Former Pakistan opener Jamshed formally charged with anti-corruption breaches

Updated: 

Former Pakistan Nasir Jamshed batsman has been formally charged with breaching two articles of the Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) anti-corruption code.

The opener was provisionally suspended by the PCB in February and was on Tuesday given a notice of charge for violating articles 2.4.6 and 2.4.7 following an investigation related to the Pakistan Super League (PSL).

The breaches relate to failing or refusing to cooperate with an investigation carried out by the PCB Vigilance and Security Department and obstructing or delaying an investigation.

Jamshed has a fortnight to respond to the charges, while Shahzaib Hasan's matter has been referred to the Anti-Corruption Tribunal.

Shahzaib became the fifth player to be suspended by the PCB last month. The batsman was charged with breaching articles 2.1.4, 2.4.4 and 2.4.5 of the code.

Pakistan paceman Mohammad Irfan was last month banned for a year after pleading guilty to two breaches of its anti-corruption code.

Khalid Latif was formally charged with six breaches of the governing body and faces a hearing in May after pleading not guilty.

Sharjeel Khan will also face a hearing after entering the same plea to corruption charges.
