Juaid, Umar fined for misconduct during domestic tournament


LAHORE: Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) has fined two members of Pakistan’s Champions Trophy squad – Junaid Khan and Umar Akmal – for their misconduct during a domestic tournament last month.
Both the players were involved in a public war of words against each other last month during a Pakistan Cup match.
The PCB has imposed a fine of 50% of their respective match fees on both the players and has put the duo under observation with a warning of further action in case if reoccurrence of breach of discipline.
“The Board has also warned the two players that they will be under observation for a month starting 18th May and reoccurrence of breach of discipline will lead to one-month suspension,” said PCB in a statement.
The incident started when Umar Akmal publicly criticised Junaid Khan for missing a Pakistan Cup match in Rawalpindi.
