A PCB official said that the governing body meeting had been postponed from March 8 to the March 22 as the disciplinary committee of the board will be able to hear the charges against the two players by the second week of this month.

"The Chairman of the disciplinary committee is abroad and will return home next week. The governing body will only meet after the disciplinary committee gives its recommendations on the two players," he said.
