Nasir Jamshed's 10 years ban validated by independent adjudicator
LAHORE - Pakistan Cricket Board's independent Adjudicator comprising Justice (R) Mian Hamid Farooq has ratified the ten years ban on Nasir Jamshed against the decision of the Anti-Corruption Tribunal on Monday.

"The 10 year ban imposed on Nasir Jamshed by the anti-corruption tribunal for his alleged role in spot-fixing during the second edition of Pakistan Super League in UAE has been found to be 'perfectly justified' and will continue to remain in force," he announced the order here.

Justice (R) Mian Hamid Farooq said two additional sanctions imposed by the Anti-Corruption Tribunal, i.e the inclusion of Nasir in the list of players to be avoided by cricketers and all stakeholders and not to be given an important role in the management or administration of cricket, have been set aside as they fall outside the confines provided under Article 6.2 of the PCB's Anti-Corruption Code.

The order explicitly outlined that PCB's fight against corruption in the game continues and the board will take all necessary steps in order to root out corruption at all levels.

Opener Nasir Jamshed was banned for ten years by the PCB declaring him guilty of violating its anti-corruption code of conduct under Articles 2.1.1, 2.1.2, 2.1.3, 2.1.4 and 2.4.4 during the 2017 edition of Pakistan Super League.

The cricketer was already serving a one-year ban for his non-cooperation with the PCB’s spot-fixing investigation during the 2017 edition of the Pakistan Super League.
