Karachi, Mar.31 (ANI): Newly appointed Pakistan T20 captain Shahid Afridi has asked the Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) to review the fine of three million rupees slapped on him for ball tampering during the last one-day international of the five match series in Australia.
Afridi was banned by the International Cricket Council (ICC) for two T20 matches for the 'shocking' ball chomping incident, and said one can not be punished twice for a offence.
"Two punishments can not be given for one offence. I met PCB Chairman Ijaz Butt and requested him for revoking the fine. I am just lodging a personal appeal with the PCB Chairman for revoking the fine," he commented. I am not challenging PCB authority," The Dawn quoted Afridi, as saying.
Afridi said he was eagerly looking forward to the ICC World T20 Championship in the West Indies, and would give his best to help the team defend the title.
"Leading the team is a great challenge and I am looking forward to successfully defend the title in West Indies," he said. (ANI)
