Lahore: The Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) yesterday banned all-rounder Mohammad Nawaz for one month and fined him approximately $2,000 after he admitted failing to disclose an approach by a bookmaker to engage in corrupt practices.
He becomes the second casualty of a wide-ranging investigation after fast-bowler Mohammad Irfan was banned for six months with six suspended and fined one million rupees ($10,000) after admitting to similar charges.
Four other players – Sharjeel Khan, Khalid Latif, Nasir Jamshed and Shahzaib Hasan are also under investigation by a three-member tribunal and are provisionally suspended.
The cases pertain to corruption in the Twenty20 Pakistan Super League (PSL) held in United Arab Emirates in February to March this year.
