Karachi:

The Pakistan Cricket Board will not stop suspended all-rounder Shahid Afridi from taking part in the national Twenty20 championship, scheduled to be held in Faisalabad from June 24.

A well-placed source in the board said that as of now far it has been decided to allow Afridi to lead the Karachi Dolphins side in the tournament despite the ongoing disciplinary process against him.

"Since it is a domestic tournament and the matter between him and the board is now in court it is felt it is better he is allowed to captain the Karachi side in the event," a source said.

The Karachi City Cricket Association has also written to the board, seeking written clearance to allow Afridi to lead their team in the tournament.
