The days keep getting worse for Nasir Jamshed who was previously banned for one year by PCB in a PSL anti-corruption case. Jamshed violated PCB’s clause 2.4.6 – punishment for non-cooperation in an ongoing investigation.
However, now the Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) has issued new notices to the opener for violating five different anti-corruption clauses.
The board issued a statement informing Jamshed about his violations. The statement reads;

Nasir Jamshaid now has fourteen (14) days to respond to the Notice of Charge.
As per cricket board’s regulations, Jamshed was found violating the following five clauses;
2.1.1 Clause 2.1 handles all corruption related issues. According to its extension 2.1.1
