    I think Sethi has a personal vendetta against Sharjeel Khan. He must be envious of his success. I don’t see any reason why Sharjeel would be involved, he had so much opportunities for the future. It’s sad to see Sethi destroy a remarkable players career for his own personal malicious agenda.

    I'm glad you have managed to keep up with his statements. Didn't he also say Sharjeel carried out the fixing in the opening game? Or was it a case of him and Latif not reporting an approach. I'm confused, please help.

    A hypothetical question.

    If sometime in the near future the ICC were to charge and ban a player for not reporting an approach, and bearing in mind that the ICC did nothing to McCullum for not reporting, as outlined in your post, could that player then have a case if he were to take the ICC to court on the basis of double standards, and/or the fact that the ICC have already set a precedent vis-a-vis the non action against McCullum?

    FIA submits initial report on PSL spot-fixing

    Islamabad - Federal Investigation Agency (FIA) has submitted initial findings report on spot-fixing in the second edition of Pakistan Super League (PSL) to Interior Minister Chaudhry Nisar Ali Khan on Friday.

    The reliable sources told The Nation that FIA had mentioned different points, how to prevent spot-fixing and players’ involvement in this scam, while it was also stressed in the report to carefully monitor the evidences and proves provided by the PCB and forensic help should be taken to determine the actual culprits.

    The sources said it was also taken into account that players deliberately erased the messages in their cell phones. “It was also taken into account that it was not about the involvement of a few players and it is not just their individual act, but in fact, it is about the reputation of the entire PSL and the country and such things bring bad name to the country and badly tarnish its image,” they added.

    The Interior Minister directed FIA to take all aspects into account, go into each and every detail and thorough investigation from every angle must be conducted. He also directed FIA not to bow down under any pressure from any quarter and just focus on free, fair and impartial investigation and find out actual culprits.

    The minister also directed FIA to complete findings as early as possible and submit detailed report to him so that the persons, who inflict huge damages on the game and PSL, must be taken to task and exemplary punishments must be awarded to them. “There is no room for the spot-fixers and match-throwers in Pakistan and in cricket,” he added.

    It is pertinent to mention here that after this incident, entire cricketing world once again raised fingers at Pakistan cricket. When Najam Sethi had announced that Sharjeel Khan and Khalid Latif were involved in spot-fixing as both were sent home immediately while an inquiry was also conducted against lanky pacer M Irfan and other few players, whose names were not disclosed by the board, the PSL head should have provided those evidences to the Interior Ministry and FIA, which could help in finding the real culprits, but after a lapse of almost one month, nothing was heard from him and others.

    Any further delay from providing those solid proofs could bring disaster to Pakistan cricket, which can further diminish its image globally. A stern action against culprits and across the board operation cleanup is the only way to save cricket from further downslide.

    Seems like PCB has asked FIA (Federal Investigation Agency) to get involved. The players will be required to give FIA their statements and there will be a deeper investigation.

    The only way is a "deeper investigation". I have no trust in the PCB/PSL/Sethi/Shahryar to form a Whatsapp group, let-alone an investigation into fixing.

    Don't they have an ACU headed by an ex-army Colonel? I think it is more about optics and to ensure they have seeked help from the right agency to sort this out.

    [REPORTS] PSL spot-fixing case: Pakistan Cricket Board to grill Nasir Jamshed

    Karachi: The Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) will interrogate Test batsman Nasir Jamshed for his role in PSL spot-fixing scandal that led to suspension of three players. According to a well-informed official in the board, Jamshed will be questioned in at the Pakistan High Commission in London, where he is based these days. "He can't come to Pakistan as he is on bail and has to appear before UK's national crime agency in April in this case. But we want to also question him in detail about his role in the PSL spot-fixing scandal," the source told PTI.

    According to the official either Jamshed would be questioned on skype or the head of the PCB Anti-Corruption Unit, Colonel Azam would fly to London with a legal advisor to carry out the interview. "It will happen soon as Nasir appears to have played a key role in the spot-fixing scandal that came to our notice.
    He is the one who asked Sharjeel Khan, Khalid Latif and others to meet with the suspected bookmaker, Yousuf Anwar in Dubai last month," the source claimed.

    Media reports have said that Nasir has also agreed to become an approver in the case for the PCB but the source said he was not in a position to confirm or deny this. Jamshed, 27, who has appeared in two Tests, 48 ODIs and 18 T20 internationals is presently settled in the UK with his family but appeared in Pakistan¿s ongoing domestic season in January.

    The left-hander was also suspected of spot-fixing in the Bangladesh Premier League two years back but managed to escape without any punishment and went on to make his last appearance for Pakistan in the 2015 World Cup. The PCB has already suspended three players, Sharjeel, Khalid and Muhammad Irfan in the case and a three-member tribunal, headed by a former judge, has already been formed to hold the hearings. Both Sharjeel and Khalid have denied doing any spot-fixing for the suspected bookmaker and a yet to be named foreigner but have admitted to not informing authorities when approaches were made to them to spot fix matches in the PSL.

    Similarly pace bowler, Muhammad Irfan has also admitted getting offers and not informing the authorities about him and has also been provisionally suspended from all cricket and has been given 14-days to reply to the show cause notice issued to him in which he has been charged with violation of some clauses of the ACU code. The PCB ACU officials and legal advisor have also carried out detailed questioning of another Pakistani player, Shahzaib Hasan on Tuesday and Wednesday in Lahore. Pakistan interior minister, Chaudhary Nisar Ali Khan told the media in Islamabad on Thursday that the government was taking the PSL spot-fixing case seriously. "The PSL spot-fixing case is not just about our cricket it is also an embarrassment for Pakistan and I can tell you if anyone is found guilty of playing with the integrity of the game and image of Pakistan he can expect strong punishment," Nisar said.

    ISLAMABAD: Interior Minister Chaudhry Nisar Ali has said that any cricketer found guilty of spot-fixing during the second edition of Pakistan Super League (PSL) will be jailed.

    “If UK can jail cricketers for corruption, why can’t we do it,” Nisar told media persons in Islamabad.

    “This business of spot fixing is our weakness. We cannot let cricketers bring a bad name to Pakistan,” he said. He said that spot-fixing is not just a matter between the cricket board and few players.

    The interior minister said that an FIR would soon be launched against players after completing an initial inquiry into spot-fixing.

    “Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) can only suspend or ban players, it doesn’t have the authority to try them,” he added.

    Sharjeel Khan, Khalid Latif and Mohammad Irfan have been suspended by the cricket board in connection with their alleged contacts with bookies ahead of the PSL.

    Shahzab Hasan, a fourth cricketer, is also likely to face suspension. – SAMAA

    PCB ACU to probe Jamshed in London

    LAHORE: The probe of Pakistan Super League spot-fixing scandal has been extended to England, ARY News reported on Saturday.

    Anti-Corruption Unit (ACU) of Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) will visit England to question Nasir Jamshed who is recently living in the country.

    The 2010 spot-fixing issue surfaced and decided in England, in which Pakistani cricketers Salman Butt, Mohammad Asif and Mohammad Amir faced trial and jailed for the cheating offence.

    Opening batsman Nasir Jamshed facing charges of playing a go-between role in PSL spot-fixing scandal between bookies and the players.

    The PCB Anti-Corruption Unit will visit England for questioning Nasir Jamshed who said to be reside at Old Hill Dudley. PCB chairman Shaharyar Khan has confirmed the report.

    Jamshed will visit Pakistan High Commission in London to attend the questioning session with the ACU officials.

    PCB had provisionally suspended Nasir Jamshed from all forms of cricket for violating its anti-corruption code after surfacing of the spot-fixing scandal and the player’s alleged involvement in it.

    Opening batsmen Sharjeel Khan, Khalid Latif, seamer Mohammad Irfan and Shahzeb Hasan have also been suspended and facing charges for their alleged role in the fixing scandal that rocked the second edition of the PSL.

    The case against Sharjeel/Khalid/Shahzaib is far worst than against Irfan

    Just heard a report in Express TV that Sharjeel/Khalid/Shahzaib are charged for which the punishment is 5 years if found guilty while Irfan is charged for which the punishment is 6 months if found guilty. So the case against Sharjeel/Khalid/Shahzaib is far worst than against Irfan. The report was suggesting that the case is not consistent and it was easy on Irfan .

    Five players to be put on ECL in PSL spot-fixing case

    KARACHI: The Federal Investigation Agency (FIA) is considering placing five national cricketers on the Exit Control List (ECL) after their suspected involvement in spot-fixing during the recent Pakistan Super League (PSL).

    According to sources, the FIA has submitted a letter to the Interior Ministry urging it to put names of five cricketers on the ECL. The move will bar players from foreign travel until completion of probe against them.

    The FIA says it was about to launch investigation against the five cricketers and travel ban on the players would help smooth continuation of the inquiry.

    Five players – Nasir Jamshed, Muhamamd Irfan, Shahzaib Hassan, Sharjeel Khan and Khalid Latif – are currently under investigation by the anti-corruption unit of the Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB).

    Irfan had admitted before the investigation panel his contact with a bookie. Sources informed that the bookie had approached the fast bowler during a PSL match.

    The PCB has asked Irfan to furnish his reply within 14 days.

    During the suspension period, Irfan is barred from playing any form of cricket. The bowler has also been handed over the charge-sheet by the cricket board.

    Regarding his contact with bookie, Irfan said he could not report about the offer of spot-fixing because he was under mental stress following his parents’ deaths recently.

    Making a disclosure before the PCB’s Anti-Corruption Unit (ACU), Irfan admitted that he had received offer of spot-fixing, but added that he did not commit any wrongdoing.

    “First my father passed away in September last year. Later in January this year, my mother also expired after a protracted illness. I was under intense mental stress following the demise of my loved ones. That’s why I could not report about receiving offer of spot-fixing,” he said.

    The probe against Nasir Jamshed will be conducted in London, where the player is currently staying. He is reported to have facilitated a contact between bookie and Sharjeel and Khalid Latif.

    Shahzaib Hasan has decided to approach a tribunal after being formally charged by the PCB. He has refused to accept charges leveled by the PCB’s ACU.

    Shahzaib states that he did not provoke any player and informed the PCB of everything he knew. He also offered the PCB to assist it in tackling this menace.

    As the spot fixing erupted, Sharjeel and Latif were the first group of players to have faced suspension by the PCB.

    “Sharjeel Khan and Khalid Latif have been suspended and the rigorous and wide-ranging investigation by the PCB supported by ICC will continue as part of collective efforts to protect the integrity of the sport,” read a PCB statement after the incident.

    Doesn't make sense. According to reports Irfan admitted to be approached 5 times but still didn't inform. He told them about the approaches made to him even for international assignments.

    Shahzaib went to ACU himself about the approach. If he was enticing other players or he was doing spot fixing or even committed to do so (like Sharjeel and Khalid) it doesn't make sense to go to ACU by himself.

    So the punishment mentioned doesn't make sense at all.

    I've heard PCB also showed him fake statement of Nasir Jamshed when they haven't even questioned or recorded statement of Nasir Jamshed.

    FIA wants tainted cricketers on ECL

    ISLAMABAD: The Federal Investigation Agency urged the interior ministry to put names of cricketers suspected of spot fixing on the Exit Control List.

    The FIA, in a letter, asked the ministry to bar the players from travelling abroad till the investigation against them was complete.

    Five players – Nasir Jamshed, Muhamamd Irfan, Shahzaib Hassan, Sharjeel Khan and Khalid Latif – are currently under investigation by the anti-corruption unit of the Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB).

    FIA had issued notices to four cricketers, Sharjeel Khan, Nasir Jamshed, Khalid Latif and Muhammad Irfan for investigating allegations of spot fixing in the Pakistan Super League.

    On March 16, these players were directed by FIA to appear before the agency on March 20 and 21 to record their statement. The investigation into spot fixing scandal is being carried out by FIA on the formal request of the Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB).

    The interior minister in his last media talk had stated that FIA would continue with the PSL spot fixing inquiry irrespective of the fact the PCB was reluctant to probe the case through the agency. He was of the view that PCB can go ahead with its inquiry but FIA would see this case from a criminal aspect.

    According to some media reports, another cricketer Irfan is also facing charges of spot fixing and according to these reports the PCB has asked Irfan to furnish his reply within 14 days. Reportedly, he has also been suspended.

    PSL fixing: Suspended cricketers to record statements before FIA

    LAHORE: Suspended cricketers Mohammad Irfan, Sharjeel Khan, Shahzaib Hasan and Khalid Latif will appear before Federal Investigation Agency (FIA) on Monday to record their statements regarding the Pakistan Super League (PSL) spot fixing scandal.

    The four cricketers will record their statements in the case at FIA office located at Lahore.

    The investigation agency, in a letter, has requested the Interior Ministry to include the names of the suspended cricketers in the Exit Control List. FIA has expressed its concern that they can travel abroad during the investigation.

    Interior Minister Chaudhry Nisar Ali Khan will make the final decision on FIA’s suggestion.

    The tribunal formed to investigate the scandal will start working next week.

    It should be noted that Sharjeel Khan and Khalid Latif were the first players to be handed suspensions by Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) after reports of match-fixing circulated during the second edition of Pakistan Super League this year.

    Mohammad Irfan also came under the limelight but was allowed to take part in the competition.

    PCB charged Irfan over his alleged involvement in spot-fixing during the recently held Twenty20 league and suspended the seven-foot pacer from all formats of the game.

    Shahzaib Hasan became the fourth player to be suspended from cricket after his name was also included in the investigation. Irfan, Latif and Khan had blamed Hasan for making contacts with bookies.

    All the tainted players can also be jailed besides being suspended if found guilty in the scandal.

    Sharjeel Khan, Khalid Latif, Mohammad Irfan, Shahzaib Hasan and Nasir Jamshed were involved in alleged spot-fixing.

    The Pakistan government has barred the five cricketers involved in alleged spot-fixing from leaving the country.

    The Pakistan Cricket Board has provisionally suspended Sharjeel Khan, Khalid Latif, Mohammad Irfan, Shahzaib Hasan and Nasir Jamshed from playing any form of cricket for violating anti-corruption code during the recent Pakistan Super League.

    Jamshed is still in Britain, where he was first arrested as part of investigation into alleged corruption in the PSL.

    The interior ministry said in a statement that Irfan and Latif recorded their statements to officials of Federal Investigation Authority in Lahore on Monday. Hasan and Sharjeel are scheduled to record their statements to FIA officials on Tuesday.

    Interior Minister Chaudhry Nisar Ali Khan directed FIA officials to carry out a thorough investigation against the five players. Khan said there should be a zero tolerance policy and anybody who is involved in spot-fixing should not be spared.

    The PCB has formed a separate three-member tribunal which includes a retired judge and a retired general to conduct its own inquiry against Sharjeel and Latif.

    Last week, the cricket board provisionally suspended Irfan and Shahzaib and gave them two weeks to respond to the charges.

    Last month, Sharjeel and Latif were sent back home from the United Arab Emirates for alleged spot-fixing during the PSL’s opening match.

    The PCB’s anti-corruption unit questioned Irfan and Hasan during the PSL, but they were allowed to compete in the tournament. Both were provisionally suspended after they recorded their statements to the PCB’s ACU officials in Lahore last week.

    Its funny how the sentiments change so fast on Pakpassion.

    From ban them when they were initially suspected of fixing to massive support for them and saying PCB is trying to pressurize them, PCB is trying to elicit false guilt letters from them etc.

    All because they claim to be innocent.

    Yeah you know what?

    Lance Armstrong also denied doping a million times too.

    But you know what?

    He was guilty as hell.

    If we are going to start taking people at face value just because we detest Sethi and PCB and we really want Sharjeel back, we might as well all start playing Poker tournaments.

    LAHORE: Sharjeel Khan and Shahzaib Hasan on Tuesday appeared before federal investigation officers and recorded statements in connection with their alleged contacts with a syndicate of bookies.

    The two cricketers are among five players who have been charged with different offenses related to spot fixing during the second edition of Pakistan Super League held in Dubai last month.

    Muhammad Irfan and Khalid Latif have already recorded their statements while a fifth player Nasir Jamshed is out of country.

    Sources privy to the FIA told APP that Sharjeel and Shahzaib denied spot fixing charges. Irfan and Khalid have also pleaded innocence.

    They have made similar statements which they have already given to the anti-corruption unit of Pakistan Cricket Board, add sources.

    Pakistan Cricket Board, on the other hand, denied reports that it has submitted a formal application to the FIA for starting investigation against the cricketers allegedly involved in spot fixing.

    “We did not approach the FIA in this regard and only asked the investigation agency (FIA) to utilize its resources to get and check the record of mobile phone data of the concerned cricketers ,” Chief Operating officer, PCB, Subhan Ahmad, said.- SAMAA

    Sharjeel to challenge FIA’s jurisdiction in spot-fixing probe

    LAHORE - One of the main accused in the Pakistan Super League’s spot-fixing scandal Sharjeel Khan is to challenge the FIA’s jurisdiction to investigate the issue.

    Sharjeel nad Shahzaib Hasan appeared before the Federal Investigation Agency Tuesday and recorded their statements before the body in their defence. Two other cricketers named in the scandal, Khalid Lateef and Muhammad Irfan had appeared before the agency on Monday. Another accused, Nasir Jamshed had also been served notice to appear before FIA but as he is out of country, he failed to appear before the FIA investigation team.

    The federal agency is investigating the mega corruption scandal that rocked Pakistan cricket last month on the on the special directives of the Ministry of Interior.

    However, Sharjeel’s counsel Imran Akram said that hewill challenge the ambit of the agency regarding inquiry. He said that only Pakistan Cricket Board is authorised to look into the matter regarding spot fixing allegations.

    This is violation of the code of conduct of the board to take action against players under criminal Act, he maintained.

    The FIA claimed that it was investigating the charges on complaint of the PCB Chief Operating Officer Subhan Ahmad. However, Subhan had said he had just asked for FIA’s assistance in gathering and analysing the forensic data related to the case for establishing the evidence against the suspected players. Minister for Interior Ch Nisar Ali Khan had also held a press conference in Islamabad last week and said that although the PCB were conducting departmental inquiry into the issue yet they couldn’t register a case against the cricketers.

    He had said that the FIA after thorough probe could register a case against those who found guilty and they could be punished under the law to set an example for others to avoid such corrupt practices in future. But the PCB did not agree with Ch Nisar and Current Chief of Executive Committee PCB and PSL chairman Najam Sethi was of the view that FIA should not investigate the matter.

    The sources in the FIA said that PCB authorities were using delaying tactics in providing record to the FIA investigators. “We have not received forensic record and cell phones of players from the PCB authorities so far,” said an FIA officer on condition of anonymity.

    Well placed sources in FIA said that more persons could have been implicated in the scandal and all would be brought to justice if found involved in spot fixing during inquiry. They said that some influential quarters were backing corrupt cricketers but the interior minister has given free hand to FIA to deal the matter on merit.

    Agree.

    I'd say ban them for life and send a strong message to all international and domestic players that anyone caught fixing will not only suffer a life ban from cricket but also be charged with treason and sent to jail for a very long time.

    Sethi has been proven multiple times of lying. He is a proven liar about his overseas properties for tax evasion. And he is a proven liar about Kevin Petterson using Imran Khan's statement to not come to Lahore for the PSL2 final. So it is understandable that people will speculate if Sethi is saying truth or lying again. I for one am surprised that Sethi still has a job after caught lying

    For Sharjeel there is no such precedence that he was caught lying before like Sethi. Thats why people would believe Sharjeel more over Sethi. Sethi might be right in this case but lets wait until the verdict.

    LAHORE: The alleged spot-fixing scandal, that has engulfed Pakistan cricket team, took a new twist Thursday when investigators revealed that batsman Sharjeel Khan played two dot bowls in Pakistan Super League (PSL) at Dubai.

    According to our correspondent, all five suspended players – Sharjeel Khan, Khalid Latif, Mohammad Irfan, Shahzaib Hasan and Nasir Jamshed – who were charged with contacting bookies in the recently concluded PSL, lied in the inquiry and initially rejected all allegations.

    However, the tainted players have now confessed their wrongdoing.

    “Sharjeel has confessed that he played two dot balls that he had sold to bookies,” a source in the PCB said.

    He said Shahzaib was also in contact with bookies, adding that the player is also guilty of inciting other colleagues for fixing.

    Hasan was charged on three counts and suspended from participating in all forms of cricket.

    The PCB source said that Latif and Irfan’s contacts with bookies have also been confirmed by the investigators. – Samaa

    And Shahzaib went to ACU by himself after enticing him(as Sharjeel is a kid who doesn't know what is wrong and right) and others. PCB did not have any reports against Shahzaib. Plus, he wasn't clicked with the bookie. All makes sense Sharjeel .

    As per my understanding, he challenged FIA's jurisdiction in this case on PCB's support and admitted to his crimes. Though I don't believe he has admitted unless it's official. His career will be doomed. None of the other cricketers are charged for spot fixing apart from him.

    ISLAMABAD: The Federal Investigation Agency (FIA) and the Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) finally agreed on Thursday to work together on the PSL spot-fixing probe.

    During a meeting held on the directives of Interior Minister Chaudhry Nisar Ali Khan, senior officials of the FIA and the PCB agreed to work together to root out the menace of corruption from cricket in Pakistan and assist each other in completion of departmental, legal and criminal proceedings against those found guilty of corruption.

    The meeting followed contacts between the interior minister and Pakistan Super League (PSL) chairman Najam Sethi.

    Under the arrangement finalised during the meeting, the PCB will provide the FIA all documents and data related to criminal proceedings against corrupt elements while the latter will provide forensic and other related assistance to the former for its tribunal and departmental proceedings.

    It was decided that the FIA’s ongoing proceedings would continue, but criminal proceedings involving registration of FIR would follow the conclusion of PCB inquiry. Both sides will exchange actionable intelligence and related information about elements involved in spot- and match-fixing and other corrupt practices.

    The two sides will work with other law enforcement agencies to evolve a mechanism for rooting out corrupt practices from local tournaments. They will request the interior ministry to help eradicate the menace of betting by directing the Pakistan Telecommunication Authority to block betting websites in the country.

    The PCB will assist the FIA in finalising criminal action against all those involved in corrupt practices and actively participate in the legal process already started by the agency. Both sides will hold periodic meetings when required to assist each other in matters relating to corrupt practices and other similar cases.

    The interior minister, while talking to reporters on Wednesday, said the FIA and the PBC would work together to investigate the involvement of Pakistani cricketers in spot-fixing. Their officials would hold a meeting and decide how to proceed together on the matter. He said the extent of gambling and the number of cricketers involved in the scam were yet to be determined.

    Chaudhry Nisar said he had also asked the FIA to broaden the scope of investigation and include bookies in it. He said there had been many match-fixing incidents attributed to Pakistan in the past and in one such incident, three Pakistani cricketers had been sent to jail.

    It was in the interest of justice to take the case to its logical conclusion as the people involved in match-fixing had brought Pakistan a bad name, he added.

According to a well-informed official in the board, Jamshed will be questioned in at the Pakistan High Commission in London, where he is based these days. "He can't come to Pakistan as he is on bail and has to appear before UK's national crime agency in April in this case. But we want to also question him in detail about his role in the PSL spot-fixing scandal," the source told PTI.

    According to the official either Jamshed would be questioned on skype or the head of the PCB Anti-Corruption Unit, Colonel Azam would fly to London with a legal advisor to carry out the interview. "It will happen soon as Nasir appears to have played a key role in the spot-fixing scandal that came to our notice.
    He is the one who asked Sharjeel Khan, Khalid Latif and others to meet with the suspected bookmaker, Yousuf Anwar in Dubai last month," the source claimed.

    Media reports have said that Nasir has also agreed to become an approver in the case for the PCB but the source said he was not in a position to confirm or deny this. Jamshed, 27, who has appeared in two Tests, 48 ODIs and 18 T20 internationals is presently settled in the UK with his family but appeared in Pakistan¿s ongoing domestic season in January.

    The left-hander was also suspected of spot-fixing in the Bangladesh Premier League two years back but managed to escape without any punishment and went on to make his last appearance for Pakistan in the 2015 World Cup. The PCB has already suspended three players, Sharjeel, Khalid and Muhammad Irfan in the case and a three-member tribunal, headed by a former judge, has already been formed to hold the hearings. Both Sharjeel and Khalid have denied doing any spot-fixing for the suspected bookmaker and a yet to be named foreigner but have admitted to not informing authorities when approaches were made to them to spot fix matches in the PSL.

    Similarly pace bowler, Muhammad Irfan has also admitted getting offers and not informing the authorities about him and has also been provisionally suspended from all cricket and has been given 14-days to reply to the show cause notice issued to him in which he has been charged with violation of some clauses of the ACU code. The PCB ACU officials and legal advisor have also carried out detailed questioning of another Pakistani player, Shahzaib Hasan on Tuesday and Wednesday in Lahore. Pakistan interior minister, Chaudhary Nisar Ali Khan told the media in Islamabad on Thursday that the government was taking the PSL spot-fixing case seriously. "The PSL spot-fixing case is not just about our cricket it is also an embarrassment for Pakistan and I can tell you if anyone is found guilty of playing with the integrity of the game and image of Pakistan he can expect strong punishment," Nisar said.

    Update on this from PCB:

    The Tribunal in consultation with both parties agreed upon the procedure and timelines to be adopted under the Anti-Corruption Code. PCB shall submit its opening brief detailing its claims along with the evidence to be relied on by 14th April 2017. This time period has been agreed in order to give the PCB ACU an opportunity to travel to UK to interview Nasir Jamshed and meet with relevant UK authorities and determine if any of its findings are to be incorporated in the prosecution.
