PCB suspends Jamshed for violating anti-corruption code


The chairman of the Pakistan Super League (PSL) has announced that Nasir Jamshed has been provisionally suspended by the Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) for violating its anti-corruption code.

Sharjeel Khan and Khalid Latif were each handed provisional bans from the PSL last Friday, as part of what the PCB described as "an ongoing investigation into an international syndicate which is believed to be attempting to corrupt the Pakistan Super League."

On Saturday, the PCB revealed a further three players had been questioned, although no further suspensions were enforced.

PSL chairman Najam Sethi has now revealed Jamshed has been barred from all forms of cricket, in a post from his official Twitter account that was retweeted by the PCB.

Sethi's tweet read: "PCB has provisionally suspended Nasir Jamshed from all forms of cricket for violating its anti-corruption code."

Opening batsman Jamshed has represented Pakistan in two Tests, 48 one-day internationals and 18 Twenty20s, although his last international appearance came back in March 2015.
