Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) Security and Vigilance Department on Monday issued a Notice of Demand to all-rounder Mohammad Nawaz over possible breach of the PCB Anti-Corruption Code, it has been learnt.

According to a statement issued by the cricket governance body, "This notice of demand was issued under Article 4.3 of the PCB Anti-Corruption Code."

The notice requires Nawaz to appear before the PCB Security and Vigilance Department for an interview to investigate possible breaches of the PCB Anti-Corruption Code by the accused, read the statement.

The recent step taken by PCB was "in continuation of its fight against the menace of corruption in cricket", it added.

There were speculations floating around claiming Nawaz had failed to report bookies who approached him over possible match-fixing.

However, the cricket governance body refused to give any further comments given the sensitivity of the issue.

As criticism against alleged corruption of Pakistani cricketers grew, PCB launched a crackdown in an attempt to eradicate the menace from the sport and put those found guilty to task.

Along with Nawaz, cricketers including Khalid Latif, Mohammad Irfan, Shahzaib Hasan, Nasir Jamshed and Sharjeel Khan have recently found themselves in the path of PCB's anti-corruption and vigilance codes.
