PCB fines Afridi 4.5 million rupees, grants NOC

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.
