Nasir Jamshed's 10-year ban for spot-fixing upheld

An independent adjudicator hearing the appeal filed by Nasir Jamshed against the decision of the Anti-Corruption Tribunal has upheld the 10-year ban imposed on Jamshed.

“The ban is perfectly justified and shall continue to remain in force” adjudicator announced. However, the additional penalties imposed by the Anti-Corruption Tribunal related to the inclusion of Nasir in the list of players to be avoided by cricketers and all stakeholders.

Moreover, he shall not be given an important role in the management or administration of cricket as per the jurisdiction of Article 6.2 of the PCB’s Anti-Corruption Code.

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.

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