Cricketer Nasir Jamshed, who was convicted of spot-fixing, is likely to be deported from England.
Nasir Jamshed is currently in jail in England. He was sentenced to 17 months in prison for spot-fixing in Bangladesh Premier League (BPL) and Pakistan Super League (PSL) matches while the Anti-Corruption Tribunal Has banned Nasir Jamshed for 10 years.
According to a popular cricket website, Nasir Jamshed will apply for release on bail on October 21 and if granted bail, he is likely to be deported from England.
On the other hand, Nasir Jamshed’s wife said that she has not received any information from the Home Office or Prison Services so she could not comment on it.
It may be recalled that Nasir Jamshed was living in Birmingham with his wife and daughter.
Nasir Jamshed was arrested by the National Crime Agency on charges of spot-fixing after an investigation. Nasir Jamshed and his associates tried to spot-fix during the Bangladesh Premier League 2016 and PSL 2017.
During the BPL, the batsman was persuaded not to score on the first two balls of the over in exchange for money.
In 2016, Nasir Jamshed told an undercover official that six BPL players were working for him and that 30,000 pounds per match was distributed among the players.
Nasir Jamshed initially admitted in court after denying bribery in the PSL, which was banned by the Pakistan Cricket Board last year for 10 years.
