Nasir Jamshed, the out-of-favour Pakistan opener, has become the third player to be provisionally suspended by the PCB as it continues its investigation into the corruption scandal that hit the Pakistan Super League this weekend.
“PCB has provisionally suspended Nasir Jamshed from all forms of cricket for violating its anti-corruption code,” said a statement issued by the board on Monday.
But the exact nature of his involvement has not been made clear.
Unlike Sharjeel Khan and Khalid Latif - the two Islamabad United players who have already been sent back from the league for alleged breaches of the anti-corruption code - Jamshed was not part of any PSL franchise. Jamshed’s name had cropped up initially in speculation surrounding the news of Latif and Sharjeel’s suspensions.
The PCB named three other players who were questioned in the fallout: Islamabad United’s Mohammad Irfan, Quetta Gladiators’ Zulfiqar Babar and Shahzaib Hasan of the Karachi Kings. —Cricinfo
