Last year, Nasir Jamshed said in a statement
“PCB is being unfair with me. The board officials are pressurizing players to give statements against me. It seems that they just want to malign me”
Other than Jamshed, Sharjeel Khan, Khalid Latif, Mohammad Irfan, Mohammad Nawaz were also involved in the PSL 2 scandal, each receiving varying sentences in the saga.
