Discarded Pakistan batsman Nasir Jamshed is ready to cooperate with Pakistan Cricket Board’s (PCB) investigative committee after he was provisionally suspended for his alleged involvement in the spot-fixing scandal during the recently concluded Pakistan Super League.

Sporztwiki learnt Jamshed following the help of his lawyer has reached to PCB by saying his passport was confiscated by the National Crime Agency (NCA), of UK during his stay in Birmingham.

The video message suggested the 27-year-old Jamshed made a statement that he will present himself before the PCB authorities after the completion of investigation in England.

“I have no control over what is being said in the media. I have neither changed residences, nor am I hiding from anyone. I am completely ready to cooperate with the PCB. My only request is to let the NCA inquiry being conducted to reach its conclusion first,” Jamshed was quoted as saying by Dawn.com.

Jamshed was charged for breaching the Anti-Corruption Code of Conduct. The violations were related to the obstruction while not cooperating with the investigation regarding fixing scandal.

PCB believes Jamshed is the main character, who had attempted to corrupt the matches during the second edition of PSL with the international business syndicate.

However, the left-handed batsman stated the national board should wait before the completion of an investigation by United Kingdom’s NCA department which has grilled Jamshed over the same issue after Pakistan board has requested them to inquire regarding the matter in February.

“This is something the PCB had stated itself, when they stopped an FIA inquiry. I believe that too. First the NCA inquiry should be completed,” Jamshed said.

During this week, Jamshed was charged with two violations of the Pakistan cricket board’s Code of Conduct before being asked to report on the issue within 14 days.

Jamshed was released on bail in England when he was arrested by the police following the spot-fixing scandal hit that hit Pakistan Super League in Dubai which further saw fast bowler Mohammad Irfan being banned for a year earlier this month.

“The PCB has stated itself that they are in regular contact with the NCA, and are fully aware of the inquiry. Once it ends, I will present myself as and when the PCB requires me to,” Jamshed added.

On the other side, Jamshed was provisionally suspended alongside Sharjeel Khan, Khalid Latif and Shahzaib Hassan.

Earlier, during the investigation, Pakistan’s Federal Investigation agency also swung into action following the orders of interior minister Chaudhry Nisar Ali Khan which further saw four players on the hinge of exit control list as PCB has asked for assistance in the collection the evidence from provisionally suspended players.

Jamshed has played two Tests, 48 ODIs and 18 T20Is for Pakistan. He has scored three centuries in a 50-over format which further include eight fifties after amassing 1,418 runs.
