Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) on Tuesday issued a show cause notice to star batsman Younus Khan after he withdrew from a domestic tournament following a row with umpires which resulted in a fine this weekend.
The 38-year-old former national captain questioned umpiring decisions during his team Khyber Pukhtunkhwa’s (K-P) matches in the Pakistan Cup one-day tournament currently held in Faisalabad.
On Saturday match referee Azizur Rehman fined Younis 50 percent of his match fee and summoned him for a disciplinary hearing.
But Younus, Pakistan’s highest Test run-getter with 9116 in 104 matches, refused to attend the hearing and withdrew from the tournament in anger.
On Monday Younus called PCB chairman Shaharyar Khan and apologised for his behaviour, agreeing to play the remaining matches, a PCB statement said.
