Life ban for Yousuf, Younis over Oz tour

New Delhi: Pakistan Cricket Board imposed life bans on former captains Mohammad Yousuf and Younis Khan as they took action on the players' poor performance on the recent Australian tour.

The probe was carried out after open rebellion by several players during the Australian tour.

Another former captain Shoaib Malik and Rana Naved were banned for a year and all-rounder Shahid Afridi has been fined for involvement in ball tampering.

Both brothers Kamran and Umar Akmal have been put on probation for six months.

Earlier, the PCB inquiry committee had recommended disciplinary action against five players including former captain Shoaib Malik and Shahid Afridi.

The captain, coach and the manager on the Australian tour had reported Malik and Rana for misbehavior and not cooperating with the management.

He said the inquiry committee had also advised the Board to make no compromise on discipline and not select any player who was found guilty of violating the code of conduct.
