The Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) have formally charged out-of-favour opener Nasir Jamshed in relation to their ongoing Pakistan Super League (PSL) corruption investigation.
Jamshed has been charged with breaching clauses 2.4.6 and 2.4.7 of the PCB’s Anti-Corruption Code, which relates to “failing or refusing, without compelling justification, to cooperate” with a PCB investigation and “obstructing or delaying any investigation” that the board are involved in.
Despite being based in Birmingham, Jamshed has 14 days to respond to the charges against him.
Jamshed was arrested by England’s National Crime Agency in February before being released on bail.
The PCB tried to bring him back to Pakistan, but failed. They also sent two officials to England, but they were unable to meet him.
The PCB believe that the 27-year-old played a big part in the corruption scandal.
