Islamabad, June 17: Pakistan wicketkeeper Zulqarnain Haider has been fined 500,000 rupees ($5,800) for violating the team's code of conduct when he flew to London last year without informing team management.
Haider appeared before a Pakistan Cricket Board disciplinary committee in Lahore on Friday. Its decision was announced by committee head Sultan Rana after a two-hour hearing.
Haider left the national team during the one-day series against South Africa in the United Arab Emirates in Nov. 2010 and sought asylum in Britain, saying he got death threats from match-fixers.
However, he returned home in April after assurances from the country's interior minister Rehman Malik over his security. AP
