Shoaib Akhtar has been fined US$5000 by the Pakistan board for two breaches of the players' code of conduct.

According to Shafqat Naghmi, the PCB's chief operating officer, Shoaib left the fitness and training camp in Karachi early and without permission.

"Today also he was asked to appear before the disciplinary committee of the board but he didn't show up," Nagmi said. "He has also been docked 1.5 points from the total of 20 points available to the players for discipline in their central contracts."

Akhtar, who left the camp complaining of a stiff neck, was named in Pakistan's 15-man squad yesterday for the Twenty20 World Championship and will make his long-awaited return to international cricket after being sidelined due to a drugs ban and various injuries.
