Pakistan Cricket Board’s (PCB’s) anti-corruption tribunal earlier proclaimed that it has decided to ban cricketer Nasir Jamshed for a period of 10 Years. The tribunal had to take the recent decision as a result of Jamshed’s connection in the spot-fixing row. The PCB validated the recent news on Friday.
The anti-corruption tribunal pointed out that Jamshed was found accountable in relation to five of the seven violations of the board’s anti-corruption code. The tribunal announced its decision to ban Jamshed from participating in any type of cricket for the abovementioned period. The tribunal stated that a player who breached the anti-corruption code should also be banned from taking up any executive titles relating to Pakistan’s cricket for rest of the life.
The PCB noted Jamshed as an important individual in the earlier scam. The PCB stated that Jamshed was involved in the recruitment of players for bookies intended for spot-fixing. Taffazul Rizvi, PCB’s lawyer, informed the reporters in Lahore that the PCB was successful in proving its point. Furthermore, the tribunal found Jamshed guilty on multiple charges. It accepted the PCB’s point.
On a similar note, earlier, PCB released the list of 33 centrally contracted players for 2018–2019 season. As per the latest list, the PCB has decided to exclude batsman Ahmed Shehzad from its team. Lately, PCB had decided to temporarily suspend Shehzad as he had failed the dope test. In addition, the board rolled out a novel category “E.”
The latest PCB press release proclaimed that the financial year 2017–2018 marked the decision of a 3-Year financial formula. The latest formula was established between the PCB and its players. The PCB had involved few of players’ representatives such as Sarfraz Ahmed, Captain, and Shoaib Malik, senior player while announcing the recent agreement.
