“The finance department had deducted the fine amount from the dues that were to be paid to Afridi for the World Cup and tour to West Indies” Chief Operating Officer of PCB, Subhan Ahmed told a private news channel.
Last month, Shahid Afridi had been fined by the disciplinary committee of the board for several violation of the code of conduct.
Afridi had earlier announced his retirement and criticized the board for its conduct. He had accused the board of “not showing respect” to senior players, thus prompting the board to take action against him.
Afridi was later issued an NOC to play for Hampshire in England’s domestic Twenty20 event after he appeared before the disciplinary committee which fined Rs 4.5 million.
