The PCB has already formed a three-member tribunal headed by a former judge to conduct a probe after the board charged Sharjeel and Khalid with spot-fixing. Pakistan’s interior minister Chaudhary Nisar Ali Khan told the media in Islamabad today that the government was taking the PSL spot-fixing case seriously. He made it clear that if any player is found guilty of spot-fixing, he could end up behind bars. Meanwhile, the Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) will interrogate Test batsman Nasir Jamshed for his role in PSL spot-fixing scandal that led to suspension of three players.

According to a well-informed official in the board, Jamshed will be questioned in at the Pakistan High Commission in London, where he is based these days. He can t come to Pakistan as he is on bail and has to appear before UK s national crime agency in April in this case. But we want to also question him in detail about his role in the PSL spot-fixing scandal, the source told PTI.
