Afghanistan Cricket Board suspended wicket-keeper Mohammad Shahzad’s contract keeping the time period uninformed, for breaching ACB’s code of conduct.
As per the policies of Afghanistan Cricket Board, players before traveling outside the country must seek Board’s permission but Shahzad has repeatedly ruptured the policy call according to a statement by ACB.
Shahzad has been summoned for questioning by ACB discipline Commiteeearlier also for breaching code of conduct related to a matter regarding discipline during the ICC cricket world Cup 2019, informed the statement.
The statement further added that Shahzad has skipped meetings with Discipline Committee scheduled on 20th and 25th of last month.
The Discipline Committee is expected to meet after the holidays of Eid-Al-Adha to discuss Mohammad Shahzad’s breaches and come to a decision regarding the matter.
This decision was taken after Shahzad was spotted in Peshawar for a training session. According to ACB, Afghanistan provides well-established training and practice facilities for which the players needn’t travel abroad.
Shahzad has been the second-highest run-getter in ODI internationals since the 2015 world cup with 1843 runs in 55. Ali Akhil has been selected as a replacement for Shahzad.
