Mohammad Nawaz 23 has played three Tests nine ODIs and five T20 Is for Pakistan

The Pakistan Cricket Board has banned left-arm spinner Mohammad Nawaz for two months and fined him 200,000 rupees ($1,900) for violating its anti-corruption code.

The PCB has also fined Nawaz of Rs. 0.2 million, for concealing a meeting with a bookie and not informing the board about it on time.

"The suspension period may also be reduced if there is no additional breach of the PCB Code by Nawaz", the Board said.

Nawaz, who has represented Pakistan in all forms of the game during the past year, admitted to not telling the PCB that he had been approached by a bookmaker to engage in corrupt practices. He was issued a demand notice and asked to appear before the board's Vigilance and Security Department.

"On 15th May 2017, 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", the release added.

"It is good that both Trevor and (England's director of cricket Andrew) Strauss are backing us", Woakes said. I always felt in good form and am really excited to move forward.

The anti-corruption proceedings against Nawaz began on May 8, when he was summoned by the PCB for a possible breach of the code. Nawaz is the second player to be banned by the PCB after tall fast bowler Mohammad Irfan was banned for one year.

"Nawaz in his written statement to the Board admitted that he had failed to inform the ACU about an approach made to him in Australia a year ago".

Nawaz, who is considered as one of the rising stars of Pakistan cricket, last played for his country in an ODI against Australia in January and was part of the T20 squad which toured the West Indies in March.

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