Hampshire's Shahid Afridi to face PCB hearing

Afridi announced his retirement from international cricket on Monday

Hampshire's Pakistan all-rounder Shahid Afridi faces a disciplinary hearing at the Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) on Wednesday, reports BBC Radio Solent.

The PCB suspended Afridi on Tuesday following his criticism of the board.

It has been reported that a legal firm acting on behalf of Afridi has sent the PCB a letter to resolve the situation.

Afridi is unable to play for Hampshire since his registration to the club was removed by the England and Wales Cricket Board on Tuesday.

The 33-year-old was unavailable for Hampshire's opening FL t20 match against Somerset on Wednesday and will not feature in their second match at Surrey.

However, Hampshire are hopeful the situation will be reversed and Afridi will return to action next week.
