Controversial fast bowler Shoaib Akhtar appears to be in deep trouble as the Pakistan Cricket Board has submitted a strong chargesheet against him, while coach Geoff Lawson has asked the PCB not to consider the maverick speedster for Test matches.

In a chargesheet submitted to the disciplinary committee hearing the case against Akhtar, the PCB has described the bowler as a lawbreaker in the game.

According to sources, the PCB has written that Akhtar has a record of breaching the terms of his central contract and he has remained in the spotlight for wrong reasons.

To make matters worse for him, Lawson has also suggested that the express bowler be selected only for the ODIs as he was not reliable for Test cricket.
