Karachi - The Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) have rejected a request from former captain Shahid Afridi for permission to play for English county Hampshire.

A PCB official said on Thursday Afridi had been asked to appear before a disciplinary committee on June 8 to respond to several charges of violating his central contract clauses.

"We have scheduled the hearing as soon as possible. It is now in the hands of the disciplinary committee. If it feels right it can give him clearance to play for Hampshire," PCB media manager Nadeem Sarwar said.

Afridi, 31, who led Pakistan to the semi-finals of the World Cup this year, announced his retirement from international cricket on Monday in protest against his removal as captain for the recent one-day series against Ireland.
