Nasir Jamshed, who has been provisionally suspended by the Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) for allegedly being the main culprit in PSL spot-fixing row, has threatened the board to take them to the court.
In the second video message since he being named as the main character of fixing probe, Jamshed challenged the board’s anti-corruption unit to public the evidence they have against him and stop maligning his name.
“PCB is being unfair with me as they are pressurising players and and asking them to testify against me,” said Nasir Jamshed.
“Rather than maligning my name, I urge PCB to offer the evidence and I challenge them to bring all the evidence in public. There is something called professionalism and with all this my personal life is being affected. I have already consulted my lawyer and we want to challenge this and are willing to take PCB to court over this,” he added.
PCB has a stance that the left-handed opening batsman provoked players to meet bookies during the second edition of the Pakistan Super League (PSL). He was also arrested by National Crime Agency (NCA) in the UK for this act, however, he was later released on bail.
The PCB is taking advantage of my silence. Time to answer back and take them to court. pic.twitter.com/e2XQ575qyY
