- Ahmed Shehzad was on his way to making a comeback to cricket next week after serving a ban for failing a dope test.
- The four-month ban under the anti-doping clauses was to end on November 10, which would have allowed Shehzad to resume his cricket career by appearing in the super eight stage of the Quaid-e-Azam Trophy.
- The PCB said on Friday that although Shehzad has apologised for breaching the terms of his anti-doping ban and has also shown remorse but being a professional cricketer there is no excuse for him not being aware of rules and regulations.
- “Mindful that the instant decision will also serve as a constructive lesson to Ahmed Shehzad and other cricketers, that strict adherence to applicable rules and regulations is mandatory, a new period of ineligibility is imposed on Ahmed Shehzad which will be applicable from November 11th, 2018,” the PCB said in a statement.
- The board also procured scoresheets of the club matches the Test batsman played in Lahore, a direct violation of his ban conditions.
