Lahore:A tribunal has adjourned an appeal by allrounder Rana Naved-ul-Hasan against a one-year ban and heavy fine, an official said on Saturday.
Naved was one of seven Pakistani players who were handed bans and fines on March 10 following an inquiry into team defeats in Australia and discipline breaches on earlier tours of New Zealand and the United Arab Emirates.
Pakistan lost all three Tests, five one-day internationals and a Twenty20 match on the tour of Australia between December and February.
Former captains Younus Khan and Mohammad Yousuf were banned indefinitely "over infighting which brought the team down", while Shoaib Malik and Naved were banned for one year and fined two million rupees (24,000 dollars).
Shahid Afridi, Kamran Akmal and Umer Akmal were also fined heavily.
"The tribunal of Justice Irfan Qadir heard the appeal and after Naved's request to meet the PCB chairman the proceedings were adjourned for September 27, while Naved is given a meeting with the PCB chairman on September 7," PCB legal adviser Talib Rizvi told AFP.
Yousuf did not appeal against his ban, instead deciding to retire in protest. He was recalled to the team under the PCB's discretion earlier this month.
Younus and Malik's bans were overturned on appeal, while the fines of the players were halved by the tribunal.
Naved last week said he was desperate to meet PCB chairman Ijaz Butt so he could get his ban revoked.
Rizvi said all the players had learned their lesson.
"The PCB took the actions against the players to give them a lesson that they are not bigger than the game and since all the players have apologised, the PCB's objective is achieved and you will see a difference in their discipline in the future," said Rizvi.
Naved, who has played nine Tests and 74 one-day matches for Pakistan, said: "I hope that once the PCB chairman hears my side he will forgive me. I am desperate to play for Pakistan."
