Neither Sethi nor board has given any statement regarding the nature of violation committed by Jamshed but it is being reported that his suspension is linked with PSL’s scandal which earlier resulted in suspension of Islamabad United’s openers Sharjeel Khan and Khalid Latif.
It is being reported that Jamshed played the role of middleman in scandal.
Earlier, in another statement, Sethi stressed that PCB’s Anti Corruption Unit (ACU) will remain vigilant and continue to protect the PSL from the menace of corruption.
“I must remind all players of their responsibilities in the fight against corruption. They must understand that if they even think they may have been the subject of a suspicious approach, it is their obligation under the PCB Anti-Corruption Code to report it to an appropriate anti-corruption official as a matter of urgency,” said Chairman PCB, Mian Shaharyar M. Khan in a statement.
