Karachi:

Opener Imran Nazir, who has terminated his contract with the rebel Indian Cricket League, could face a three-game domestic ban and a fine of Rs 10,000 for his unsporting conduct during Pakistan's national T20 championship in Lahore on Friday night.

Match referee Mohammad Sami confirmed he had recommended a fine of Rs 10,000 and a three-match ban on Nazir after he was seen abusing umpire Nadeem Ghouri for giving him out leg before in the final.

"The umpires also reported against him but I have sent my recommendations to the board and it is now up to them to enforce the penalties," he said.

"You don't expect players to react in this manner to a umpire's decision. It is not acceptable," Sami said.

Nazir, who played a crucial role in Pakistan's runners-up finish in the inaugural edition of the Twenty20 World Cup in South Africa, is one of the ICL players who is likely to make a return to the national team.

However, the Pakistan Cricket Board has still not confirmed whether Nazir had cut off all ties with the ICL and had got clearance from the league to play for the country again.
