“Three men have been charged with bribery offences as part of a National Crime Agency (NCA) investigation into cricket match spot-fixing in tournaments organised by national cricket boards from Pakistan and Bangladesh,” the British agency said.

Jamshed, who played 48 one-day internationals and two Tests for Pakistan, was suspended from all forms of cricket in February 2017 by the PCB for violating its anti-corruption code.

The anti-corruption tribunal of the PCB found Nasir Jamshed guilty of violating its corruption code of conduct under the Articles 2.1.1., 2.1.2, 2.1.3, 2.1.4 and 2.4.4. during the Pakistan Super League (PSL) 2017.

Nasir was already serving a one year ban for his poor behaviour with the PCB’s in the spot-fixing.

Left-handed opening batsman, Jamshed made his Pakistan debut against Zimbabwe in 2008.
