Tribunal to convene on June 6 where witness from British national crime agency would be present
Pakistan all-rounder Mohammad Nawaz appeared before the tribunal on Tuesday and gave his testimony against Nasir Jamshed’s alleged involvement in the Pakistan Super League (PSL) spot-fixing scandal in 2017.
Jamshed has been accused of facilitating spot-fixing during the second edition of the PSL and Nawaz revealed to the Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) anti-corruption tribunal that he was most certainly contacted by a bookie who offered to provide assistance in fixing.
Nawaz further revealed that he instantly rejected the offer and refused to become an instrument.
PCB legal advisor Tafazzul Rizvi revealed that the next hearing will take place on Wednesday and that a British national crime agency’s representative will appear as a witness.
Nasir Jamshed’s lawyer Hasan Waraich, meanwhile, said that Nawaz doesn’t have anything substantial and is only trying to save his career.
“Nawaz did not give any proof to the PCB and is just trying to save his career,” he said.
He further added that his client was accused of working with bookie Yousuf, but the PCB has been unable to establish that as a fact.
Waraich further said that the PCB is wasting his client’s time and that Jamshed was suffering only because he disobeyed the PCB.
