LAHORE: Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) has lifted 12-moth ban on all-rounder Rana Naveed-ul-Hassan. As per details, an appellate tribunal, formed to hear appeals of players banned or fined after a disastrous Australian tour, removed the ban on Saturday.
Rana was among seven players who were either banned or fined by the board on the recommendations of an inquiry committee that probed the team’s poor performance in Australia and found the players guilty of misconduct and indiscipline.
Except for Rana all the other players have had their bans lifted or fines halved by the board or the appellate tribunal. The PCB had banned and fined Mohammad Yousuf, Younis Khan, Shahid Afridi, Kamran Akmal, Umar Akmal and Shoaib Malik and Rana Naved for indiscipline.
Naved had been banned from playing cricket for a year. Talking to media after the ban was lifted, Naveed said that he was thankful to the PCB for lifting the ban and that after performing well in domestic cricket he will earn his place in the national team.-SANA
