Pakistan ban Nawaz for two months

May 18, 2017

The Pakistan Cricket Board on Wednesday banned left-arm orthodox Mohammad Nawaz for two months for his failure to disclose the full details of an approach to corrupt the game.

 

He was served a Notice of Charge for a single violation of Article 2.4.4 of the board’s anti-corruption code, the board revealed in a statement.

 

The statement stated: “On May 15, 2017 Nawaz approached the PCB to initiate proceedings under Article 5.1.12 of the PCB’s code and requested for a 'agreed sanction' meeting. Resultantly, PCB required Nawaz to submit a written statement explaining his version of events; his response to the Notice of Charge; and any mitigating factors that he would like the PCB to consider, and thereafter appear before the PCB Vigilance and Security Department to answer their queries.

 

“Nawaz submitted his written statement admitting the charges leveled against him by PCB and appeared for subsequent meetings with PCB on 16th May 2017 to properly explain his case.”

 

Nawaz’s central contract has been suspended for two months, commencing May 16. He is fined $2,000 (approximately) and will participate in anti-corruption campaigns, under the auspices of PCB, which may include amongst other things, delivering lectures.

 

However, his ban could be curtailed to a month should he comply with the clauses and no further breaches (previous or present) come to light.

 

The 23-year-old had been summoned by the board earlier this month for questioning.

 

Nawaz is the second Pakistan international to be banned after Mohammad Irfan.

 

The PCB is currently investigating Khalid Latif, Sharjeel Khan, Nasir Jamshed, and Shahzaib Hasan for their alleged involvement in spot-fixing during the second edition of the Pakistan Super League.
