PCB seeks LHC guidance in Shoaib Akhtar case

Sunday, September 21, 2008

The Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) has filed an application at the Lahore High Court for seeking guidance for allowing Shoaib Akhtar to play for Pakistan without paying the fine.

Legal advisor PCB Tafazzal Rizvi told Geo News that the Lahore High Court on July 4 had issued a stay order against 18-month ban on fast bowler Shoaib Akhtar but that did not include any stay order regarding payment of the fine and therefore he legally could not play cricket in Pakistan and for Pakistan cricket team.

However, Shoaib Akhtar had adopted the instance that he would be liable to pay the fine when the case would be decided by the court.

Tafazzal Rizvi said that it has been asked to the court in the PCB’s petition to guide the PCB whether Shoaib should be allowed to play or not without paying the fine.

The petition will be heard on September 22 by the chief justice Lahore High Court justice Syed Zahid Hussain.
