The ban has been perceived as too harsh by many but the board has justified it saying Jamshed was instrumental in the spot-fixing row as he was in direct contact with the bookies and lured in other players for spot-fixing.

Earlier, the player was banned for 12 months after he didn't cooperate with the tribunal.

Former Pakistan opener Nasir Jamshed has been banned for 10 years for his part in the spot-fixing scandal that marred the 2017 Pakistan Super League. There are some cases which don't make you happy despite you winning it.

PCB's Legal Adviser, Rizvi stated that Jamshed played a crucial role in the spot-fixing scandal and got others to join the same. He was later slapped with the seven violations of the PCB's anti-corruption code.

Regarded as a talented left-hander, Jamshed played two Tests, 48 one-day and 18 Twenty20 internationals for Pakistan.

Jamshed was arrested by British police in February and was provisionally suspended from all forms of the game.

'Our point was proved and accepted by the tribunal and they found him guilty on multiple charges'.

Jamshed was first banned for 12 months in December a year ago after he was found guilty of non-cooperation with the tribunal investigating allegations of spot-fixing.

"He will not be allowed to be involved with cricket or cricket administration even after his period of ban is over".

Last week, an independent adjudicator extended another Pakistan worldwide cricketer Shazaib Hasan's ban from one to four years in the same PSL spot-fixing case.
