Islamabad, June 3: Pakistani cricketer Shahid Afridi has engaged lawyers to send a letter to the Pakistan Cricket Board in a bid to have his No Objection Certificate reinstated so he can return to playing cricket for English county Hampshire.
PCB spokesman Nadeem Sarwar told the Associated Press on Friday a letter had been received from law firm Mandviwala & Zafar on Afridi's behalf.
Sarwar says the issue has been referred to the PCB disciplinary committee, which will conduct Afridi's hearing next Wednesday.
The PCB has suspended World Cup captain Afridi's central contract and all his NOCs after he criticized leading cricket officials.
Afridi retired in protest, saying he will not return to international cricket if the existing PCB structure is not changed. AP
