Khan had a confrontation with the umpire during a Pakistan Cup game. The match referee had fined him over his actions after which he quit the match midway through the tournament as a sign of protest.
The cricketer did not reply to the notice served by the match referee neither did he appear before the disciplinary committee to explain his conduct.
