The Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) officials said on Tuesday that PCB’s inquiry committee will travel to UK to investigate the matter of Nasir Jamshed’s involvement in the Pakistan Super League (PSL) spot-fixing scandal.

While talking to DawnNews, a PCB official said that a two-member inquiry committee has been formed to question Jamshed.

It is pertinent to mention that the board had suspended Jamshed on the suspicion of being involved in the spot fixing scandal that shook PSL.

According to the official, PCB`s anti-corruption unit chief Col (retd) Azam and board’s legal manager Salman Naseer will travel to UK to investigate the matter as soon as they receive their visa confirmation.

According to media reports Jamshed was investigated by National Crime Agency in UK and his passport was withheld by the authorities when he was granted bail.

PCB Chairman Shaharyar Khan had accused Jamshed of having contacts with English bookies and introducing the two main accused in the PSL scandal to a fixer.

Shahryar Khan claimed Jamshed was the one who introduced Sharjeel Khan and Khalid Latif to a bookie under the pretext that he was a fan.

Bookies from around the world had been eyeing the PSL, and that PCB had kept an eye on certain players from the beginning of the tournament, the PCB chairman had said.
