Islamabad, Aug 17: Former Pakistan opener Nasir Jamshed has been banned for 10 years for his part in the spot-fixing scandal that marred the 2017 Pakistan Super League.
The 28-year-old, who played in 48 one-day internationals and two Test matches, had already been given a one-year ban for his failure to co-operate with an investigation into the issue.
In a short verdict, the three-man tribunal ruled on Friday that apart from suspension from playing any level of cricket, a player found to be in breach of the anti-corruption code should also be ineligible from holding any management roles in Pakistan cricket for life.
He is the sixth Pakistan player to be punished in the wake of the PSL spot-fixing case in 2017 and received the heaviest punishment. Previously, Sharjeel Khan, Khalid Latif, Mohammad Nawaz, Mohammad Irfan and Shahzaib Hasan were all fined and banned on separate charges.
PSL 2017's fixing trial has concluded, there are a few cases you really don't rejoice after winning. Instead, you feel sad about it because it ends with another career destroyed." PCB lawyer Tafazzul Rizvi said after the verdict.
