LAHORE: All-rounder Mohammad Nawaz may be handed provisional suspension by the Pakistan Cricket Board as its Anti-Corruption Unit (ACU) widens investigation surrounding the spot-fixing scandal.
The PCB’s ACU is expected to announce its decision relating to possible anti-corruption code breaches by the cricketer on Wednesday.
According to sources privy to the matter, Nawaz and the PCB’s ACU have struck a deal, under which the all-rounder may face suspension along similar lines as faced by fast bowler Mohammad Irfan, who was suspended for a year.

During the hearing, Nawaz presented his arguments to the ACU in relation to possible breaches of the PCB’s anti-corruption code.
He was earlier issued a notice of demand under Article 4.3 of the PCB anti-corruption code.
