Default Shoaib likely to face disciplinary action

Shoaib Akhtar is facing possible disciplinary action after reports alleged he may have feigned an injury to avoid bowling on the third day of the Rawalpindi Test because of differences with Inzamam-ul-Haq. In a telephone conversation he had with Rashid Latif, Shoaib suggested that he wasn't happy with Inzamam's field settings for his bowling.

Latif disclosed the contents of the phone call on a local channel on Wednesday night, where he claimed that some other players had also complained about problems within the team. A local newspaper reported that some team members were not convinced of Shoaib's injury, and also revealed that X-rays on his injured wrist showed no damage.

When Shoaib subsequently came out on Friday to bat, signs of a side strain or wrist injury were not immediately apparent as he blasted 28 off 14 balls, with four fours and two sixes. The cameo prompted Inzamam-ul-Haq to claim that he "was surprised at the way Shoaib had batted". On being questioned about Shoaib's alleged phone call to Latif, Inzamam said that an inquiry would be held and, depending on the result, disciplinary action would be taken against Shoaib. "If something like this has happened then we will take action against it. This sort of behaviour can cause disruption within the team. There will be an inquiry into the matter and action will be taken." Inzamam did say, however, that there was no question of differences between him and Shoaib.

My bad. Mistakenly posted in Bangladesh Cricket Forum. Moved it to the International Forum. Thanks for pointing that out.

What happened to the vaunted Pakistani seam attack during the third test? Is there no one to back up Shoaib and Sami if #3 and #4 go down? Was this debacle preferable to letting Waqar Younis have another crack at it. I think this large stable of relentless, sound barrier breaking PAK pacemen is just a lot of hogwash. Now the finger-pointing has begun. It'll be interesting to see if Shoaib Akthar (a.k.a. solid gold dancer) survives the morning after purge.
