LAHORE The Pakistan Cricket Board has lifted a 12-month ban and halved a fine on all-rounder Rana Naved. Naved was among seven players banned or fined by the PCB, after a shambolic tour to Australia earlier this year, on the grounds of misconduct and indiscipline. It is a great relief to finally be cleared of this ban and now I just want to focus on cricket, Naved told reporters here after a hearing of the appellate tribunal of the board. Naved, 32-year-old, said he was always confident he would be cleared and now his main aim would be to make a comeback to the national team. These punishments were a dark chapter of my cricket career and I want to get over it and from tomorrow, I will play domestic cricket and show my form, he said. The appellate tribunal also halved his fine of two million rupees ($23,242). Legal advisor PCB Talib Rizvi said appeals judge Irfan Qadir had lifted the ban as Naved had apologised for his conduct and served six months of the suspension. He is now free to be considered for national selection, Rizvi was quoted by a foreign news agency.
