Islamabad - Pakistan Twenty20 captain Shahid Afridi has filed an appeal after being fined by the Pakistan Cricket Board for ball tampering in the one-day international series against Australia in January.

PCB legal adviser Taffazul Rizvi said on Tuesday that Afridi is the fourth player after Kamran Akmal, Umar Akmal and Rana Naved to file appeals against fines for ill discipline or poor performance.

Afridi was fined three million rupees ($35 000).

Former captain Shoaib Malik, who was banned for one year and fined two million rupees ($23 500) for ill discipline, is yet to file an appeal.

Younis Khan and Mohammad Yousuf, who were banned for indefinite periods due to ill discipline, have also not yet filed an appeal.
