Lahore, Mar.31 (ANI): The Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) is ready to remove all the reservations of banned former captain Younis Khan, which he had raised in his letter to the board.

Sources in the PCB said that the board has advised Younis's counsel to appeal against the indefinite ban imposed on him in accordance with the board's law, The News reports.

Earlier, PCB's legal advisor Tafazzul Rizvi had said that the board is considering the written communications from all rounder Shahid Afridi and former captain Younis Khan as 'letters' and not as appeals against the penalties slapped on them.

Rizvi, said none of the players have filed 'proper' appeals with the board against their punishments.

"What Younis and Afridi have sent are letters in which they have outlined their grievances over the penalties imposed on them and asked for the reasons behind the punishments," Rizvi said.

He said that as per the PCB's constitution if a player files a proper appeal against his ban or fine, it would be presented before an appellate tribunal formed by the board to hear the grievances.

"The PCB will at best act like a post office and the appellate tribunal will decide on the merit of the appeals," Rizvi said.

The PCB has given 30 days time to players to appeal against the ban and fines imposed on them. (ANI)
