KARACHI: The Pakistan cricket board s anti-corruption unit on Monday said it had summoned Mohammad Nawaz in connection with a spot-fixing scandal during the country s Twenty20 league earlier this year.
Nawaz, 23, is the sixth player named in the spot-fixing scandal that rocked the Pakistan Super League held in United Arab Emirates (UAE).
Fast bowler Mohammad Irfan confessed to receiving offers and not reporting them to Pakistan Cricket Board s anti-corruption unit and was banned for one year, with six months suspended, and a fine of one million rupees ($10,000) in March.
Openers Sharjeel Khan, Khalid Latif, Shahzaib Hasan and Nasir Jamshed are also provisionally suspended on various charges being investigated by a tribunal.
Nawaz, a left-arm spinning all-rounder, has been part of the Pakistan team in all three formats since last year. He was part of Pakistan s Twenty20 team on the current tour of the West Indies.
If proven guilty the players face a minimum ban of five years, with a potential lifetime ban.
