However, the board may not take some concrete disciplinary action since the World Cup is on our head,” sources in PCB told ARYNEWS.tv.
The five players recently appeared in an advertisement during the against Australia and New Zealand in UAE last month.
By featuring in an advertisement without board’s permission, the five players, namely Shahid Afridi, Fawad Alam, Anwar Ali, Mohammad Irfan and Wahab Riaz have violated terms of their central contract.
