Afridi to get PCB clearance
Islamabad - Local media say retired captain Shahid Afridi will be reissued clearance to play overseas from the Pakistan Cricket Board after meeting with chairman Ijaz Butt on Tuesday.
Geo Television says Afridi will in return withdraw his petition in the Sindh High Court, which was filed against the PCB decision to form a disciplinary committee and revoke his No Objection Certificate.
PCB spokesman Nadeem Sarwar neither denied nor confirmed Tuesday's meeting.
Afridi retired from international cricket in protest after he was removed as ODI captain last month and criticised top PCB officials.
The PCB suspended Afridi's central contract and revoked his NOC, which stopped him from playing for Hampshire in the English Twenty20 tournament.
