Pakistani batsman Nasir Jamshed banned for ten years

PCB's anti-corruption tribunal declared Jamshed guilty of violating its anti-corruption code of conduct under Articles 2.1.1, 2.1.2, 2.1.3, 2.1.4 and 2.4.4 during the 2017 edition of Pakistan Super League.

Nasir Jamshed, who played 48 ODIs and two Tests, was suspended from all forms of cricket in February 2017 for violating the PCB's anti-corruption code. In December 2017, Jamshed was banned for a year by PCB when an anti-corruption tribunal had found him guilty of non-cooperation in the 2017 PSL spot-fixing case.

During the hearing, Jamshed's lawyer Hasan Waraich rejected PCB's accusation, whereas the former opener recorded his statement through Skype from England where he answered PCB legal team's questions.

'Our stance from the first day was the he (Jamshed) is the linchpin and he is the one who recruited players and all this fixing saga took place, ' Rizvi said.

Rizvi said that even if Jamshed returned from his 10-year ban, he will not be engaged in any cricket management role.

The other Pakistani cricketers to receive bans were Sharjeel Khan, Khalid Latif, Mohammad Irfan and Mohammad Nawaz.

Jamshed did not participate in the first two editions of the PSL but was alleged to have played a major role in the spot-fixing scandal that engulfed the Twenty20 tournament a year ago.

Jamshed, who made his worldwide debut in 2008, has represented the Men in Green in two Tests, 48 ODIs and 18 T20Is, where he collectively scored 1,832 runs with the help of three centuries and 10 half-centuries.
