PCB lifts ban imposed on Rana Naved

Lahore: Pakistan Cricket Board(PCB) on Saturday lifted a one-year ban imposed on pace bowler Rana Naved ul Hasan.

The board has also reduced the fine to rupees 10 lakh from its original fine of 20 lakh.

Hasan was one of the seven Pakistani cricketers who were banned by the PCB after Pakistan's disastrous tour of Australia earlier this year.

PCB had lifted bans imposed on all the players except for Hasan.

Hasan, who had appealed against the ban, appeared before an appellate tribunal to hear his appeal.

"I take everything positively and I consider myself very lucky. I will make every effort to return to the Pakistani side," Hasan said.

He met with the PCB chairman Ijaz Butt last month in which he apologised for his conduct and behaviour on the Australian tour that eventually led to his ban and fine of two million Pakistani rupees.

The 32-year-old pace bowler, who has been put of international cricket in the past six months or so due to ban said he played in domestic cricket to get back to the national side.

"There is a crisis in the Pakistani team and I will make every effort when the selectors choose players again. I hope they will select me. The Board accepted my plea and I hope to play in a domestic T20 tournament coming up," he said.
