Karachi, Mar.10 (ANI): Describing the Pakistan Cricket Board's (PCB) decision to impose a life term ban on captain Mohammed Yousuf and middle order batsman Younis Khan as 'unfair' and 'unjustified', former captain Inzamam-ul-Haq has said that none of the members of the six-men committee probing the disastrous tour Down Under were impartial.

Inzamam said except Wasim Akram, who did not attend the meeting of the committee, all the committee members were biased while recommending the hefty fines and ban on the players.

"I am absolutely against these decisions, as the people who made the decisions were the Board's employees," The News quoted Inzamam, as saying.

Meanwhile, former test fast bowler Sarfraz Nawaz has welcomed the PCB's decision of banning the players.

Nawaz said the step marks the end of players' politics in the team and would serve a notice to the cricketers to refrain from breaking the rules in future.

"It's the end of players' power from our national team which is a very good sign. From now on every player will be very careful because they know that they can be fined or banned if they violate discipline," an outspoken Nawaz said.

He hailed the PCB's decision to ban both Yousuf and Younis but said that wicket keeper Kamran Akmal and fast bowler Rana Naved-ul-Hasan should also have been banned at least for a year for their misconduct.

"Younis and Yousuf had played their innings in international cricket as they have got too old, but Naved and Akaml should have also been banned for one year," Nawaz said. (ANI)
