Meanwhile, Shahzad was suspended by the Afghanistan Cricket Board (ACB) for an indefinite period of time following his breach of the code of conduct laid out by the board. He was banned by the board on account of travelling out of the country without seeking permission of the governing board.

“As per ACB’s policies, any player travelling out of the country is required to seek the permission of ACB. Shahzad has not adhered to this, repetitively” read a statement issued by the ACB.

Shahzad, on his part also shared a video where he was seen to shed tears while accepting his guilt. He also said that the board was gulity of declaring him unfit to play despite him being fit like any other cricketer.

“I still don’t know why I was ruled unfit when I was fit enough to play. Some people in the board (ACB) have conspired against me. Only manager, doctor and the captain knew that I was going to be replaced. Even the coach (Phil Simmons) found out much later. It was heart-breaking,” Shahzad had told in a video he posted on social media.

The Gladiators currently top the table in the group stage with 6 points from four games while the Tuskers are languishing down the bottom with two points from three games.
