PCB suspends Mohammad Nawaz for two months

Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) has imposed a two-month ban and a fine of Rs. two lakhs on all-rounder Mohammad Nawaz in its ongoing probe into the Pakistan Super League (PSL) spot-fixing scandal.

"The Board has also warned the two players that they will be under observation for a month starting 18th May and reoccurrence of breach of discipline will lead to one month suspension".

"The suspension period may also be reduced if there is no additional breach of the PCB Code by Nawaz", the Board said. The PCB didn't clarify when exactly Nawaz was approached.

The cricketer told that bookmakers approached him during the Australia tour, and admitted that it was his big mistake of not reporting the incident to the board.

PCB's attorney Tafazzul Rizvi said he would not comment on the issue as it was being examined by the Anti-corruption Tribunal.
