Lahore, Mar.4 (ANI): A Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) inquiry committee formed to look into the national team's disastrous performance Down Under, has proposed hefty fine on wicket keeper Kamran Akmal and all-rounder Shahid Afridi for violating the player's code of conduct during the winless tour.

According to sources, the inquiry committee has recommended hefty fines on both players, but the final decision in this regard would be taken by PCB Chairman Ijaz Butt.

"The recommendations are for hefty fines on both players but PCB chairman Ijaz Butt has the authority to revise the recommended fine amount or even decide against imposing the fines," The Daily Times quoted insiders, as saying.

While Afridi could be penalised for his involvement in a shameful ball-tampering incident in the fifth and final one-dayer in Perth against Australia last month, Akmal is likely to face action for breaking the players code of conduct.

Akmal has also come under match fixing scanner as he dropped several catches against the hosts during the second Test match at Sydney. (ANI)
