A Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) anti-corruption tribunal on Friday handed Nasir Jamshed a 10-year ban after he was found guilty of violating several clauses of the PCB's Anti Corruption Code during the second edition of the Pakistan Super League (PSL).

He will not be given any role in cricket or management, the tribunal announced. The judgement of the case had been reserved on Aug 6.

Jamshed was found to be a central figure in the PSL spot-fixing scandal that surfaced in 2017 during the series' second season and was charged with spot-fixing, ensuring for betting, failing to disclose offers of money, accepting offers of bribe, consenting to corruption and encouraging other players.

Previously, an Anti-Corruption Unit (ACU) had banned the tainted cricketer for a year for non- cooperation with the PCB during the spot-fixing probe. The ban ended in February this year.

However, Jamshed had claimed that the charges against him in the PSL spot-fixing scandal were "flimsy and ridiculous".

In addition to Jamshed, cricketers Khalid Latif, Sharjeel Khan and Shahzeb Hassan were also handed punishments in the PSL spot-fixing case. Earlier this month, the ban on Hassan was extended to four years.

Fast bowler Mohammad Irfan had also served a punishment for involvement in the scandal.
