The Sindh high court on Tuesday stayed the Pakistan Cricket Board's disciplinary proceedings against former captain Shahid Afridi, and asked the PCB and the Pakistan sports ministry to appear before it on Thursday.

"We filed a petition at the Sindh high court against the PCB's disciplinary committee and the punishments," Syed Ali Zafar, Afridi's lawyer said in an interview.

"The court has suspended the committee [hearings] and PCB is bound to abide by the high court. They have been asked to appear before the high court the day after tomorrow and the punishments stand null and void as of now," he added.

The PCB suspended Afridi's central contract and revoked all of his no objection certificates, which allow him to play overseas.
