Even if you put Shoaib Akhtar in a straight tube for 12 years, he would even then remain what he is. As soon as he has got himself some relief and a last chance to revive his dwindling career by the verdict of Lahore High Court, he finds himself again in brawls and in new rounds of controversies.
Now it’s all about the petty sum of 7 million (for Shoaib and PCB). Pakistan Cricket Board wants to sooth it’s bruised ego by making Shoaib Akhtar pay the fine right away, while Shoaib wants to have his ego intact by not paying it now. So PCB has decided to not to include the controversial bowler in the initial list of the players for the upcoming uncertain Champions Trophy.
According to the media reports, legal advisor to PCB Tafazzul Rizvi said that chief justice Syed Zahid Hussain has maintained in his verdict that would have to pay the fine. Therefore, if he is included in the team without paying the fine it would be considered as the contempt of the court, so this is inevitable for Shoaib Akhtar to pay the fine if he wants to play for Pakistan.
