Breaking: Nasir Jamshed arrested in London |

LONDON – Pakistan’s opening batsman Nasir Jamshed was arrested in London alongside the bookie Yousuf. Both are allegedly involved in PSL corruption.

According to initial details, Britain’s National Crime Agency (NCA) arrested Nasir and the bookie Yousuf, Express News reported.

Jamshed, who is accused of referring Islamabad duo Sharjeel Khan and Khalid Latif to Yousuf, has been provisionally suspended from all forms of cricket on Monday by the Pakistan Cricket Board.

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.

Nasir Jamshed was reportedly alleged in the media as the player who connected players with suspected bookies.

The PCB on Friday had suspended Khalid Latif and Sharjeel Khan after an initial inquiry into attempts by an international syndicate to corrupt Pakistan Super League.

Nasir has represented Pakistan in two Tests, 48 ODIs and 18 T20is.

According to the representative of the NCA, Jamshed and Yousuf have been released on bail and asked to report to the agency in April.
