PCB has concrete evidence against Nasir Jamshed: PCB chief

LAHORE: Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) Chairman Shahryar Khan Wednesday claimed that the PCB has concrete evidence against batsman Nasir Jamshed on his role in the PSL fixing scandal.
Talking to newsmen in Lahore, the PCB chief said that the board had handed the evidence against Jamshed to the UK government, following which Britain’s National Crime Agency carried out action against the cricketer.
Shahryar Khan vowed to hand out the strictest punishment possible to the players involved in fixing during the Pakistan Super League.
“There will be no leniency for the players found involved in fixing. We will give them maximum punishment which will serve as an example to all,” Khan said when asked about developments against Sharjeel Khan and Khalid Latif.
The chairman added that both Sharjeel and Latif were being given the opportunity to defend themselves. “We have evidence against these two, and we will put it before them,” he said.
Shahryar added that if the two players plead guilty, then there will be no need to form a commission to probe the matter. He reiterated the board’s resolve to hold the PSL final in Lahore.
“We have told the government we are organising the final in Lahore,” he said.
“We will not bow down to terrorism,” he added. He thanked the army chief Gen Qambar Javed Bajwa for support for PSL final in Lahore. — Agencies
