PCB turn down Nasir Jamshed’s request in spot-fixing case


LAHORE: The Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) on Friday turned down Nasir Jamshed’s request that he be allowed time to respond to an investigation into his alleged involvement in the Pakistan Super League (PSL) spot-fixing case.
Jamshed said he wanted to see the British National Crime Agency’s investigation into an old case of spot-fixing in which he is also implicated through before he can present himself to the PCB.
PCB, however, reiterated that Jamshed needs to submit his written reply about his position in the matter.
While explaining the matter, a PCB official said the PCB has already charged Jamshed for not cooperating in the PSL spot-fixing scandal, and that as a Pakistani cricketer he is bound to answer to the PCB in the ongoing investigation.
The official added that the PCB will wait for his written reply after a charge sheet is issued to him.
It has been decided that Jamshed’s case will be sent to an anti-corruption tribunal, and he faces a lifetime ban from the game in case he refuses to cooperate with the PCB in the investigation or refuses to reply to the charge sheet.
