Nasir Jamshed, former Pakistani cricketer has been found guilty by the independent tribunal. He has been subsequently handed over 10 years of ban from any form of competitive cricket. He has also been banned from holding any managerial role in cricket. Nasir Jamshed previously rejected all the charges against him levelled by the PCB.
Out of the seven charges framed against him under the Anti-Corruption Code, he has been convicted of violating five charges. After the hearing, it has been observed that he was the linchpin of the Match Fixing Scandal that broke out after PSL 2017. He was involved in bringing other players to the fold. Nasir has represented Pakistan and was once called an emerging talent house. However, his career saw a premature end due to the fixing allegations and then the conviction.
He was also arrested in the UK due to the allegations of Match Fixing a year ago and was subsequently released. He is the third player to be convicted under Anti-Corruption code for PSL 2017. Earlier this year, he completed the one year ban that was imposed on him for the non-cooperation of the anti-corruption investigation. He was then charged with Match Fixing.
The 28 years old has represented Pakistan in 2 Tests, 48 ODIs, and 2 T20Is. He became a prominent player after he scored 2 centuries against India in 2012. Pakistan has battled with the Match Fixing for a long time and this came as another setback for the PCB.
