Jamshed charged with bribery in spot-fixing investigation

Jamshed charged with bribery in spot-fixing investigation

British's National Crime Agency (NCA) on Thursday (December 20) indicted Nasir Jamshed for his role in the last year's Pakistan Super League spot-fixing scandal. According to a statement issued by the NCA, Jamshed was one of the three men charged with bribery offences.

"Three men have been charged with bribery offences as part of a NCA investigation into cricket match spot-fixing in tournaments organised by national cricket boards from Pakistan and Bangladesh," the British agency said. Jamshed along with the other two personnel were served with written summonses charging them on two accounts of bribery. The three will appear before Manchester Magistrates Court on January 15.

Deemed to be the "linchpin" by the Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) behind the spot-fixing scandal which saw Khalid Latif and Sharjeel Khan banned for five years, Jamshed was banned for 10 years for violating PCB's anti-corruption code in August.

He was arrested last year by the NCA along with British nationals Yousaf Anwar (35) and Mohammed Ijaz (33) during the investigations launched by the cricket boards of Pakistan and Bangladesh.

Left-handed opening batsman, Jamshed made his Pakistan debut against Zimbabwe in 2008. He took part in 68 international matches, across all three formats, before getting dropped following a poor 2015 World Cup.
