LAHORE – The spot-fixing scandal that has defamed Pakistan Super League (PSL) grew in proportion on Wednesday as another player Mohammad Nawaz, a Test discard, was suspended for a month from all forms of cricket for his involvement in the controversy.

Nawaz has also been fined Rs 200,000 for breaching the board’s anti-corruption code.

The 23-year-old appeared before the ACU on May 11, where he was questioned in connection with the PSL spot-fixing scandal.

During the hearing, Nawaz presented his arguments to the ACU in relation to possible breaches of the PCB’s anti-corruption code.

He was earlier issued a notice of demand under Article 4.3 of the PCB anti-corruption code. The ban will be effective from May 16, the PCB said today.
