Yousuf, Younis face a lifetime ban

The Pakistan Cricket board has cleared all the problems to the team by banning some of the major players of the Pakistani team.

PCB has banned the most experienced duos of the team- Mohammad Yousuf and Younis Khan. Both of them will end their International Cricket career as PCB has imposed them a life time ban.

Shoaib Malik and Pacer Rana Naved ul Hasan have been slammed a one year ban and will not take part in the T20 World Cup for sure. With the ban, former Captain Malik and Rana have been fined a sum of Rs. 20 Lakhs each.

While, the Akmal brothers, Umar Akmal and Kamaran Akmal have been fined for not abiding by the rules of the PCB. Umar will have to pay Rs.20 Lakhs  while his elder brother Kamaran Akmal should pay Rs.30 Lakhs.

But, luckily the star player, Shahid Afridi too escaped from the ban with a fine. He too will pay a sum of Rs.30 Lakhs for the ball tampering incident in Australia.

The PCB told:-

Yousuf and Younis were involved in fighting during the Aussie tour which had brought down the whole team. Their attitude has a trickle down effect which is a bad influence for the whole team

The penalties given now are the largest in the last decade even though Pakistan Cricket is known for banning players. 😀

Ramiz Raja on listening to this said:-

Our main problem was discipline, but barring players, I am not sure, it doesn’t look nice to just end the international careers of such talented players

“I think the PCB should have fined both Yousuf and Younis like they did to the others and set an example for other players, but banning them is a bit harsh to me.

Former Captain Inzamam-ul-Haq said:-

Banning Yousuf and Younis is totally wrong decision. The committee comprised employees of the PCB and there was no neutral person in it

“You cannot ban someone from playing international cricket on just disciplinary grounds

Rana Naved and Shoaib Malik who were part of the T20 World Cup squad won’t participate this time.

  1. Pakistan is gone! They should stop playing Cricket I guess! No more players to help them win.

    • Yeah, lets see, There Pakistani cricket is now just a junk after the Bob Woolmer incident.
      If that had not happened, it would have been a different story
