the spot-fixing scandal in their T20 league. In December, Jamshed was handed a one-year ban for failing to co-operate with the anti-corruption unit's investigation.

Spot-fixing refers to illegal activity in a sport where a specific part of a game is fixed, unlike match-fixing, where the whole result is fixed.

Jamshed, who received a 12-month ban a year ago for not cooperating in the investigation, received new sentence on five other offences in a verdict which was announced on Friday.

Previously, Sharjeel Khan, Khalid Latif, Mohammad Nawaz, Mohammad Irfan and Shahzaib Hasan were all fined and banned on separate charges.

Jamshed, who made his global debut in 2008, has represented the Men in Green in two Tests, 48 ODIs and 18 T20Is, where he collectively scored 1,832 runs with the help of three centuries and 10 half-centuries. He hit three consecutive one-day hundreds against India in 2012.
