Cricket news - Nasir Jamshed pleads guilty in bribery case

Jamshed will be sentenced on February 9, 2020.

Jamshed will be sentenced on February 9, 2020.

Former Pakistan opener Nasir Jamshed has pleaded guilty to bribery charges that were levied on him in December 2018 by British's National Crime Agency (NCA).

"Three men have been charged with bribery offences as part of an NCA investigation into cricket match spot-fixing in tournaments organised by national cricket boards from Pakistan and Bangladesh," the British agency said last year.

The other two individuals have been identified as Yousef Anwar and Mohammed Ijaz who admitted to have tried to bribe players with the intention of getting them to under-perform in the PSL.

Jamshed, who was arrested along with Anwar and Ijaz, was seen as the 'linchpin' in the spot-fixing scandal by the PCB, and slapped with a ten-year ban. Appearing in court in Britain in January 2019, Jamshed had denied any wrongdoing, before changing his plea to being guilty, of conspiring to bribe fellow cricketers during the PSL, in a hearing in Manchester on Monday.

According to an AFP report, the prosecutor at the hearing said that a policeman had gone undercover, pretending to be a member of a betting syndicate. He discovered an attempted fix in the Bangladesh Premier League in 2016 and a fix in PSL 2017.

Jamshed is said to have been a target of bribery during the tournament in Bangladesh, before he sided with the corrupt individuals and attempted to sway other players to spot fix in a PSL game between Islamabad United and Peshawar Zalmi in Dubai on February 9.

February 9 2020 has been set as the date for the sentencing of the trio.
