Nasir Jamshed, who is at the center of the spot-fixing controversy, has alleged that the PCB is pressurising players, alleged of corrupt practices during the PSL II, to give statements against him.
In a video message released on Twitter on Wednesday, the Pakistan international claimed that the cricket board is being unfair to him.
“The PCB should present evidences in the media rather than maligning me,” Jamshed, who has donned Pakistan colours in 68 international contests, said, adding that the board lacks professionalism due to which his personal life was being affected.
He threatened to take the PCB to the court. He said: “I've had discussions with my lawyer and we have decided to initiate legal proceedings against the PCB.”
This is Jamshed’s second video message since being named in the spot-fixing scandal in February. In his previous message, the left-handed opener said that he was ready to cooperate with the PCB after the NCA’s proceedings to concluded.
Jamshed, along with an unidentified man, was arrested by the local authorities in England after the scandal broke out. However, he was granted bail later.
Pakistan banned Mohammad Nawaz on Wednesday and fined him approximately $2,000 for not disclosing full details of an approach.
Mohammad Irfan has already been banned for a year for failing to report multiple invitations to corrupt the game.
The PCB is currently investigating Sharjeel Khan, Khalid Latif, and Shahzaib Hasan.
