    [REPORTS] Afghan Cricket Board penalises Mohammad Shahzad $4000 and orders him to leave Pakistan

    Reports indicate that

    ACB has imposed a fine of PKR 3 Lakhs on Afghan player Mohammad Shehzad.

    It seems he played a club match in Pakistan without informing ACB officials.

    The board has issued a warning to him that he could be struck off from the team permanently if this happens again.

    Afghan Cricket Board penalizes Mohammad Shahzad $4000 and orders him to leave Pakistan

    According to reports, Mohammad Shahzad has been asked by the Afghan board to leave Peshawar and set up home in Afghanistan permanently or risk losing his central contract. Apparently they are annoyed that he's been playing in a local Peshawar tournament. Seems a bit of an ott reaction given that he's lived in Peshawar for most of his life.

    The political situation between the two countries probably has a lot to do with it.

    I doubt they would make such a big deal if he played in some local tournament in Delhi.

    Really sad considering Afghans got their love for cricket while living in Pakistan.

    Afghanistan cricket board ban cricket career warning Muhammad Shahzad

    Fined $4000 for playing in Pakistan tournament and also warned to back in Afghanistan in a month time otherwise he will loose central contract.
    Typical hatred mentality by ACB over PCB.

    What's the problem if he plays in Pakistan?

    However, If it turns out that he didn't bother to take permission from THE ACB before playing in Pakistan then obviously he made a mistake and should be warned or punished for it.

    How is that hatred? If he played in another country’s league without ACB’s permission, he deserves a fine. Also, the rule is for all Afghan National players to be based in Afghanistan not just for shehzad.

    Before India turned Afghanistan's darling most of Afghan players trained and played in Pakistan leagues and that's how they got the current skill. Why didn't ACB do that before?

    They can still play in Pakistan leagues with permission from ACB. There is no such rule that prohibits them from playing in Pakistan leagues.

    Just found out that the ACB isn't happy that Shahzad played in a league in Peshawar and are ordering him to move himself and his family back to Afghanistan otherwise he won't play for them ever again.

    Shahzad did grow up in Pakistan so don't y'all think the ACB is going overboard?

    ACB are now in the pockets of Indians so any Afghan player who does anything with Pakistan will be punished.


    If it's in his contract to get notice for playing elsewhere he has done wrong but the punishment & attitude shown by the ACB is harsh.

    The punishment sounds harsh, however, he must know that playing without a NOC is impermissible.

    I couldn't really care less about Afghanistan and their meaningless views, there's just so much toxicity and negativity that they emit so it's just better to just cut them out of your life. Probably one of the most childish things I've seen, an athlete can set up his home anywhere but still remain loyal for his team and fans. I wouldn't mind if certain Pak players had homes in India, it's really not that deep.

    Whereís the freedom? A lot of cricketers play street cricket all the time.

    Iíve personally seen Sarfraz Ahmed batting on the streets Karachi few months ago. Is PCB going to fine him $1000? No, because thatís ridiculous. Shame on Afghan Cricket Board!!

    Sarfaraz is a Pakistani player playing in Pakistan, also playing on the streets is different to playing in leagues which has to be cleared by the governing body, surely you can see the difference.

    Thereís hardly any difference. A club match is the same as a school cricket match. Iíve played 20 club matches, they donít mean anything. Itís basically training matches. Just the same as street cricket. Just unbelievable how they are treating the poor man

    Doesn't make hardly any difference just because you say so. Don't think you still see the difference. Are you comparing yourself with a nationally contracted cricketer?

    ACB punished contracted player for breaching the clause, why so much reaction from nuetrals here. If any player from own country plays any league outside without permission ...don't think any of these posters will take it lightly. Just hypocrisy of highest order

    Case if internal affairs ...leave it there !

    I think question is why is he being forced to leave Pakistan and to reside in Afghanistan permanently?


    He is living in Peshawar, Pakistan since a long long time. And after years of cricket ACB has now realized that he should not live in Pakistan...

    Weird.

    Shezad breach of contract broke the trust of ACB, now ball is in Shehzad's court. Choose which is more important for him ! Some unknown local league or AFG international matches.

    Surely there is something protecting Shahzad contractually, issuing someone an ultimatum on their permanent residence is not on, fine the guy all you want, if he played without informing, then he deserves a justified fine, but this?

    Lol you are ignoring the more important matter here, he has to shift his home to Afghanistan. He has almost lived whole life in Pakistan, it’s not easy to suddenly take your family, children to a whole new place just like that.

    Shehzad is no saint or gentleman like Misbha or Dhoni, he is a repeat offender got bans, fines from officials many times in his career. So AFG board knows more about its own players than we neutrals.

    There may be some solid reason apart from contract breach for AFG to take extreme action like this. We never know, that's why it's an internal affair between respective board and it's contracted player, neutrals can speculate as per own prejudice only ... Not be a FACT in my opinion

    Are you even reading the posts before replying? I have no issues with his fine because NOC is needed. I am talking about forcing him to leave his home city. They are telling all their players settled abroad to move to AFG. Even if it’s the boards decision we are allowed to disagree aren’t we?

    What are you even going on about??? They are forcing him to relocate from his home city in Peshawar, that is the main concern most people have in this thread!

    Very poor from Afghan board.And i have seen people response on social media.This afghan cricket board is immature and no one should take them seriously.
    I think we need to make a visa policy for all afghani coming here that easily.
    Shahzad may be that star in afg but our local clubs should have not invited him after watching afgnai rrsponse on media.

    They are entitled to as per their contract terms, if Shehzad didn't want to relocate can approach/appeal local courts in AFG as per labour law

    I am not supporting AFG board move to take extreme action of asking Shehzad to move out of country. Just, saying if AFG board is doing something out of it's constitutional boundary, Shehzad should approach appropriate authority to challenge the same.

    So much love from Pakistani ppers for an Afghan?

    Normally I see posts like.

    Get the Afghans out of Pakistan, they are taking our jobs, so and so.

    Now they are having a go at ACB for asking an Afghan cricketer to move back to his country. If he is living in Pakistan how can he play Afghan local tournaments?

    I know PCB said once that they canít select players who donít play Pakistan local tournament because they are based abroad ( Azhar mehmood) . It means the same thing.

    I'm pretty sure you don't need permission from your board to play in a league that is local to Peshawar. First, he was not playing a proper league like the PSL. Second, is he missing any matches for his country? Third, why order him to leave Pakistan?

    Only parent board can decide is any tournament outside is allowed to play or not by it's contracted players. Usually such small leagues are easy target for bookies and crooks to make contacts with international players. As league itself is insignificant, none of anti corruption folks will be around to oversee. Just giving different reasoning AFG board might have thought about, we will never know for sure untill Shehzad makes any statements.

    There are many jobs that require you to live in a certain place.

    Plus I don't think any team in the world picks players who don't play in their domestic competition.

    yeah um cricket boards usually don't have that requirment. Peshawar is where he grew up and his whole family lives, and it isn't too far from Afghanistan so this is an unreasonable demand. Also they could've given him an incentive to move back instead of penalizing him, people always prefer carrots over sticks and good employers know how to retain their employees.

    Shahzad does play domestics in Afghanistan.

    Why ask him to "move family" and shift "permanently" to Afghanistan?

    As long as he's there in Afghanistan during domestic season, that should be fine. ACB's going ott surely

    He wasnít selected for Pak National team even though his performances in county cricket as well as IPL etc were very good.

    The reason given was ( he is not based in Pakistan and isnít playing local tournaments)! Not being selected and getting sacked are same thing. In both occasions you are not playing!

    He isnít the 1st Afghan player. Shafiq Ulah Afghan batsmen was banned for 6 months for playing in Pakistanís local club cricket without informing ACB. I think the board has to be tough on these players to keep the dicipline in the team and the future generation of cricketers are more disciplined.

    It wasnt any proper league, it dont come under jurisdiction of PCB or Regional board.

    It was just arranged by some people and as far i know it wasnt even a Hard ball tournament

    It was a tape ball tournament.

    So there is no question of bookies e.t.c i am pretty sure they dont have such useless time to contact tape ball players or to waste their time in some galli mohalla tournament.

    Nope. I think people arguing that board is asking Shehzad to leave Pakistan permanently and shift his family to Afghanistan or otherwise quit cricket. Which seems to be very very harsh over such a tournament which is not organized by PCB or any Regional Board and as far i know it wasn't even a hard ball tournament. It was tape ball ( i might be wrong though about Tape ball thing )

    Lol asking an Afg player to appeal to a court there? Lmao. This is Afghanistan not Australia; human rights violations are commonplace there.

    This is basically ACB forcing his hand by giving him an offer he can't refuse. It's not easy when your bread and butter are on the line especially in a place like Afghanistan or even for refugees in Pakistan, where they don't have too many rights.

    Afghan government likes to make these sorts of public displays.

    Remember Sharbat Gula who was arrested in Pakistan for forging documents. Afghan government then welcomed her back with open arms and even gifted her a home. Where were they before then? Why was she living in such poverty that forced her to forge documents to somehow stay in Pakistan? Only when Pakistan arrested her, they came to her rescue lke they cared about her the whole time. Publicity stunt.

    Now Shehzad, living in Pakistan his entire life. He played a local tournament which is against his contract. which is wrong, he should be fined and issued a formal show cause notice. Instead, they are asking him to move to Afghanistan. After being in Pakistan for so long, ACB just realized he has been living there?

    Okay moving to Afghanistan is one thing, but they want him to move his family too?
    Does PCB ask Shoaib to move Sania Mirza to Pakistan? Would any other cricket board do this without political motives directed by their government? What does the family have to do with the cricketer living in the country he plays for?

    Afghan government is making political moves it seems pretty clear to me, and if you dont see this as a political move then I dont know what to say.

    I did not say u said it.I said look at the social media and know about people reaction.
    I find another indian friend not knowing about ground realities but just commenting that it may be bla bla.
    We all have seen enough of Afghani living with us for decades we know them well.
    they love to play cricket here and i see many afghni on daily basis attending coaching academies here in peshawar.
    i would urge board not to spread hatred.comments of an unknown person does not matter it matters ACB reaction on different issues.

    I just gave my opinion as per my view, you know the details from close ...fair enough. EOD player in question Shehzad is the one who knows exactly what is going on in the background with ACB. We can just speculate

    No Pakistan, no Afghanistan. Of course, Afghanistan is rigidly blind to see just as its favorite neighbor.

    That being said, its players benefit a lot from the domestic seasons in Pakistan. And their players have been improving their standards which can been curtailed if Afghanistan is discouraged from participating in Pakistan domestic seasons which only benefits their cricket.
