Nawaz's ban is effective immediately but he will serve only one month if he cooperates with the Pakistan Cricket Board

Nawaz, 23, failed to report a suspicious approach inviting him to engage in "corrupt conduct".

He will only serve half of the ban if pays a £1,500 fine and co-operates with the Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB).

The PCB has already initiated proceedings against Sharjeel Khan, Khalid Latif, Nasir Jamshed and Shahzaib Hasan.

Nawaz, who has has played three Tests, nine one-day internationals and five T20 matches for Pakistan, admitted wrongdoing and the ban will begin with immediate effect.
