Saturday, August 16, 2008

Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) has asked Shoaib Akhtar to pay the fine of seven million rupees before the ICC Champions Trophy.

The PCB has sent a notice to fast bowler Shoaib Akhtar asking him to pay the fine of Rs.

Shoaib Akhtar’s name has been included in the 15-man squad selected for the ICC Champions Trophy.

Talking with Reporter Syed Yahya Hussaini, PCB’s chief operating officer Shafqat Naghmi said that honouring the Lahore High Court decision we did not object on the selection of Shoaib Akhtar. However, the court did not stop us from receiving the fine from the fast bowler.

Meanwhile, the lawyer of Shoaib Akhtar said that the reply of the notice would be given after consulting with the fast bowler.

According to the PCB sources, chairman Dr Nasim Ashraf and captain Shoaib Malik are not happy with Shoaib Akhtar’s returning to the team and therefore his case is being made complicated.
