Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) will question the suspended player Nasir Jamshed in the spot-fixing scandal that transpired during the second edition of Pakistan Super League (PSL). It is believed that it was Jamshed, who introduced Khalid Latif and Sharjeel Khan to a bookie named Yousuf. All the three players were suspended by the PCB last month for fixing charges.
As per sources, Jamshed, who is based in London now-a-days, will be questioned by Pakistan High Commission in London,
“He can’t come to Pakistan as he is on bail and has to appear before UK’s national crime agency in April in this case. But we want to also question him in detail about his role in the PSL spot-fixing scandal,” a source told PTI.
“It will happen soon as Nasir appears to have played a key role in the spot-fixing scandal that came to our notice,” the source added.
This is not the first time when Jamshed has come under scanner for fixing charges as before this, he was in the dock during the Bangladesh Premier League (BPL) as well but the left-handed batsman was cleared of all charges and also played for Pakistan in 2015 ICC World Cup, held in Australia and New Zealand.
Recently, Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) appointed a three-member tribunal committee to look into the fixing scandal, involving Khalid Latif and Sharjeel Khan. Both the cricketers submitted their reply to the board, in which they accepted to breaching disciplinary code but did not accept the fixing charges. The committee is still investigating in the matter and will give its report in the next two and a half months.
Along with them, Mohammad Irfan was also suspended by the PCB for failing to report to PCB for being approached by a bookie.
