Lahore: Sacked Pakistan captain Shahid Afridi was on Thursday fined 4.5 million rupees by the PCB disciplinary committee after he pleaded guilty to breaching the Cricket Board`s Code of Conduct at a hearing here.
A reliable source in the Board said that Afridi pleaded guilty before the four-member committee to the charges of violating his central contract clauses in unilaterally announcing his retirement and criticising the PCB and its officials.
Afridi was, however, granted no-objection certificate to play in foreign leagues.
He will now be able to play for English county side Hampshire and in Sri Lanka Premier League.
"Afridi has, however, been given a no-objection certificate to go and play in foreign leagues," the source said.
