Nasir Jamshed Handed 10 Years Ban By PCB

Pakistan Cricket Board banned Nasir Jamshed for ten years on spot-fixing charges. The anti-corruption tribunal of PCB handed a ban of 10 years on account of spot-fixing charges that struck the Pakistan Super League in 2017. He was handed a ban of one year earlier for not cooperating for the interrogation or hearing by the PCB.


He played two test matches, 18 T20Is, and 48 ODIs in his career and slammed 1832 runs. He was found guilty of breaching five codes of conduct of ICC. He is charged with breaking rules of the anti-corruption code.

The PCB’s legal advisor Taffazul Rizvi said that Jamshed is the “linchpin” for the entire scandal.

Rizvi said to the reporters that “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,”

“He will not be allowed to be involved with cricket or cricket administration even after his period of the ban is over.”

“PSL 2017′s fixing trial has concluded,”

“There are a few cases you really don’t rejoice after winning; instead you feel sad about it because it ends with another career destroyed. It’s painful to see a player who didn’t have his conduct right and didn’t fulfill his responsibilities according to the anti-corruption code of conduct. Our stance from the first day as he was the linchpin and he is the one who recruited players.

“Our point was proved and accepted by the tribunal, and they found him guilty on multiple charges. Even if he returns after rehabilitation, he is not allowed to engage in any cricket management role and will be kept him away from cricket. We also suggested his name be added in a list of persons mentioned in anti-corruption lectures who are to be avoided by the players. So this all ends here.”

In addition, the PCB anti-corruption tribunal added the sentences to Mohammed Irfan, Mohammed Nawaz, for two months and 12 months respectively and Sharjeel Khan Khaleed Khan for five years respectively.
