    PCB Hands Out Bans - Discussion and Aftermath

    Rana, Malik get one-year bans, Younis and Yousuf axed from teams | Pakistan Cricket News | Cricinfo.com

    Astonishing.

    How long till the backflip?

    On the positive side, reckon that it is all paving the way for one last hurrah for Shoaib!

    EDIT: County teams rubbing their hands with glee, one would imagine.

    Makes little sense to drop Yousuf as a batsman? Scapegoat anyone? Especially as the guy having a cricket ball for breakfast got only six months.....of probation.

    Pak cricket is ridiculous. Shoiab did drugs, they find a loophole to keep him playing, then he speaks out against the board and they give him a five year ban.

    Asif goes to jail in Dubai, they get him out, little to no punishment. Now something's happened with Y&Y (which probably isn't match fixing or Y&Y wouldn't be able to play lower level cricket either) and they get hung out to dry.

    No consistency and it's either one extreme or the other, they either brush things under the carpet or completely overreact.

    Haha yea, announcement that says they were merely "resting" Younis and Yousuf to come next week.

    Obviously with all the international cricket Pakistan plays these days, it would make sense to rest the senior players.....

    Yousuf got a life ban for losing a series because his keeper couldn't catch, while Afridi got six months (of probation, and not a ban) for doing something that will forever be pointed at when even the suspicion of cheating ever comes near the Pakistani cricket team. That's just beyond hilarious.

    There must have been a lot going on in Australia for this kind of response. Wish the report is made public. But seriously this would weaken the Pakistani team a lot. Yousuf and Malik won them their game against India in champions trophy. With them and Younis also gone the team looks very depleted.

    It is Pakistani cricket that is in question. No way we can say anything with certainty.
