British court to sentence Nasir Jamshed on February 7


Manchester: Former cricketer Nasir Jamshed’s decision on the spot-fixing case will be announced on February 7 by the British court.

The left-handed batsman is accused of bribing a fellow player in a T20 match on which National Crime Agency investigated the matter and arrested three culprits including Nasir.

During the trial in Crown Court, Nasir Jamshed also confessed to the allegations against him and told the court that he had also encouraged fellow cricketers to fix the match.

Yusuf Anwar and Mohammad Ijaz, two detained men for match-fixing, also confessed to the charges against them during the trial and will also be sentenced along with Nasir on February 7.

It must be noted that Nasir Jamshed has already been given a ten-year ban by the PCB in the fixing scandal.

It should be recalled that the National Crime Agency arrested 35-year-old British citizen Yusuf Anwar and 33-year-old Mohammed Ijaz two years ago in February and they were being accused of spot-fixing including Nasir Jamshed in Bangladesh and Pakistan T20 cricket matches.

The 33-year-old Nasir Jamshed has played two Tests, 48 ODI, and 18 T20I.
