Afridi, Akmal likely to face disciplinary action for 'horrendous' tour Down Under

Posted By: Staff

Lahore, Mar.2 (ANI): Senior Pakistani cricketers, all rounder Shahid Afridi and wicket keeper Kamran Akmal, are likely to face some disciplinary action on the recommendations of an inquiry committee, which was formed to look into the team's horrendous performance Down Under.

According to sources in the Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB), the committee has completed its probe and is preparing its final report.

"The committee will meet again on Tuesday (today) where they will approve the report after which the PCB Chief Operating Officer (COO) Wasim Bari, who heads the committee, will submit it to the PCB chairman Ijaz Butt," The Daily Times quoted sources, as saying.

While Afridi could be penalised for his involvement in a shameful ball-tampering incident in the fifth and final one-dayer in Perth against Australia last month, Akmal is likely to face action for breaking the players code of conduct.

Akmal has also come under match fixing scanner as he dropped several catches against the hosts during the second Test match at Sydney. (ANI)
