Sports Desk LAHORE - The Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) has recovered a fine of Rs 4.5 million from former national captain Shahid Afridi. A senior official of the board confirmed that the finance department had deducted the fine amount from the dues that were to be paid to Afridi for the World Cup and tour to West Indies. In total the board had to pay him around Rs 5.5 million out of which we deducted the fine amount in full, the official said. The disciplinary committee of the board had fined Afridi for several breaches of the code of conduct last month. The fine came after a stand off between Afridi and the PCB allowing his removal as captain of the national one-day squad in May. After he withdraw a case against the PCB from the Sindh high court, Afridi appeared before the disciplinary committee which fined him but asked the board to issue him an NOC to go and play for Hampshire in Englands domestic Twenty20 event. This is the second highest fine amount recovered from a Pakistani player by the board after the record Rs seven million that were deducted from retired fast bowler Shoaib Akhtars dues. The official said the finance department had also deducted the half a million rupees fine from wicketkeeper Zulqarnain Haider. Meanwhile, the PCB is keen to use the Decision Review System in their upcoming series against Sri Lanka in the United Arab Emirates. We are working on ways to have the UDRS in the series with Sri Lanka this year, a senior official of the board said. Admitting that the biggest problem facing the PCB in having the DRS was the absence of an agreement with its TV broadcaster, Ten Sports on its mandatory use and the extra costs involved in the exercise. Since having the UDRS is not part of our agreement with our broadcaster it means an extra cost of $40,000 to 50,000 for us, he said. As far as the use of ball tracking technology is concerned (Hawkeye) this can be used if both boards agree on using this technology although it would mean extra costs for the hosts, the official said. Our players support this technology. We had even tried to have it for our home Test series with South Africa last year in the UAE but things didnt work out with the broadcaster. But the PCB official conceded any use of the technology would be done with the approval of the Sri Lankan Cricket. Pakistan play their home series against Sri Lanka in Dubai and Abu Dhabi in October-November followed by another home series against England at the same venues in January-February 2012. The PCB has denied rejecting the ICC Task teams recommendations on improving the games state of affairs, insisting that it has only given its observations on some of the suggestions made in the report. I think everyone needs to understand we have not rejected the entire report. We have just sent our observations or reservations on some issues raised in the report, the Times of India quoted PCB chief operating officer Subhan Ahmad as sayng. We are studying the rest of the recommendations and suggestions in the report in detail and will give our response to them later, he added. The PCB official also insisted that the productive recommendations would be looked at by the board. We have no issues implementing those recommendations that benefit our cricket. In fact we are already looking at ways on how to implement the positive and productive recommendations made by the task team, he stated. Ahmad also rejected the impression that the PCB and ICC were not seeing eye to eye on the findings of the Task team. I dont think that is a correct impression. We have good relations with the ICC but being a member board I think we have the right to make our observations on things in the report that we see as redundant and inaccurate, he said. The PCB official, however, admitted that the PCB was not happy with the fact that the Task team finalised its report without paying a visit to Pakistan.
