Lahore [Pakistan], Oct 22 (ANI): Justice Mian Hamid Farooq, an independent adjudicator in Pakistani cricket tribunal upheld the ten-year ban handed to tainted Pakistan opener Nasir Jamshed for his involvement in a spot-fixing scandal during the second edition of the Pakistan Super League (PSL).
Justice Farooq, who led the bench, ruled that Jamshed's punishment was 'perfectly justified' and will continue to remain in force, the Express Tribune reported.
The two additional sanctions imposed by the Pakistan Cricket Board's (PCB) Anti-Corruption Tribunal have been set aside since they fall outside the confines provided under Article 6.2 of the PCB's Anti-Corruption Code.
The two sanctions are Jamshed's inclusion in the list of players to be avoided by players, stakeholders and not to be given an important office in the management or administration of the sport.
In an official statement, the PCB earlier had issued a Notice of Charge to Jamshed, wherein he was charged with multiple violations under Articles 2.1.1, 2.1.2, 2.1.3, 2.1.4 and 2.4.4 of the PCB's Anti-Corruption Code for Participants.
The PCB had banned Jamshed after declaring him the main culprit in the spot-fixing scandal in 2017 PSL. The other players who were named in the fiasco were Islamabad United openers, Sharjeel Khan and Khalid Latif. Both were handed five-year bans. Mohammad Irfan and Mohammad Nawaz were suspended for a 12-month period in the same case. (ANI)
