Karachi - Suspended Pakistan cricket star Shahid Afridi on Tuesday filed a petition in court against sanctions imposed on him by the Pakistan Cricket Board, his lawyer said.

"We have filed a petition in the (southern province of) Sindh High Court against the sanctions on our client Afridi and have appealed for a stay order against the punishments against him," lawyer Mahmood Mandviwala said.

Afridi has announced his retirement from international cricket to protest against being replaced as one-day captain last month.

But the PCB said Afridi breached the players' code of conduct by announcing his retirement and levelling allegations against the Board.

In punishment, the PCB suspended his central contract, revoked all his no-objection certificates which would have allowed him to play abroad and served him with a show-cause notice last week.

They also formed a three-man disciplinary committee and ordered Afridi to appear before it on Wednesday.
