Nasir Jamshed believes that the PCB is turning players to testify against him and has threatened to take the PCB to court given that the ongoing Pakistan Super League corruption scandal is affecting his personal life. Jamshed also challenged the PCB to provide evidence, rather than spoil his name.
Jamshed believes that the PCB is being unfair to him in their handling of the corruption scandal. “PCB is being unfair with me as they are pressuring players and asking them to testify against me,” Jamshed said, as reported by ESPNCRICINFO.
More importantly, given that the ongoing corruption scandal is affecting his personal life, Jamshed is considering taking the PCB to court for tarnishing his image and even challenged the board to give evidence of his involvement in activities. “There is something called professionalism and with all this, my personal life is being affected."
"I have already consulted my lawyer and we want to challenge this and are willing to take PCB to court over this. “Rather than maligning my name, I urge PCB to offer the evidence and I challenge them to bring all the evidence in public,” he added.
Jamshed is one of the 7 players to be under the PCB’s scanner for their involvement in the corruption scandal that hit the Pakistan Super League in February and March this year.
On Wednesday, the PCB banned Mohammad Nawaz, the seventh Pakistan player, for two months after he accepted charges of not reporting a suspect approach. Last month, Mohammad Irfan was also banned for a year for his part in the scandal while Zulfiqar Babar was called for questioning.
