The Pakistan Cricket Board has recovered a fine of Rs 4.5 million from former national captain Shahid Afridi. A senior official of the board confirmed that the finance department had deducted the fine amount from the dues that were to be paid to Afridi for the World Cup and tour to West Indies.
"In total the board had to pay him around Rs 5.5 million out of which we deducted the fine amount in full," the official said.
The disciplinary committee of the board had fined Afridi for several breaches of the code of conduct last month.
The fine came after a stand off between Afridi and the PCB allowing his removal as captain of the national one-day squad in May. He announced his retirement in protest and criticised the board for its conduct and not respecting senior players.
