“PCB is being unfair with me. The board officials are pressurising players to give statements against me. It seems that they just want to malign me,” Jamshed said in a video message on social media.

He further added, “If they really have any evidence against me, I challenge them to present it to the media. Such allegations are affecting my personal life.”

He lastly threatened the Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB), saying he would take the board officials to the court, “My lawyers are looking into the details and we will take PCB to the court to prove their allegations against me.”

However, according to the PCB, Nasir Jamshed played a key role in the spot-fixing scandal which hit the Pakistan Super League tournament earlier this year. Nasir was even arrested by the UK’s National Crime Agency (NCA) in February, though was later released on bail.
