June 3, 2011 - Lahore

The Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) has formed a four-member disciplinary committee for hearing a disciplinary case against former captain Shahid Afridi from June 8.

The PCB has initiated action against Afridi in response to the breaches he committed under the Central Contract signed with the board by "announcing his retirement in the manner that he did", and in "passing disparaging remarks" about the board and its officials.

The board had also issued a show cause notice to him seeking his explanation on these comments.

"After reviewing the reply from Shahid Afridi, dated 1st June 2011, to PCB's show-cause notice, the PCB has informed Shahid Afridi about the disciplinary process that will be followed from hereon," The Dawn quoted a PCB spokesman, as saying.

"A Disciplinary Committee comprising of the following has been formed in accordance with PCB's Conduct of Disciplinary Proceedings Policy 2007: Mr. Sultan Rana, Director Domestic Cricket (Chairman), Mr. Shafiq Ahmed, G.M Domestic Cricket (Member), Mr. Usman Wahla, Manager International Cricket (Member), Mr. Taffazul Rizvi, Legal Advisor PCB will assist the Committee," the PCB's press release said.

It said that Afridi has been asked to appear before the committee on June 8 at 3.00 pm at the Gaddafi Stadium in Lahore.

"The committee is empowered to issue notices to parties to appear at the hearing, to frame charges, record evidences, hear arguments and announce order in writing as soon as possible. The proceedings will be conducted in camera and no outsider will be allowed to attend," the press release added.

It said that the aggrieved party might file an appeal against an order of the disciplinary committee at the Appellate Tribunal.
