LAHORE: The Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB)’s anti-corruption tribunal began hearing the case of Nasir Jamshed’s non-cooperation attitude towards the tribunal in the PSL spot-fixing case.

PCB lawyer Taffazul Rizvi told reporters here on Tuesday that from the PCB two witnesses, including its legal department in-charge Salman Naseer and anti-corruption department chief Col (retired) Azam, recorded their statements in detail, besides going through the cross-examining.

He said now Nasir, currently out of the national side, would produce his witnesses on Friday.

He said as Nasir was not ready to cooperate with the PCB, the charge of non-cooperation had been framed against the discarded left-handed opening batsman.

Taffazul pointed out the original charges of his involvement in the above said spot-fixing scandal would come fore, once he started cooperating with the tribunal.

He said the PCB team was ready to meet Nasir in London to get his statement on April 3 and 4, but as he did not confirmed his availability to the board in writing, the plans to send the team was shelved.

The lawyer said Nasir had also disowned his previous lawyer who had been corresponding with the tribunal from London previously.

Nasir is currently in London where he had also been grilled by the British National Crime Agency in the same case.

The British authorities had also seized Nasir’s passport, meaning he can’t travel overseas for the time being.
