Afridi hearing set for today

Pakistan face a nervous wait ahead of today’s hearing against Shahid Afridi after he was charged with breaching the ICC code of conduct.

The all rounder was charged by the ICC, after he took a swipe at a spectator with his bat during the first ODI between South Africa and Pakistan at Centurion.

It appears that Afridi reacted angrily to something the spectator had said in his direction as the all-rounder was walking back to the changing rooms after being dismissed.

The hearing will be held by match referee Chris Broad. If found guilty of the Level 3 offence which prohibits any “conduct unbecoming…which could bring or the game of cricket into disrepute,” Afridi could face a ban of up to four Test matches or eight one-day matches.
