Default shoaib akthar 5 year ban reduced

Shoaib Akhtar's five-year ban has been reduced to 18 months by the PCB-appointed appellate tribunal, but he will have to pay a fine of Rs 7 million (approx US$105,000). The Pakistan board had, on April 1, banned him on various disciplinary grounds.


"The tribunal has taken the decision [to reduce Shoaib's ban] with a clear conscience and under no pressure from either the board or anyone else," Justice (retd) Aftab Farrukh, the head of the three-man tribunal, said in Karachi, adding that it was an unanimous decision.

Explaining the tribunal's verdict, Farrukh said: "We also took into consideration the past record of Shoaib and that he had publicly apologised for his behaviour and past deeds. He has promised to reform himself and we have also recommended to the board that he should be given proper counselling."


Another member of the tribunal, Naveed Chaudhry, was pushing for the complete removal of the ban, with the provision of higher fine, but was overruled. "I wanted him [Shoaib] to play but pay a hefty fine of 20 million, but the other two members thought otherwise." The third member, former Test cricketer Haseeb Ashan, did not attend the meeting, but gave his consent over telephone.

However, Shoaib's lawyer, Abid Hasan Minto, said that he may pursue a further appeal against the reduced ban. "We will take a decision after going through the long and detailed order of the tribunal."


The Pakistan board issued the ban after Shoaib, who was not being offered a contract by the PCB, lashed out at domestic tournaments, pitches and the administration in general. He made the comments while on a two-year probation after hitting team-mate Mohammad Asif with a bat before the World Twenty20 last year.

Why do you think that Shoaib's ban is reduced?

It is not out of their love for Shoaib, but just to save Asif. Basically clearing way for him.

These Pakistani cricket administrators will definitely find a way to reduce this reduced-ban and this guy will play for them within this year for sure. This will stay in Pakistan cricket years to come. If those four Pakistani players were punished by the then cricket board, probably Asif would not do this! We will see many Shoiab-like players (not performance wise) from Pakistan in future.

Predictable slap on the wrist.

Even with the stiff fine of 105K, Shoaib won't change his lifestyle nor his extra curricular activities. If he continues to play in IPL he'll be able to pay that fine off in no time and will continue to live life in his former ways. He is a waste of god given talent and loss for Pakistan cricket. Unfortunately, the money from IPL will only nurture his partying, carefree ways of living and interest him away from the cricket field.

He is an example of mismanagement and favouritism in PCB. Could happen any where if a tallent is not appreciated and mismanaged.
