    April Fools IMO.
    Rejecting 'analysis by checklist' and 'skill absolutism' since Dec '09
    'Stats' is not a synonym for 'Career Test Averages'

    Nah, I don't think you have. It's just that you originally posted the thread with the sum total of "..." in the opening post. Hardly compelling evidence of said banning.

    But now there's a link.

    Yeah, actually had to edit it 4 times I messed it up so much, LOL

    Got a bit excited about being the one to break such a potential bombshell on CW

    From same link as original post:

    The 32-year-old, who was on a two-year probabtion for attacking teammate Mohammad Asif with a bat, was charged with publicly criticising the PCB.

    Chairman Nasif Ashraf said: "The board has lost confidence in Shoaib Akhtar.

    "We therefore felt that his presence in the field was damaging to the team and the image of Pakistan cricket."

    I think this is the straw that broke the camel's back. Akhtar has been nothing but trouble for some time now.

    Drug taking - A slap on the wrist & small ban.

    Attack a teamate with a cricket bat - Reprimand & 2 year probation

    Criticize the board in public - 5 year ban (effectively career ending).

    Yeah a bit OTT for me
