Lahore, Mar.31 (ANI): The Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) has revoked the three million rupees fine slapped on T20 captain Shahid Afridi for his 'shocking' ball chomping act in Australia.
Earlier, Afridi, who was banned by the International Cricket Council (ICC) for two T20 matches for ball tampering, had asked the PCB to review the fine, saying 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. I am not challenging PCB authority," Afridi had said.
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)
