Jamshed banned for a year for refusing to co-operate with spot-fixing probe

FORMER Pakistan opener Nasir Jamshed has been banned for a year for not co-operating with an investigation into spot-fixing.

The 28-year-old, who represented his country 68 times across all formats, was charged in April in relation to spot-fixing at last winter’s Pakistan Super League.

Jamshed was found to have violated two parts of the Pakistan Cricket Board’s anti-corruption code — not co-operating and obstructing or delaying an investigation.

He has now been suspended by the PCB, which is preparing to bring more charges in the fixing case.

Jamshed was arrested by British police in February and was provisionally suspended from all forms of the game. He was later released on bail.

Former Pakistan batsmen Sharjeel Khan and Khalid Latif have both been suspended for five years by the PCB for their roles in the spot-fixing case.

Fast bowler Mohammad Irfan was banned for a year and all-rounder Mohammad Nawaz was given a two-month suspension.
