LAHORE - Pakistan's runaway wicket-keeper Zulqarnain Haider will appear before the Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) disciplinary committee on Friday. In a long awaited hearing Zulqarnain will try to convince the committee that his decision to desert the national team in Dubai and flee to London was justified as he was under threat from alleged match-fixers. The wicket-keeper only returned to Pakistan in late April after getting assurances of security from Interior Minister, Rehman Malik. The PCB has told Zulqarnain to face disciplinary proceedings for violating his central contract and to appear before the disciplinary committee on Friday and it is the committee that will now decide his fate," a PCB official said. He said the Chairman Ijaz Butt had also ignored attempts by Zulqarnain to seek a one-to-one meeting with him. "The matter is now in the hands of the disciplinary committee as Zulqarnain has clearly violated the terms of his contract," one official said. The board is also upset with Zulqarnain's latest claims in the media that some Pakistani players involved in spot-fixing. The channels quoted Zulqarnain as saying that he would soon approach the Supreme Court for justice and give the court the names of the alleged players involved in corruption. While the PCB has released partial payment to Zulqarnain of his match fees and other payments on humanitarian grounds, it has refused to clear him to play domestic cricket despite repeated pleas. The wicketkeeper made his Test debut against England last year at Edgbaston and scored a fighting 88. Sources said the disciplinary committee is expected to record statements of some Pakistan players who were in the team that played against South Africa and manager, Intikhab Alam PCB waits letter from Afridi for NOC: Meanwhile, the Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) is waiting for a written statement from retired captain Shahid Afridi in which he will accept his guilt of violating the board's code of conduct before he is issued a NOC to go and play abroad in foreign T20 leagues. Well-informed sources in the government and the board said on Wednesday that as part of the deal that Afridi reached with the chairman of the board, Ijaz Butt he has to give an acceptance statement admitting he was guilty of violating the board's disciplinary clauses for players. "Basically Afridi has fulfilled the other parts of the commitment he made with Butt during their meeting in Islamabad on Tuesday," one source disclosed. "The board is now just waiting for his acceptance statement after which they will fix the date of the disciplinary hearing. Although Afridi's lawyers have informed the board he (Afridi) is willing to even appear before the committee on Thursday at short notice," the source added.
