The board mentioned that Nawaz's central contract will remain under suspension during the period of ineligibility

Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) on Wednesday suspended spinner Mohammad Nawaz over his alleged involvement in the Pakistan Super League (PSL) spot-fixing scandal, Samaa reported.

Mohammad Nawaz is likely to be banned for six months from the game, and would be fined from to three to five lac rupees.

"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".

Meanwhile, PCB's attorney Tafazzul Rizvi refused to comment on the issue which was already being examined by the Anti-corruption Tribunal.

On May 15, Nawaz approached the PCB to initiate proceedings under Article 5.1.12 of the PCB Code and requested for "Agreed Sanction" a meeting to hold discussions.

Nawaz submitted his written statement admitting the charges leveled against him by PCB and appeared for subsequent meetings with PCB on 16th May 2017 to properly explain his case.

Earlier, Nawaz had confessed before the PCB's Anti-Corruption Unit that he was approached by bookmakers during Pakistan's tour of Australia, something which he failed to report to the PCB on time.

A PCB release said: "A period of ineligibility/suspension of two (02) months has been imposed on Nawaz (first month suspension has commenced from 16th May 2017), one (01) month of which will be suspended upon fulfillment of additional conditions".

The board also mentioned that Nawaz's central contract will remain under suspension during the period of ineligibility.

Nawaz is the sixth Pakistani cricketer to be suspended as a result of the PSL spot-fixing case.
