Nasir Jamshed and accomplices to stand trial in December on bribery offences

Former Pakistan opener Nasir Jamshed and two accomplices have been given a trial date after they were accused of conspiring to offer bribes to professional cricketers.

Jamshed, 32, Yousef Anwar, 35, and Mohammed Ijaz, 33, were arrested last year.

The arrests were part of an investigation by the National Crime Agency into alleged spot-fixing in Pakistan Super League and Bangladesh Premier League.

Jamshed, Anwar and Ijaz are accused of conspiring to offer financial advantages to players in the PSL with the intention of inducing them to perform improperly.

The offences are said to have taken place between 1 November 2016 and 10 February 2017.

Anwar and Ijaz are also accused of conspiring together to bribe players taking part in the Bangladesh Premier League between 1 November 2016 and 6 December 2016.

On Monday, all three defendants entered not guilty pleas at Manchester Crown Court to the charges.

A trial, estimated to last up to three weeks, will take place at the same court on December 2.

Jamshed, of High Street, Walsall; Anwar, of Littlebrook Avenue, Slough, Berkshire; and Ijaz, of Chippingham Road, Sheffield, were all granted unconditional bail and told to attend a pre-trial review hearing on September 6.
