PCB banned Asif Afridi on Corruption Charges

The Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) has announced that Khyber Pakhtunkhwa left-arm spinner Asif Afridi has been provisionally banned from September 12. Asif Afridi has been suspended under Section 4.7.1 of the PCB Anti-Corruption Code, the board said in a statement released on Tuesday. He will not be able to participate in any cricketing activities until the investigation by PCB’s anti-corruption unit is over.

The PCB also said that Afridi has been issued charge notices for two violations under Section 2.4 of the Code and has 14 days to respond to the charges.

As this is an ongoing investigation, the PCB will not comment further pending the outcome of the case.

The 35-year-old bowling all-rounder was in Pakistan’s ODI and T20I squads in the last home series against Australia but did not make it to the best XI.

Asif Afridi made his debut in domestic cricket in 2009. But still could not get a place on the international team. This year, Asif was playing for Multan Sultans in the Pakistan Super League.

A look at Asif Afridi’s domestic record shows that he has taken 118 wickets in 35 first-class matches, while he has 59 wickets in 42 List A matches. He has also scored 1303 runs as a batsman in first-class cricket. And in T20 cricket he hunted 63 wickets in 65 matches. He scored a total of 440 runs at a strike rate of 134.96.
