Former Pakistan batsman Nasir Jamshed has rejected the corruption charges the Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) have placed upon him.

As a result of this, he will have to appear before an anti-corruption tribunal, who will decide his fate in regards to five breaches of the PCB’s anti-corruption code.

The five charges were issued just five days before Jamshed was banned for one year due to the fact that he did not cooperate with the PCB’s investigation into the Pakistan Super League (PSL) spot-fixing scandal.

The three-member tribunal will comprise of Justice (Retd.) Fazl-e-Miran Chauhan, Shahzaib Masood and former Pakistan cricketer Aqib Javed.

Jamshed is currently based in Birmingham and has been in contact with the PCB through his lawyer, who is based in Lahore.

Jamshed is one of five players that were indicted in the spot-fixing scandal, with the others being Sharjeel Khan, Khalid Latif, Mohammad Irfan and Mohammad Nawaz.

Sharjeel and Latif were both banned for five years, while Irfan and Nawaz were banned for 12 months and two months respectively.
