PCB ‘punishes’ Ahmed Shehzad over breaking dressing room glass
The Pakistani opening batsman reportedly got furious after failing to scored a century in the Pakistan Cup tie against Balochistan and broke the glass of a dressing room in the stadium.
Ahmed Shehzad managed to score 79 runs from 70 balls after hitting 10 boundaries in the game.
Pakistan Cricket Board took notice of the incident and has asked Shehzad to get the glass fixed with his own match fee.
Ahmed Shehzad, speaking exclusively with ARY News, has denied that he broke the glass intentionally. He also said that the PCB had not conveyed anything to him in this regard.
He also said that batsmen, most throw their bats into their bags. The batsman said that his cricket bag was kept against the glass in the dressing room. “Maybe it happened when I threw my bat into the bag which also hit the glass in the process.”
It should be noted that this is not the first time Shehzad has been in the news over his acts. He was caught doing an “unexplainable” dance during a Pakistan Super League (PSL) match.
In 2013, Shehzad was fined 50 percent of his match fee by the International Cricket Council (ICC) over pushing Sri Lankan cricketer Tillakaratne Dilshan.
