Manchester: Former Pakistan opening batsman Nasir Jamshed has been found guilty of involvement in a conspiracy to bribe his fellow cricketers in the Pakistan Super League (PSL). He has confessed his crime and will be sentenced in February next year. According to a report by Cricinfo, a hearing is going on in England court against Nasir.
Jamshed was arrested in February 2017 along with 2 England citizens, Yusuf Anwar and Mohammed Ijaz. Anwar and Ijaz had confessed to taking bribes from PSL players only last week. Investigations found that in 2016 Bangladesh Premier League (BPL) also attempted fixing, while matches in 2017 were fixed in PSL. In both cases, Jamshed agreed not to score runs on the first 2 balls.
Jamshed, who played 48 ODIs and 18 T20s for Pakistan, was banned from cricket for 10 years last year by the Anti-Corruption Unit of Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB). Since then, former Pakistan opening batsman Nasir Jamshed's cricket career has come to an end.
