Shahzad suspended by ACB
|| CF Correspondent ||
Mohammad Shahzad's contract has been "suspended for indefinite period" by the Afghanistan Cricket Board (ACB) for breaching the ACB Code of Conduct.
Confirming the suspension, ACB tweeted, "Afghanistan Cricket Board today suspended the contract of wicket-keeper batsman for an indefinite period due to breach of ACB's Code of Conduct by the player".
Shahzad has been punished for breaching ACB's policy which requires any contracted player to ask for the governing body's permission to travel out of the country.
"As per ACB's policies, any player travelling out of the country is required to seek the permission of ACB. Shahzad has not adhered to this, repetitively," the statement read.
This is not the first time when Shahzad has been punished for breaching the ACB Code of Conduct. He was sent back home midway through the World Cup 2019 after playing just two matches.
"Mohammad Shahzad has also breached the ACB Code of Conduct previously and was recently called for questioning by the ACB Discipline Committee in relation to a disciplinary matter during the ICC Cricket World Cup 2019," the statement read.
The decision to suspend Shahzad was also a result of him not attending the meeting scheduled with the "Discipline Committee" which was supposed to look into a "disciplinary matter" involving him during the World Cup 2019.
"Mohammad Shahzad did not attend meetings scheduled with the Discipline Committee on 20th and 25th of the last month."
