Afridi, Umar Akmal among players penalised for poor fitness.
Shahid Afridi, Umar Akmal, Abdur Rehman and Raza Hasan are the four big names among the Pakistan players found to be below their optimum level of fitness by the PCB.
They will each have 25% of their monthly retainer docked for four months, starting with Augusts’ fee.
At the end of the four-month period, they can have their fitness reassessed.
The PCB had said this month that it was mulling handing out fines to players who failed to keep the fitness levels prescribed to them by the National Cricket Academy during a month-long camp in Lahore in May-June.
