Pakistan consider action against Zulqarnain Haider

Haider has played in one Test match and four ODIs for Pakistan

Pakistan wicketkeeper Zulqarnain Haider could face disciplinary charges for fleeing the team hotel in Dubai last November and seeking asylum in Britain.

The 25-year-old claimed he had received death threats for refusing to take part in match fixing.

Since then he has returned home and said he wants to be considered for team selection again.

The Pakistan Cricket Board will set up a disciplinary committee after Haider sent a reply to questions it sent him.

Haider fled the Pakistan camp when they were in Dubai last year for a one-day series against South Africa.

He was persuaded to return home after being given assurances about his family's safety by Pakistan's interior minister Rehman Malik.

Haider said: "The situation is also different now from when I went to London."
