Nasir Jamshed charged in UK with bribery offences

Banned former Pakistan cricketer Nasir Jamshed has been charged in Britain with bribery offences as part of an investigation into spot-fixing.

Jamshed and two British nationals – Yousaf Anwar and Mohammed Ijaz – were served with written summonses, charging them each with two counts of bribery, the National Crime Agency said on Thursday.

The three men were arrested in February 2017 as part of an investigation that related to tournaments organised by national cricket boards from Pakistan and Bangladesh.

The three men will appear at Manchester magistrates' court on January 15 each charged with bribery and conspiracy to commit bribery.

An NCA spokesman said all of the alleged offences related to tournaments that took place overseas, including the Pakistan Super League in 2017.

Jamshed was not in the national team at the time of the alleged offences, the spokesman said.

In October, a Pakistan cricket tribunal upheld a 10-year ban on the former opening batsman over his role in various fixing scandals that hit the Pakistan Super League.
