Islamabad - Former Pakistan captain Shoaib Malik has filed an appeal after being suspended for one year and fined by the Pakistan Cricket Board for ill discipline.

PCB legal adviser Taffazul Rizvi said on Wednesday that Malik has filed an appeal through his lawyer.

Malik was banned and fined two million rupees ($23 500) as one of seven players punished by the PCB for ill discipline, ball tampering or poor performance during Pakistan's tour of Australia earlier this year.

The others are Kamran Akmal, Umar Akmal, Rana Naved, Shahid Afridi, Younis Khan and Mohammad Yousuf.

Only Yousuf is yet to file an appeal and he has until April 16.
