The disciplinary committee of the Pakistan Cricket Board has fined Shahid Afridi four.5 million rupees for violating its code of conduct and restored his eligibility to play abroad.

PCB legal adviser Taffazul Rizvi announced the judgment of the committee on Thursday and said Afridi has accepted the decision. Rizvi said Afridi had "pleaded guilty and failed to wish to contest."

"The committee conjointly suggested his NOCs to play abroad be restored, that the Pakistan Cricket Board has endorsed," said Rizvi.

The NOCs are given despite his refusal to apologies for alleged violations and admittance that he had committed mistakes.

Afridi conjointly said he’s in "no mood to play international cricket" and is sticking along with his call to retire. He briefly spoke to the media.

Earlier nowadays Afridi told reporters once the hearing that "I admit I actually have created mistakes however the circumstances forced me to try and do things. however I actually have not apologized to the committee".

Last month, Afridi retired in protest once he was faraway from the ODI captaincy and breached the code of conduct by criticizing prime officers of the PCB.
