The 23-year-old opening batsman “admitted his mistake” and apologised to the Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB). “Imam was remorseful and has apologised for what all has happened and admitted his mistake. He said the matter got out of hand due to a misunderstanding,” geo.television quoted PCB Managing Director, Wasim Khan as saying.
“But we told him in clear terms that, although this is his personal and private matter, we expect our players to adhere to the highest standards of ethics and discipline,” he added.
Wasim Khan added that the board takes these kind of issues very significantly, saying centrally contracted gamers are anticipated to be extra accountable.
“We don’t like to comment on personal affairs of a player but we expect that our centrally contracted players will also show more responsibility being ambassadors of Pakistan cricket and Pakistan,” Khan stated.
“Hopefully we will not see such incidents again,” he added.
