PCB bans Nasir Jamshed for one year in spot-fixing probe

The Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) has banned former batsman Nasir Jamshed for one year for non-cooperation with the board in the ongoing Pakistan Super League (PSL) spot-fixing probe.
The board’s anti-corruption tribunal on Monday declared Jamshed guilty of violating its code for “obstruction and non-cooperation” in the spot-fixing case.
The former opener was charged with violating two articles, 2.4.6 and 2.4.7, of the PCB’s anti-corruption code, one of which was “obstruction and non-cooperation” under which he has now been banned from cricket for a year.
The PCB’s anti-corruption unit is soon to bring forward main charges against him in the fixing case. 
The board believes Jamshed played a central role in the spot-fixing scandal which hit PSL earlier this year. He was arrested by the UK’s National Crime Agency (NCA) in February, the same day he was provisionally suspended by the PCB for allegedly violating its anti-corruption code. He was later released on bail.
