LAHORE – Former Pakistan opener Nasir Jamshed has been terminated by his department, National Bank, after he was named in PSL corruption case.
Nasir was provisionally suspended by the Pakistan Cricket Board (CPB) from all forms of cricket after he reportedly violated board’s anti-corruption code.
The PCB has yet to officially elaborate the nature and timing of violation but it is understood that it is connected with the recent corruption scandal in Pakistan Super League (PSL) which led to the suspension of Khalid Latif and Sharjeel Khan.
