Pakistan’s top Test run-getter and former captain Younis Khan is likely to face a ban of three to five matches for walking out of the Pakistan Cup national One-Day tournament after a dispute with the match referee and umpires.

Younis had a run-in first with the umpires over some decision and then the match referee Aziz ur Rehman summoned him for a disciplinary hearing. However, when the senior player didn’t show up, he was fined a maximum of 100 per cent of his match fees.

The incidents involving Younis and the umpires and match referee took place over the space of two matches that involved the Khyber Pakhtunkhwa team which Younis led in the tournament being organised by the Pakistan Cricket Board in Faisalabad.

“The PCB Chairman, Shaharyar Khan has taken serious notice of the incidents involving Younis and has summoned a report from the match referee,” a source in the PCB told PTI.

He said the Chairman was also trying to speak to Younis but his phones were switched off since he returned from Faisalabad to Karachi on Saturday night.
