The Cricket Board of Afghanistan (ACB) has suspended wicketkeeper-batsman Mohammad Shehzad from all types of cricket for a period of 12 months for violating the disciplinary rules of the ACB. Earlier, Shahzad’s contract was “indefinitely suspended” for breach of the ACB code of conduct, but the Afghanistan Cricket Board (ACB) on Sunday fixed his suspension period, which will now last for a year.
The ACB stated, “Shahzad has violated the ACB’s disciplinary rules and regulations in the past and has not complied with the ACB’s code of conduct for players. He has several times taken ACB’s policy to seek players’ permission before doing so.” Has traveled out of the country in violation. “
The ACB has well-equipped training and practice facilities within the country and Afghan players are not required to travel abroad for such purposes. Shahzad, who lives in Peshawar, Pakistan, was repatriated during the World Cup 2019 after playing just two matches.
Last year, the ACB fined Shehzad and asked him to risk permanently relocating to Afghanistan or terminating his contract.
