Shahzad suspended for one year from all forms of cricket
Afghanistan opener Mohammad Shahzad has been banned for one year by the Afghanistan Cricket Board (ACB) from all forms of cricket.
Things starting to get worse for the Afghanistan wicket-keeper batsman as he has been suspended for one year from all forms of cricket for violating ACB’s code of conduct. He was earlier suspended indefinitely, but the board announced on Sunday that he has to suffer a suspended of one year.
ACB’s official statement:
“Shahzad has violated ACB’s disciplinary rules and regulations previously as well and has not adhered to ACB’s code of conduct for players. He has travelled out of the country several times violating ACB’s policy for players to seek its permission before doing so.”
“ACB has well-equipped training and practice facilities within the country and Afghan players do not require to travel abroad for such purposes.”
Shahzad was sent back from England during World Cup stating injury issues. But the 31-year old batsman informed that he had no injury after he returned home. He also cried and put out a video on his social media channels that he was completely fit to play but was still sent home by the board. This claim was later ruled out by ACB CEO Asadullah Khan.
