The committee also placed the fast bowler on a two-year probation period during which if he is found guilty of violating the code of conduct he could be banned for life.

However, chairman of the committee Shafqat Naghmi said Shoaib's suspension would be counted from the Twenty20 World Cup held in South Africa last month, so having missed seven matches he would be banned for five more games.

"He will not be considered for the five-match one-day series against South Africa but can make himself available for selection for the Indian tour [in November]," Naghmi said.

Nothing much changes in Pakistan, does it?
Once again, the PCB is making an international joke of itself.

The 13 match ban imposed on Akhtar is an absolute disgrace. It includes seven matches that he's already missed... most of which he's missed because of the drug incident (yet another incident handled farcically by the PCB).

If the PCB honestly believes that the majority of the cricketing world regard the current state of Pakistani cricket as anything short of a cesspit of cheating, corrupt, money-grubbing, liars: they really need to wake up.

In my opinion, the entire PCB should be sacked!

I heard about this the other day.

Shoaib has really lost his way, His poor form with the Ball is capped off these off-field disgretions, It wouldnt suprise me if he didnt get back into the team..

The problem is that the PCB have already made it perfectly clear that they have no intention of persecuting their little super-star pet(Akhtar).
If he, & Asif, had passed their last round of PCB arranged medical tests, conducted at a private clinic in England a couple of days prior to the last ODI World Cup, they would have been selected to play in that tournament. Instead, the whole disgraceful mess was swept under the carpet & the PCB never uttered boo about it again.

If the PCB were prepared to select players that they'd suspected of being drug cheats, I find it hard to believe that they give a stuff about anything other than keeping the Pakistani public happy by looking after their 'pet'.

Personally, I'd hate to be a Pakistani cricketer right now... I feel genuinly sorry for the rest of the team!
