Tribunal to resume proceedings on Shoaib on June 8
The tribunal has suspended Shoaib's five-year ban for a one month so that he could play in the Indian Premier League but this grace period ends on June 4 when the regular hearing against the ban was due to start.
Sources in the Pakistan cricket Board said that due to the fact that the board lawyer Tafazzul Rizvi would be going to Mumbai in connection with Mohammad Yousuf's case against the Indian Cricket League.
Besides, one of the tribunal members, Salman Taseer, had taken over as Governor of Punjab, resulting in a delay in the hearing. "Taseer has yet to inform the board whether he will continue on the tribunal while Rizvi is going to Mumbai to file an appeal in the Mumbai High Court against the order of the arbitrator who heard the ICL petition against Yousuf for breach of contract," one source said.
Sources said Justice (retd) Aftab Farrukh, who had initially been reluctant to accept the responsibility of heading the tribunal, was not satisfied with the way things had progressed so far and the inordinate delays in the hearing. "He is keen to get over this issue as soon as possible as he is a busy and senior barrister with an active practice in the Supreme Court," the source said.
Shoaib ban suspended
A PCB appeals panel on Sunday opted to suspend the fast bowler's ban, which bars him from all cricket in or for Pakistan, until June 3. PCB spokesman Amir Bilal said: "The PCB has always shown a flexible view to Shoaib Akhtar."
He added: "We said it at the outset that we have nothing personal against him. What ever happened has been done as per rules and regulations. "It is because of the chairman of PCB that he was not given a life ban and just given five years. So it was the tribunal itself which opted to give him a one month suspension so he can play in the IPL. "If the IPL gives him permission to play we have no problem."
Shoaib's ban, which he received in April for breaching the players' code of conduct, had been upheld only last Wednesday by a three-man appeal hearing in Lahore. The 32-year-old was signed by IPL side Kolkata Knight Riders for US dollars 425,000, but it looked doubtful he would be able to feature in the tournament as a player must be eligible to represent his country to take part in the league.
But this suspension frees up Shoaib to feature in the remainder of the tournament, which runs until June 1. IPL Chairman Lalit Modi told Indian news channel Headlines Today: "I welcome Shoaib to participate in the IPL. Shoaib is a great asset to cricket and will be so for his team the Kolkota Knight riders."
