Opening batsman Nasir Jamshed's trouble in the spot-fixing scandal widens after he was charged with a series of breaches of Anti-Corruption Code of Conduct by the Pakistan Cricket Board.

The 28-year-old was already suspended for 12 months after he failed to co-operate with the anti-corruption unit following the spot-fixing scandal that broke out after the 2017 edition of the Pakistan Super League.

The PCB stated that Jamshed has been issued a notice indicating multiple breaches in the Anti-Corruption Code of Conduct and has given 14 days for him to respond.

“PCB remains resilient in its fight against corruption in cricket. Upon action initiated by PCB the Anti-Corruption Tribunal has already banned Sharjeel Khan and Khalid Latif,” the statement said.

"The convictions of both cricketers were subsequently upheld on appeal by an independent adjudicator".

Jamshed is currently in the United Kingdom and has failed to appear before the local tribunal related to the case.

Jamshed's international team-mates Sharjeel Khan and Khalid Latif have already been banned for five years after proved guilty of the charges of spot-fixing during the PSL.

Jamshed has overall played two Tests, 48 One-Day Internationals and 18 Twenty20 Internationals for Pakistan with his last appearance coming in 2015.
