Nasir Jamshed charged with bribery offences by England Crime Agency

Batsman Nasir Jamshed has been charged with bribery offences on Thursday by England National Crime Agency (NCA) as part of an investigation.

Three men including Jamshed has been charged into cricket match spot-fixing in tournaments organised by national cricket boards from Pakistan and Bangladesh.

The Crown Prosecution Service served them with a written summons by charging them each with two counts of bribery.

Their first appearance at Manchester Magistrates Court will be on January 15, 2019.

Jamshed was banned for ten years earlier this year on multiple charges of spot-fixing, wrapping up a 16-month investigation into a wide-ranging scandal that rocked the Pakistan Super League.

He was first banned for 12 months in December last year after he was found guilty of non-cooperation with the tribunal investigating allegations of spot-fixing.

The left-hander played two Tests, 48 one-day and 18 Twenty20 internationals for Pakistan.
