ICC slaps 2-match ban on Shahid Afridi

PERTH: Pakistan T20 skipper Shahid Afridi is set to miss the only Twenty20 clash with Australia after he was banned for two Twenty20 matches on Sunday.

The International Cricket Council found Afridi guilty of tampering the bill during the final one-day international against Australia.

Afridi admitted the charge, after which the match referee put a two Twenty20 matches ban on him.

Coach Inftikhab Alam described the ban as ‘unfortunate’.

It may be reminded here that Shahid Afridi was seen tampering the ball with his teeth during the final ODI match.
