The PCB has warned Shahid Afridi that his career would be at stake should there be any repeat of the scuffing incident in the second Test at Faisalabad.
Afridi was banned for Pakistan's final Test for deliberately walking over the pitch during an interval on the second day of the drawn Test. He will also miss the first two matches of the five ODI series against England, which starts on December 10.
The PCB's chairman, Shahrayar Khan told reporters that Afridi received an official reprimand by the ad-hoc committee.
