All three bans are for 12 months, with Sohail's covering all domestic games for Karachi, while the two others will not be allowed to play T20s.

The three players have represented Pakistan on the international stage, with Sohail Khan having played two Tests, five one-day internationals and three Twenty20 internationals. Fawad Alam has played three Tests, 27 ODIs, and 24 T20Is. Khalid Latif has played five one-dayers and seven T20Is.

Fawad Alam for the national test side ? are you guys kidding me ? That guy CANNOT hold the bat properly. As for his consistent performances , he is not among the top 15 run getters in the Quad-e-Azam trophy . Do you guys live in another planet where you cannot watch players like Harris SOhail or Umar Amin or Akbar-ur-rehman ???

This is very good decision, now I am looking forward to have a strong domestic circuit of Pakistan cricket, by taking any minor thing serious, at the top it should be discipline by all players. either national side or of any domestic player.

@Shrekk: Fawad Alam can still be selected for the Pakistan Test team. But unfortunately he'll get overlooked as usual. His domestic stats are among the very best. But he's not a "fashionable" choice.

A 12 month ban for a bit of indiscipline, criticising the coach? Very harsh. But it also sends a strong message to the rest of the Pakistan players, especially youngsters.

This looks bad for Fawad...i've been itching all over to see him take up a most well-deserved spot in our otherwise eccentricity-laden so called Test batting line-up...i'm not sure if any other batsman has performed so consistently in the domestic circuit this season.
