The Afghanistan Cricket Board (ACB) banned wicketkeeper batsman Mohammad Shahzad in August 2019. While the ACB did not reveal the reasons for the ban on him, Shahzad described it as a conspiracy against him. Now the ban on Shahzad has been lifted. However, his contract ban will continue.
Giving information about this, the ACB tweeted that Chairman Farhan Yousafzai accepted his mercy petition, due to which the Disciplinary Committee has lifted the ban on Mohammad Shahzad playing cricket. But the ban on his contract has not been lifted and will continue till August 2020.
Be aware that the 33-year-old wicketkeeper batsman's career has been fantastic. He has scored 2727 runs in 84 matches including 6 centuries. At the same time, Shahzad has 1936 runs in 65 T20 International matches, including a century.
