Karachi - Retired cricket star Shahid Afridi will not appear before the Pakistan Cricket Board disciplinary committee on June 8 to face charges of violating the code of conduct, his lawyer said Monday.

"The process followed by the PCB does not conform with the law as even under Pakistan's constitution there is a right given to everyone to be heard before a case is decided," Afridi's lawyer Syed Ali Zafar told a press conference.

The PCB summoned Afridi to appear before a three-man disciplinary committee, after the former one-day captain decided to retire from international cricket last week.

The PCB said Afridi violated the players' code of conduct in announcing his retirement and in punishment suspended his central contract and revoked all no-objection certificates to play abroad.

Afridi developed differences with coach Waqar Younis over selection matters during last month's tour of the West Indies and his public criticism saw the PCB replace him as captain.
