PCB media ban hits Shahid Afridi`s `explain-all` press conference

Karachi: Pakistani cricketer Shahid Afridi was forced to cancel his scheduled press conference after the Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) asked him to avoid media interaction, according to a close aide of the all-rounder.

Afridi, who returned on Saturday after featuring for Hampshire in the Champions League T20 qualifiers, had planned to hold a talk in Karachi to ``discuss`` reasons for his poor performance at the World Twenty20, reports The Express Tribune.

"Afridi was told by the PCB not to hold any such media conference. He was reminded about the central contract clause, which bars a player from such acts without the board`s permission," the source said.

"The PCB officials did it to avoid further controversy in the World Twenty20 fall-out. It`s already unimpressed by Abdul Razzaq`s outburst regarding Mohammad Hafeez," he added.
