Pakistan’s discarded Test opener Nasir Jamshed, who once scored three consecutive centuries against arch rival India, faces the prospect of ban in absentia for his alleged role in the Pakistan Super League spot-fixing scandal if he doesn’t respond to the charge sheet filed against him by the PCB on May 18.
The PCB filed a chargesheet against Nasir, 28, last week with the anti-corruption tribunal containing six allegations against the opener who resides in the United Kingdom now.
If there is no reply from him till May 18, the tribunal has the authority to announce its verdict in the case in 40 days. The PCB in its chargesheet has alleged that Nasir persuaded four cricketers through an agent, Muhammad Yousuf to become part of a spot-fixing scandal in the second PSL in February, 2017.
He is also charged with obstructing and not cooperating with the tribunal inquiry and also failing to inform the authorities about being approached by bookmakers to fix matches.
