PCB suspends Nasir Jamshed for violating anti-corruption code
DUBAI: The Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) on Monday provisionally suspended opening batsman Nasir Jamshed for violating PCB’s anti-corruption code.
Nasir, who represented Pakistan in two Test matches, 48 One-day Internationals and 18 Twenty20 Internationals, has been suspended from participating in all forms of cricket.
He was reportedly alleged in the media as the player who connected other players with suspected bookies.
The PCB has yet to officially elaborate the nature and timing of violation but it is understood that it is connected with the recent corruption scandal in Pakistan Super League (PSL) which led to the suspension of Khalid Latif and Sharjeel Khan.
The PCB on Friday had suspended Khalid Latif and Sharjeel Khan after an initial inquiry into attempts by an international syndicate to corrupt the PSL.
