International career

Nasir Jamshed will not play against India in the ICC Cricket World

In the 2008 Asia Cup, Jamshed scored two consecutive half centuries, 53 runs against India before he was retired hurt and 52 not out against Bangladesh, at the National Stadium, Karachi. From these performances, he has really strengthened his position as an opener in the Pakistani ODI squad. During the Asia Cup 2008 Jamshed's fitness was questioned by the commentators and he visibly seemed over weight. This lack of fitness also lead him to miss the following Twenty20 tournament in Canada, and a 3 match ODI series against the West Indies. His exclusion from the national team continued in January 2009 when he was passed over for Khurram Manzoor during the Sri Lanka ODI series.

He made his first one day international century against India on 18 March 2012 in Bangladesh at Sher-e-Bangla National Stadium Mirpur at the 2012 Asia Cup. He scored 112 off just 104 balls and was involved in a 224 run partnership with Mohammad Hafeez, which is the second best opening partnership for Pakistan against any team and first best partnership against India in one day internationals. They eclipsed Aamer Sohail and Saeed Anwar's record of 144 runs which was made in 1996.He had a poor ICC World Cup 2015 in which he was dismissed in the single figures thrice and frequently struggled with the pull shot.

T20 Career

In 2009 he along with veteran Abdul Razzaq set the highest 3rd wicket partnership ever in any forms of T20s(162)

Fixing allegations

In February 2017 he was provisionally suspended under the PCB's Anti-Corruption Code as part of an ongoing investigation of the 2017 Pakistan Super League.
