Summary

  • KABUL: Trouble-prone Afghanistan wicketkeeper Mohammad Shahzad has been fined after he was caught playing for a Pakistani cricket club without permission, an Afghan official said on Monday.
  • Shahzad has been ordered to pay about $4,400 and return to Afghanistan after taking part in a local tournament in Peshawar, a Pakistani city near the Afghan border.
  • Shahzad will still go to India for a training camp before Afghanistan’s series against Bangladesh and a Test match against India in June, Stanikzai said.
  • “If this is repeated again, next time he might be banned from playing cricket,” Stanikzai added.
  • “We have a strong structure for our domestic cricket so we do not see the need for people to go and play for clubs outside Afghanistan,” Stanikzai said.
