The Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) has banned former opener Nasir Jamshed for a period of 10 years in connection to the spot-fixing scandal that surfaced in the 2017 Pakistan Super League (PSL).

The 28-year-old Jamshed has played 48 One-day Internationals and two Tests matches and was already banned for one-year for his failure to co-operate with the investigation team in the issue.
