Moin Khan, the former Pakistan captain and wicketkeeper, was freed on bail after a brief detention over a complaint that he beat up his wife at home.

Moin, who lives in Karachi's Clifton seaside area, was arrested early Tuesday morning after his wife, Tasneem Khan, lodged a complaint with a local police helpline. He was subsequently released in the evening after submitting a surety bond, local police officer Azad Khan said.

"Moin was produced before a court and on a guarantee that he would not repeat the act he was released," Khan said.

The 35-year-old former wicketkeeper-batsman, who played 69 Tests and 219 one-day internationals for Pakistan, was quoted in Jang, a Karachi-based Urdu daily, as saying that he committed the act "in extreme anger".

"It was a personal matter and I would like to solve it in consultation with my elders," Moin reportedly added.
